Jocks and geeks stick to their own tables during lunchtime, even in the teachers lounge, according to Robert Wilder, author of Tales from the Teachers Lounge: What I Learned in School the Second Time Around One Mans Irreverent Look at Being a Teacher (Delta Trade), which hits shelves Tuesday (Sep. 2).
Wilder says everyone in the teachers lounge tends to only hang out with their homies.
He explains, Theres the physically fit people who are in there stretching and talking about their triathlons, and there are the slobs, who are fat and dont care what they look like.
Theres even a popular crowd hanging out in the lounge, which Wilder says consists of, Young, hip teachers who have tattoos and designer eyewear. Theyre like the Paris Hiltons of the teachers lounge.
Though for the most part everyone gets along, Wilder says there is one group no one dares cross.
He explains, The crossword puzzle people are crazy. I dont mess with them.
