“But Miss, you are not a Pilipino!”

Heard at my daughter’s school.

”Miss, are you fasting?” a child asks her teacher.
No dear, I am not,” replies the teacher.
“Why not?” enquires the child.
I am not a muslim,” replies the teacher.
“You’re not a muslim? Then what are you, Miss?” asks the child.
“I am a christian,” replies the teacher.

A puzzled look appears on the child’s face.

But Miss, you are not a Pilipino!”

Are we going somewhere?

I guess the kid is not learning much at school.

What is this world coming to?

No, and not a sisi lanka either...

Just wonder whether the kid might think he can be as rude to the teacher as to the p+s's.
Or might think that thyey are really special :)
