English teacher: “Only those who give me a good excuse for not doing their homework will not be punished. Please stand up.”
Sheela stands up on the bench. She is seen shaking her head in exasperation.

English teacher: “I am proud of you. I am glad you remember the saying, ‘All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy.’ Please continue to sit and do not stand up on the bench.”
