It can be embarrassing if your phone rings in the middle of the class. It would be even worse if the teacher asks you to put it on speaker. Here's a hilarious joke about a teacher who heard a doctor's call to a student.
A teacher had a strange rule when it came to phones in the class. The students were allowed to bring them in, but if it ever rang, they'd have to answer it on speaker.
The teacher thought it was pretty funny, but it was embarrassing for the students. One day, a student's phone rang, and the teacher asked her to answer it.

The voice on the other end of the call was the student's doctor. They said that they were calling to follow up with a test.
"Hello? This is your doctor. We would like to inform you that your pregnancy test came back positive. Just so you know, we have maternity services and counseling available 24/7 for you. Goodbye."

The entire class went dead silent, and the teacher was really embarrassed about putting a student through that awkward moment. The student noticed this and told the class that it was not a big deal.
They went on to explain that they had already thought of a name to give the unborn child. The entire class seemed shocked and intrigued by the revelation, so the student continued.

She smiled and said, "The first name will be April, and the middle name will be Fools."
Little Jimmy was failing his math class and was far behind his classmates. His parents tried tutors, cue cards, and other books, but nothing seemed to help.
Finally, they sought the help of a counselor. The counselor suggested that Jimmy should join a catholic school. Since Jimmy was okay with the idea, his parents enrolled him in a catholic school.
A couple of days into the new school, Jimmy was studying like never before. He stormed into his room as soon as he got home and only got out to eat.
His parents thought he was lying about studying, so they went into his room. They were left in shock to see that it looked like the lair of a mad scientist.
The room had a plethora of papers lying around with problems solved on it. Books left open for reference, and several inkpots already empty. A month went by, and Jimmy came home with the result of his first maths paper.

The paper was adorned with a big red "A" on it. The parents asked Jimmy about his change. "Was it the uniform? The nuns? The strict curriculum?" they asked.
Jimmy replied, "No," to all three. When his mom asked him what it was, Jimmy said, "On the first day, I saw a guy nailed to a huge plus sign, so I knew they weren't messing around."
