School house of clowns

Having a laser pointed at you isn’t a big deal, but it can be irritating.  Identifying the culprit was like a game for me, however.  When I look up too quick, they would cease.  If I maintained my position, they were less responsive.  I allowed their shenanigans to continue and identified that there were two clowns.

One clown cheated on their test this afternoon as well.  After class, a witness came forward to report a theft involving those clowns the day before.  They’re going to catch hell over the weekend.  Maybe not from the parent, guardian, ring leader, etc.,  but from someone.

It’s real easy to identify those who don’t care.  If it were my classroom, I would be more than happy if they didn’t show up at all.

    Actually, having a laser pointed at you can be a big deal, depending on the laser. That’s why it’s a federal felony to shine a laser at an aircraft in flight.

    I see the potential for it classified as a big deal. They weren’t shining it in my eye, so I shrugged it off. I would imagine not being so cool about it if they did.

    That stuff is annoying. Luckily I haven’t had to deal with that yet. Though seeing kids drinking at the bar I bounce at and then miss assignments the next day while trying to ask for an extension? now that is annoying.

    My current favorite is to tell them at the bar we have an in class activity for credit the following day. They drag in, hung over and wait all class for the activity that never comes. Mean? yea, but funny? totally.

      I wish I could try that. Someday… I’ll have so much fun…
