It's almost over. The school year, that is. Students have 6 school days remaining, and teachers have 7. I. Can't. Wait. It has been a tremendously long school year. I have been teaching an extra class this year meaning I have no "off" period to make copies, make calls, plan, or grade. It's been tiring, but the end is in sight. I still haven't decided if I'm going to retire or teach one more year. I've been teaching longer than some of you have been alive, probably!
And speaking of work, have you ever had a lunch thief at work? I have never had my lunch stolen, but I've heard from people who have. I wonder what possesses someone to take someone else's lunch. Wouldn't they be afraid they'd be caught? Not to mention forcing someone to go without or, God forbid, eat school cafeteria food!
According to CNBC, 1 in 5 people admit to having stolen from the community refrigerator. That's a lot! One man told how he put hot sauce and ghost chili pepper on his leftover wings so he could catch the thief. Or you could try this:
My husband tells the story of a secretary at his office who was stealing food, among other things. She was finally caught, and, of course, fired. Can you imagine the embarrassment? Or maybe that's the problem. Some people just have no shame.
