An MGB in a plastic bag


One day I entered my room in the morning and found that everything was gone… pencils, grade book, teacher’s manuals, my plastic racquet ball jars of necessary goods even my potted plant. They left the snakes and mammmals. Apparently a female co-worker had found out who it was that had some 8th grade boys pick up her little MGB (little foreign convertible car) and place it between the music and shop buildings in such a way that it took her ½ an hour of back and forth movements with a stick shift and clutch to get it out. About a month later all of my possessions returned all at once in a black plastic garbage bag placed in the center of my desk with a ribbon tied on it. The plant was still alive but the grade book had not magically filled itself in.

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.
