RUDE: “Where are…

…you?” “I am in the toilet.” This is what makes me feel a bit angry. A kid student of mine is having a class in the toilet. Does it mean, “Time is gold?” I don’t think so. I personally think that this kid needs to know what is embarrassing or not. The course of action is to ask him to finish pooping before having the class. I told him it is not a good manner. What can I say, my online students are in characters these days? “Do you think that I am wrong?” “Is it fine to have a video call inside the toilet?” “What is a toilet for you?” Image Credit: kingfisher.scene7.com

This kid was not taught well, I won't be surprised if the parents talk to you in the same manner if you arrange a meeting to talk about their child ( I'm being sarcastic)

I am sure they will just ignore me. Luckily, he was able to drop to call and callback after a few minutes. He noticed that I won't start until he will be finished.

He is 10 years old. I don't want to say about nationality. I just give a hint and it is from Asia. If you wish I can send a private message.

I think there is a reason they don't put pay-phones in toilet booths, but...

I can't imagine if the booth will be installed in his toilet. One thing for sure, I can still remember his face. It cannot be painted.

This kid must learn good manners. Refuse to talk to him if he is in the toilet.

I was quite firm when I told him to call me back. I can't start if he is in the toilet. He agreed. I can't really understand why parents never call his attention to this concern.

@Shavkat Parents should teach to their kids what is rude and what they should never do.

I even asked him if he can focus. He admitted that it is not the right time. Of course, it is. He acknowledged my request to a callback.

@jiwonnie Uhm I think it can spice up your life when seeing this kind of student. It is only a few students who don't have manners. Personally, we can still act as a real teacher in teaching them what is right. It is enjoyable to teach online. It is not always having a bad day.

I don't need a visual if someone is on the toilet.And only video call if you're using the toilet as a chair and nothing else.

I agree. It is better for this student to have an audio call. Unfortunately, the student didn't take this option.

He was probably trying to multi-task. He should have called when he was at the proper desk/or area, not the toilet though!

Refuse to teach him if he doesn't site at a desk in a normal room and he'll soon learn. You can inform the parents about the situation.

I did ask him to drop the call first. Then, we can continue the class. He agreed and things were fine after. If he really insisted, I will definitely drop the call and report him.
