I had a case where the professor confused Magnesium and Manganese.
She was teaching how to do dissolved oxygen and I tried to tell her
she had the wrong reagents because I could see it from the color of
the solution.  She would not allow me to interrupt.  It was
embarrassing for both of us when I finally was able to break in
during her third attempt to get the reaction to work.
