How to Alienate the High School Faculty

 Those of you that are parents of teenagers know that every time your kid walks out the door your breath catches in your throat and you say a little silent prayer that he or she will be safe, make good choices and stay out of trouble.

If you have a somewhat checkered past yourself, you worry that they will repeat your mistakes or worse yet, get into more serious trouble than your own twisted teen brain had ever imagined.

One of the things that you dread the most is the call from the Principal or Dean of Students.  They never call to say hello.  If you ever get a personal call from them, it's usually because something egregious has occurred.  Your mouth goes dry as they say Mrs. Soandso, I am calling about your son/daughter.

That is, unless they are calling you about the issue below, in which case you laugh hysterically, unable to catch your breath and eventually just hang up when they can't get a word in over your laughter.  I haven't been popular with a principal since my son was in Jr High and I came this close  to taking his ass out at Texas Hold 'Em at Casino Night.  I let him win. He liked me.  The High School Principal...not so much.

Darn it:[ I'm out of town and can't see it on my phone. I'll check back in for sure when I'm home!

I'm guessing the faculty and staff is still chuckling about this one, but somebody's got to be the heavy, right? I would have laughed when they called too.

The best part is that they weren't really being bad. Criminy, there are so many worse things he could be doing!

Empress - True, except I might have been more inclined to steal a golf cart, park it in the elevator and ride up and down.

HOKGardener- They are very funny. There was an element of creativity in their prank.

MOTPG - I wonder why the image won't render on a mobile device. Blogger. Not my favorite, but I am too lazy to switch.

Lin - I felt the same way. If this is why I get called by the principal, then OK.

It was just too small for my old eyes, that's all.
Now-LMAO! Give that child a hug-I think they should have given them an award : )
