My Chinese teacher on the other hand, she always says "♥♥♥♥" instead of "sheet" when she's talking about paper. It's ceased to be funny, as she's mostly corrected that habit, but sometimes in class the kids (and I) adopt that habit for the class period.
I had a sub once who told us to "gather all our sheet(s) and place it on her desk." One kid began walking out. She said, "sir, why are you leaving the class?" He said, "well you asked me to put all my ♥♥♥♥ on your desk. I am take a ♥♥♥♥ in the restroom and dump it on the desk." She was like, "Why are there sheets in the restroom?" "cause I'm about to make one." "You are going to to the Teacher Work Room, too?"
At that point I was laughing. The dude was an idiot though. If he wanted to dump it on her desk, at least do it in class. That way you don't have to carry it around.
Her English was pretty bad.
