The bad apple ruins it for everyone.

Hey phoena, here's a story to add to treating everyone like criminals:

Today a fourth-grader used their younger sibling and a friend to create a distraction in our school's book fair while the kid tried to steal /eight/ books by slipping them into their backpack. The kid wasn't socioeconomically disadvantaged and is the offpsring of a juvenile court prosecutor. Think dad needs to put a healthy fear of breaking the law into the kid before they get beaten down for that kind of foolishness.

Among the new policies instituted as a result, jackets and backpacks must be left in the hallway outside the book fair room (or better yet, left in the classroom). I spent the rest of the day shivering without my hoodie to ward off the A/C's cold rays. Thanks, kid.

As the animation supervisor said the other day "One bad apple spoils the soup." ;)

Oh, let's not talk about soup. Tuesday night was a chili dinner at the school; the leftovers went into the teachers' lounge refrigerator. This morning someone emptied one of the containers into the teacher's lounge sink (which does not have a disposal) and blocked up the pipes. Apparently it smelled something fierce all day, but it happened after I walked through before 8 AM.

I did the next best thing to importing my favorite Bear: I wore my fuzzy grey sweater! By the end of the day I think I'd been petted by at least 50 kids.
