My father was fuming: my grandmother shouldn't even be on the school's contact list, so how my teacher got her number, which is apparently unlisted, is also unknown. The school has my father listed as my principle contact, so he should have been first to receive a call from him if anything was needed. Now, it seems there will be hell to pay.

My father can be... a wrathful man and I learned well to fear the sort of tone he was speaking in.
My teacher is usually a pretty good teacher, this sort of move is incredibly strange, unheard of in fact, and I must admit to having a feeling of extreme anxiety at hearing of this.

I have no clue how to handle this sort of situation. I do not need this sort of thing happening, damnit! I already have enough stress from the work I need to do, and from waiting on a call for work experience I need done...

I feel sick.

It's the school who are at fault for directing the call wrongly. Maybe ask your teacher? You remember doing anything evil the last little while? It might be something mundane and teach just called the wrong number. Don't stress about shit that you can't do anything about.

In fact, maybe it was a wrong number and it wasn't about you, or it wasn't from the school. How muddled is your grandmother?

I can understand your father being upset if it upset his mother, but he is making unwarranted assumptions.

Apparently, my grandmother got a call from a person with the name of my modern history teacher, who identified them self as my teacher by name, the name of whom I have never told her and she couldn't know otherwise. Additionally, she apparently told my father of being asked about an assignment I have due, which again she could not have known about regardless.

It must be one hell of a coincidence chain.

I have been hyperventilating all morning. Someone please direct me to the shopping aisle where I could possibly purchase "a grip," 'cause I need to get one.

RE: Ranting corner
Looks like I now have no option but to save up and see a dentist.

Why?
All but one of my wisdom teeth are wrong in some way, but the two which have stopped developing are fine, even though one is impacted and if it starts growing again it'll cause big problems.

My newest one however is a big problem: it is growing out toward my cheek.

I have no fucking luck when it comes to health!!

RE: Ranting corner
Alright, new, slightly tweeked, life plan.
Work until 5th of January at new job. Get offered a full time contract (it's pretty much guaranteed you'll get a full time contract out of the temp christmas one I'm on). Once offered full time contract buy new motorbike. Work for the rest of the year saving 50% of wages (minus motorbike repayments). That should then pay off the motorbike and leave me with over half of what I need to do my OE. So work for another 6months to 1year (working for another year would give me double what I need if not paying off motorbike. 6months would give me several grand over what I need, so taking into account unforeseeable expenses 6months will probably give me what I need). Go to England on 1year working visa. Do casual work and travel around Europe and shit and see what I wanna see. Then either a) just get citizenship and stay there (most likely outcome) or b) come back here (OR c) go somewhere in Asia and do an Asian OE, but I don't know how feesable that is). Then "life" can begin. So, find job (or get old job back), work and save for a year. Have food trailer design built. Build that up, work it for a year or so depending on how successful and shit. Go to bank be like "yo dogs, this is what I can do with a trailer so give me money so I can open a motherfucking shop". Open shop. ??? WORLD DOMINATION! retire, die, get brought back to life, ENTIRE UNIVERSE DOMINATION!
