How can a student behave like that?

Subject: How can a student behave like that?
I was mad and totally out of control. I felt so bad.
I didní»t understand why a student would do this to me.
This was what happened.

This morning a student came to my office.

"My dear teacher, can you tell me the answer of the test you published?" he asked.

"Which test?"

"The one you created with quiz creator."

"Oh, got it. But why caní»t you figure out the answer yourself so that you can learn more."

"I doní»t want to", he said this with a high note, which made me feel so bad.
I wanted to become an ostrich so that I doní»t need to hear that.

"Doní»t be so hurry. So, you show me your answers and Ií»ll help you correct them, ok?"

He stood there in silence.

"Okay, Ií»ll show the answer, and I bet you will love it",
he said after a while.
He said it so confidently that I felt something wrong was going to happen.
Then he got out of my office.

This student was named Jimmy, who never listened to me and always did something to upset me.

In the afternoon, he came to my office again.

"My dear teacher, I didní»t figure out the answer, and instead, I made a quiz for you because I think ití»s a lot easier to test people," he said.

"Really? Where is it?"

"On the Internet, you type this site",
he showed me an site address on a piece of paper.
I typed it in my browser, wow, I was surprised.

"Wow, you use quiz creator too, but where do you get money for that" I said.

"Ití»s a free trial version; you can check this quiz and find out how it feels like to be quizzed."

So, I started reading it.
Then I got mad and I found Jimmy was gone while I was reading it.

Here was the question he provided to me:

What kind of animal do you think my teacher XX (my name) is?
There are two choices
1 Weasel. Because the words he said smells so bad.
2 Dinosaur. Because he looks like it.
And the right answer was the first one.

Here came another which made me out of control:
What does teacher XX (my name) do every day?
1 He just sat in his office looking at the roof like an idiot.
2 Actually, he do nothing but day-light dreaming.
3 He does a lot thing to make himself more like an idiot.

God, how could a student do this to me?
I had done so much to help him but he called me idiot!
Why my own student did this to me?
Where did I go wrong? How could I help this poor kid?
I wanted to do something to help this student to become a better student.
I wanted to help him learn to show respect to his teacher.

But this thing still hurt me badly because this quiz can go around easily and then everybody would know it. That was not good.

Ií»m now working on a method to clear this thing. Hope god will help me.

Nice quiz (in reply to: How can a student behave like that?)
Just kidding. Talk to student´s parents, and good luck. that´s nothing, what I´ve seen in my lifetime. So, get used to it. :)
