This is not a school story, but it is a true story nonetheless.
A cautionary tale about sending a rookie in to do a pro’s job.
This was overheard in the checkout line at the grocery store.
Flustered and hurried Dad: Hey! Who put this giant bucket of cheese balls in the cart? Put these back!
Kid: Uuummm, you did, Dad.
Other kid: Yeh, that’s right, you did. You said Mom would like them.
Dad: I did? Well then…ok, I guess.
Dad goes back to unloading the cart.
The kids look at each other in total disbelief that that actually worked.
And they spot me slowly shaking my head at their shenanigans.
But smiling at their brilliance.
