“F#$% you Mister”

First time ever that a student has said something reasonably offensive to me “F#$% you mister”. Surprised me and the rest of the class. More surprising given I was only relieving the class although I had taught the student in previous years without incident. The catalyst was around cell phone usage for no good reason, although I expect there are many other issues in play. The student stormed out and I filed appropriate incident report and rang her parents. Funny thing is that I like the student and still do. I suspect whatever is really bothering her will surface at some stage and I don’t plan to take any further action, although the school may require I do… (We practice restorative justice.)
