Misheard English

In a Kindergarten class:

Teacher: Please say present if your name is called, or absent if your friend’s name is called and he or she is not here. Can you say the word present?
Children: Present.
Teacher: Absent.
Children: Absent.
Teacher: Alexandra.
Alexandra: Present.
Teacher: Martin.
Martin: Present.
Teacher: Samantha.
Child: Upset.
Teacher: Pardon me?
Child: She’s upset.
Teacher: Why is she upset? Where is she?
Child: She’s not here. She’s upset.
Yikes!
