I Give Up


So do all of America's experts, according to The Onion (NSFW). That is an awesome article.

I needed cheering up after a fire alarm being pulled right as the kids were coming in, ensuring mass chaos, and right as we were beginning bus call in the afternoon, ensuring more mass chaos.

Actually, I must say, it wasn't really that chaotic. Everyone was great. It was just generally sucky. It could turn out to be a problem with the alarm, but I'm betting on some goofball kid who I will continue to make up imaginary punishments for. Suspension won't be good enough. I was thinking having him (or her) call all the parents one at a time and profusely apologize. With around 1400 students that would take a while but I'm not sure it's draconian enough.

Leave your ideas in the comments. This should be fun. At least we don't have to worry about what all those pesky experts think.
