So I am posting this in the teaching sub for a couple reasons, but mainly because it happened at school and it surprised me because it was teachers I have known for years

This post is not a complaint, nor am I angry, more just like, huh, so that's still goin on I guess

In the past 3-4 years, I have more or less never heard any of the standard 'all gaijin do this right?' or 'this is exclusive to Japan (4 seasons blah blah) then today, out of nowhere, it was just rapid fire

My vice principal just walked up to me and said 'hey, all gaijin are left handed right?' and I was like 'um, no, idk the exact number, but I think more than 90% are right-handed' and he was like that's so weird, someone told me the reason gaijin write left to right is because you are all left handed

Then like 30 minutes later, I yawned, and my coworker asked if I was alright, and I just said I had a late night last night because my daughter woke up a few times and I had to take care of her....and she went 'oh you are like a Japanese person' so I was confused, asked what she meant and she said 'well only Japanese people work so hard and sleep so little'

And then a coworker of mine went to see a musical live at a local theater, which was a performance of an American musical, and I was like oh I've never heard of that, but I'm not super into musicals, was it good? and her response was 'Yeah, I think only Japanese people really like going to musicals'

Again, I am not angry, I am just so confused.....like, I get all the people who like making fun of Japanese people for saying 'we have four seasons' and all that bullshit, but these are teachers saying these WILDLY inaccurate things to me..............like, I'm pretty sure America is one of the top places on earth to watch musical theater, if not the best....I woke up to take care of my daughter, and Americans actually work more hours than Japanese people on average in a year........and idk what the fuck was up with the left-handed comment, but at least there was some logic behind it

So I wanted to ask you all............what is the craziest thing a teacher has ever said to you? because today, I think I got 3 of my top 10 or so all in 1 shot_
