Day Old Donuts – Not Just For Teachers Any More!


The principal rarely left his office or visited the teacher’s work room except  on Wednesday mainly because that was the day that someone usually brought donuts.  Nearly every Wednesday the principal would show up and have donuts complaining bitterly that the teachers needed to learn to close the cover of the box so that the donuts didn’t get dried out.He would partake of the spudnuts, sinkers, bear sign, every week but his complaints were never enough to cause him to spend his own money on something different.

The staff had  eventually caught on of course and had  started saving two doughnuts every week, saving them and then placing them in an open box each Wednesday  of the following week while the fresh doughnuts resided in a cupboard.  The principal wondered aloud if the teachers would ever buy fresh donuts  instead of the day-old “on sale”  stale donuts they seemed to always buy.

He continued to complain about the donuts every time he took one throughout the year as it seemed to him that they were always stale, although this never stopped him from eating them.

He was right of course; perhaps if he had ever bought or brought they would have been fresher.

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
