Maybe this is a silly question, but I need some quick advice.
Today (just an hour ago), I walked into my APUSH class. As I walked in, it dawned on me that it was my last APUSH class before Spring Break (starts at the end of this week for me).
So I stupidly open my mouth (in front of him) and go, “After this class, we don’t have APUSH for almost two weeks.”
I meant to say it in a sad sort of way, since APUSH is one of my favorite classes, but instead, I sounded much more ‘sassy’ (for lack of better word), which made it sound a lot more like a snarky, “this class sucks lol.”
Immediately I realized my mistake, and then I went, “Oh, that sounded really rude. I didn’t mean to say it like that.”
My teacher (who was annoyed/angry/upset) replied, “Yeah, that sounded rude.”
I’m tired. I was up until midnight fighting with my parents (over healthcare issues, not like normal teenager stuff). I just meant to show a little appreciation.
I have considered apologizing, but it seems overkill (I could be wrong). I’m not some sort of teacher’s pet, I have previously brought up a little satire in this class occasionally, but not in an extremely rude, “this student is an a**hole” kind of situation. I’m probably just not his favorite student or anything like that. I have kept an A- throughout the year, so I’m not awful (I think).
What should I do? I mean, I feel bad. To make it worse, I have the most work to do in this class, so it’s not like I can forget about it over break. Any advice?
