Sleepy School Kid Confuses A Chair For His Bag

We've all had bad days.

Days when nothing seems to go to plan, days when you're just on a one-way trip back to your bed, days when the world seems to conspire against you at every possible occasion.

For this one kid in the Philippines, this was definitely one of those days.

It was the end of a long day, it was presumably quite hot - this being the Philippines and that - and he probably had a lovely lunch to weigh him down as well.

He's minding his own business having a quiet kip with his head on the table when the bell goes for the end of the lesson and the rest of his classmates make their way out of the room, leaving the wee boy still fast asleep.

As the other kids march out of the room, a helpful teacher comes over and begins to pack up his belongings, putting them into his bag - which is still on his chair while the boy sleeps in it - and generally helping him out.


She gradually nudges him back from the land of nod and, realising that the lesson is over and he's been left behind by his classmates, he starts to set off, attempting to put on his bag as he goes.

Unfortunately for him, the bag is no longer there and instead he finds himself wrestling with a plastic chair, attempting to put that on like a rucksack.

In fairness to the wee boy, he does make a decent fist of wearing a plastic chair like a backpack, walking his way around the classroom and towards the door as his peers lose their minds laughing around him.

He continues to walk despite the laughter and eventually sort of cottons on that it's him that they're laughing it: perhaps an early reminder that, if everyone is laughing and you aren't, it is probably you that they're laughing at.

He does work it out eventually and make his way out of the classroom with what is left of his dignity left intact, presumably to begin his life having the piss taken out of him for being that kid who got himself caught on camera attempting to wear a plastic chair as a school bag.
