What I learned in the cafeteria this week

Here's what I learned in the cafeteria this week:

  • When you are in kindergarten it is possible to lose three coats in one week.  I had to laugh when I showed a little girl where the lost and found was and she found three of her coats.  Her response "My mommy is gonna be willy happy you showed me this place."
  • Manners are as out of date as Little House.  Remember when Laura used to say things like "Yes, Paw" and "Right away, Maw."  Now kids say things like "Where's my food?"  "I don't like that"  "Why do we have to have peas?"
  • If a student has a balance of negative $10.00 I'm required to serve him/her a cheese sandwich and a milk.  If a teacher has a balance of negative $10.00 I'm supposed to smile and serve them like there isn't a double standard going on here.
  • Folding towels is a billable activity in the cafeteria.  Creating bulletin boards for the computer room is not a billable activity in the cafeteria and must be removed from your time card...even if the principal asked you to do it. 
  • If you get your picture taken for the yearbook, the company will give you a free portrait package with a bunch of wallets and even a few 5x7s.  Do you think I should put them in my Christmas cards?

I love your posts about school! The girl with the lost coats is cute. And *I* think you should be paid for decorating the bulletin boards!

Heck, I can still lose three coats in a week at my age. Unfortunately, they never seem to show up again.

BTW, what repulsive act was happening off camera for the photo? {*grin*}
