I was an adjunct professor at a local college teaching a paralegal course in criminal law. Older student in his sixties, who felt superior to his classmates and the young punk lawyer adjunct professor trying to teach him made a bold statement that he knows everything and to stop wasting his time trying to teach him anything.

I saw a teaching moment and took it saying, “Scato is Greek for S.H.I.T. It just goes to show you sir that contrary to your assertion of knowing everything a minute ago, you don’t know scato…”
