Teacher Threatens To Spoil ‘Game Of Thrones’ To Silence Unruly Class (And It Worked)
CNET - A Belgian teacher decides he has one weapon against his video-only class: spoilers of who dies.
Being an educator is sometimes not that much different than being a prison warder.
Some teachers, though, bring both ingenuity and a deep knowledge of the human soul to their métier.
As the Telegraph reports, he resorted to a tactic so underhanded as to be positively beautiful. He told them he would spoil the plot of “Game of Thrones.”
He had read the books.
[The teacher] reportedly told the boisterous tykes: “If there is too much noise, I will write the names of the dead on the board.”
In case they didn’t quite get the picture, Belgium’s Nieuwsblad reported, he added: “They [the dead] are enough to fill the whole year, and I can even describe how they die.”
The class apparently didn’t quite believe this wily man. So, he began to write the names on the board, just as he had promised.
The minute the youths realized that their fantasies would be disabused, they bowed their heads and ceased their racket.
