But some are great tales to share (as long as we delete names to protect the guilty). For example...
Enter fast food to save the day! Every day, Taco Bell, McDonalds, and Chick-fil-a brought in food and sold it from carts up by the office. On Thursdays, the Home Ec class sold baked potatoes with assorted toppings.
Students could eat their lunches anywhere in the school. We had kids piled into the cafeteria, kids seated up and down hallways, kids in classrooms (when teachers allowed), and kids outside in the courtyard.
And, of course, the girls were guilty of having used it as their personal trash can at lunchtime for the past few months. There was actually a fair amount of laughter involved, even from the assistant principal. But it was time to pay the piper: They had to clean it out, stinky food and all.
But the best was yet to come. Moments later, I heard hysterical shrieking coming from the hallway! I stuck my head out again, wondering if there was some emergency.
