Perceptions of money

I am a high school English teacher.  This is what one of my colleagues had to deal with today:

Rude Student: What is the easiest English class that I could take in 12th grade?
Teacher: *tries to blow off the question* That's a bad attitude.  They are all hard.
Rude Student: Well, I figure, why should I even try?  I could get my GED and still make more money than any teacher in the school.
Teacher: *furious* You should really get out of my sight now.

There are really no words.  Needless to say, I'm not really feeling too thrilled with my job right now if this is what I am up against.
