Sometimes It’s Worth Risking a Fight With a Parent

September 27, 2014

I’m glad the teacher didn’t let this most unreasonable parent have her way:

A crazed feminist told a second grade school teacher that she hopes she gets beaten on a nightly basis by an abusive husband because she refused to hand out vagina shaped cookies to her class. 

The unnamed teacher asked a friend to post details of the bizarre encounter on her Reddit account. 

According to the story, the teacher regularly invites volunteer parents to cook snacks for her class on a Friday when the children have been well behaved. 

The teacher said the woman arrived at the school and handed over a plate full of treats and said: ‘I decided you can use these to teach the kids about the woman’s vagina today.’

According to the teacher: ‘Baffled and completely caught off guard I slowly peel the aluminum foil off the pan to behold a plethora of sugar cookie and frosting vaginas. 

‘Not just any old vagina, but ALL KINDS OF VAGINAS. There were small, puffy, white, brown, shaved, bald, and even a fire crotch with beef curtains. Perplexed I give the parent the most professional look I can muster and quietly reply “I’m sorry, but I can’t give these to my students. This just isn’t appropriate.”

The teacher said the outrage parent started shouting at her in front of the class of seven-year-old children. She said ‘I should be proud of my vagina and ‘I am settling for a women’s role in life’. 

The feminist, according to the story, shouted the word vagina repeatedly before storming out of the classroom. 

Later that afternoon the teacher received several phone calls and emails from parents wondering how their child learned the word ‘vagina’ while at school.  

Then, the crazed mother sent a series of abusive emails to the teacher, wishing domestic violence upon her.

You Don’t Get Respect From Punishing Every Disorderly Act

October 23, 2012

The students involved would have got suspended in a less tolerant school. But this teacher shows up trigger-happy schools that suspend like it’s going out of fashion, when he decides to take a more thoughtful approach to reacting to a ruckus:

A Chicago magnet high school senior prank turned into an example of excellent school management when a dean took an unconventional approach to a feisty student’s challenging behavior last Tuesday.

In a video posted on YouTube and social news site Reddit, students on the second floor of Whitney M. Young High School in Illinois decide to stage a dance-battlesque senior prank.

Teens begin to bang on chairs and tables, and the students start hollering. One boy, with the loud support of his peers, runs up to a faculty member’s doorway and dances in front of a woman’s face.

The student then circles the space, looking for another challenger, when a man in a white shirt and tie catches his eye. The young man takes a flying leap, lands in front of the teacher’s nose and begins to dance furiously.

What happens next, however, is both hilarious and unexpected.

Clearly amused, the administrator, identified in the video as Dean of Students John Fanning, takes the boy’s hijinks in stride, breaking out into a dance of his own that looks an awful lot like a version of an Irish jig.

“Like any kid who grew up in [predominantly Irish Chicago neighborhood] Rogers Park, I was dragged to Irish dance classes,” Fanning told The Huffington Post.

The post on Reddit is titled “Teacher strikes back in the best way possible,” and many of the comments commended the teacher for his response. “No one got assaulted, no one got insulted, everything was awesome,” user “ppcpunk” wrote.

Why get angry? Fanning asked. “As senior pranks go, it’s pretty tame and innocuous,” he said.

Dad’s Letter to 13-Year Old Son after Discovering he had been Downloading from Porn Sites

September 27, 2012

This letter proves getting angry isn’t the only way to deal with potentially difficult situations:

I want to start out by saying that I love ya and I’m not trying to embarrass you. Before you do anything else click the star in the upper right hand corner of internet explorer which is already pulled up and then click back on the icon to the right of the skype symbol in your toolbar to pull this page back up. —————————————> That history is the reason that you got that scamware and all the other crap on your computer. I want to tell you that it’s ok. Listen, I was 13 once too and it wasn’t so long ago that I don’t remember. I’m not mad or anything. It’s life and I did it too. I just want you to know that most of those sites are places that can and will ruin your computer. You were actually lucky that it only did what it did. There are viruses and other scamware that can completly ruin a computer and I can’t afford to buy you another 1800 dollar machine because you went to a site that fried it.

There are sites that are completely safe and you can go on them and not have your computer turned into a piece of junk. You can go to these sites and not screw up your computer. Don’t click on any links taking you to other sites and please only go to these. Ninty percent of porn sites have crap that can brick a computer …

Listen, I won’t tell your mom and I’m not gonna make a big deal out of this. In fact I’m not gonna make any size deal out of it. If you don’t wanna talk about it that’s fine and I completely understand. I’ve been on this earth three times as long as you and there’s nothing you have done or will do that I haven’t done before. If you want to completely ignore this ever happened then I can and will do that too. Please don’t act awkward around me because of this. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. I just can’t have an 1800 dollar machine turned into a brick because you haven’t learned where to go on the internet. I’m not going to put a child lock on your computer or punish you in any way because as I said you did nothing wrong. I would like you to not be back here so much though. You literally spend all of your time back here. I’d like to see you more often. I like doing stuff with you and miss it.

I love you and I couldn’t be more proud of you.
