Phrase of the Week

I never: /I nĕv•ər/ exclamation. 1. An exclamation meaning “I didn’t do it!”, “I’m not guilty!”, “It wasn’t me!” or “It isn’t my fault!”

Example: “Who left their pencil on the back table?” … “I never!”


Side note: There are two very common circumstances when this would occur. First, no student is even remotely going to get in trouble and a simple question is asked. Second, someone is highly likely to have made a poor decision and everyone (including the person who made said decision) wants to claim innocence.

While drinking out of a school issued water bottle that they aren't allowed to take home:

Student A: *serious and curious* "Do you know how to wash dishes?"

Me: *cautious* "Yes...why?"

Student A: "Could you take my water bottle home and wash it?" *sly smile*

(My inner thoughts - adiiiiiiii...but also yes...I've been meaning to for a while now.)
