A woman who was working as a substitute teacher posted a video to social media alleging she was fired by school officials. Why? Because she didn’t meow back at a student who thinks he’s a cat.
Now there’s no way to confirm or debunk this woman’s account. But for what it’s worth, here’s what the teacher claimed:
“Okay, okay. I’ve got to rant for a minute,” the teacher says. Just when I thought school couldn’t get any weirder, it did today.”
“I’m a sub, and the most important we do is take roll, so the school gets paid. So, I’m looking at the seating chart as I’m going up and down the rows and marking who’s here and who’s not,” continues in the clip. “I get to the third row and I hear this ‘meow!’ Uhhh, excuse me? Excuse me?” she narrates.
“I start looking on the ground, through the fourth row—everything’s good. Go to the fifth row—everybody’s there. Then I hear ‘meow!’ I’m like, ‘Okay, what’s up with that? Who’s doing it?’ And this little girl in the very front row says, ‘You have to meow back at him; he identifies as a cat.’ Are you kidding me?” she questions.
“I said, ‘Is there a litter box in here somewhere?’ My sarcasm self: I probably should not have said that,” the educator continues.
“He gets up and he storms out of the classroom, and I’m like, ‘Ruff!’ Of course, the entire class is laughing. I think, ‘Oh, no problem, no foul.’ I go to the office—Are you ready for this?—to check out. They said, ‘We no longer need your services if you can’t identify with all the children in the classroom.’ And you wonder why they don’t have any subs!” the teacher exclaims on video.

Again, there’s no evidence that proves or disproves this story. But I wouldn’t be surprised if this story is true, because there are schools that tolerate this insanity.
