C'Mon Now! - page 93

Had a kid bring his wet, bloody tooth and plop it right on my desk. C'mon now! Or the kid that did running knee slide into my office. C'mon now! The ones old enough to cover their mouths... Read More

    So Friday I had to check in on 3 students who were hit in the head during fights, which sucked. And I thought that was going to be the biggest bump in my road for a while. Except yesterday.....

    A daily med student stole an insulin syringe and a blister pack of benedryl out of an unsecured sharps container. The issue of having a countertop sharps has already been handled to prevent this in the future, but c'mon now! Why the heck would you fiddle with that?!?!

    5 day out of school suspension, for having a dangerous object at school. He never said he got it from the sharps, there was a long conviluted story about finding it ouside Friday and just forgetting to give it to me to throw away the 3 times he saw me. It is a mess. The family is difficult, maybe they will move now, because we are all so hard on their kid??

    I had to explain to this emotionally disturbed 6th grader bloodborn pathogens and to just let adults handle these things. We handled everything as if his story were true, which was easier than telling him we knew he was telling a big fat lie.

    i have lip balm packets (because God forbid that the LDs have rough lips) in a red and white box. So when the kiddos come in and ask for one and I tell them "the red and while box that says lip balm" and point to the treatment cart at the red and white box and they go on the other side of the room and attempt to squeeze their hand into the sharps container, i can't help but weep a little for the future.


    almost forgot... c'mon now!!

    (ps - i die a little inside when it happens with a kid that has already come for lip balm from me like 10 times and then does this)

    This happened to me as a student.

    I had a classmate in High School who decided to show off during class how cool he was, because he was so "Gangsta!". Came with a blister pack of white tablets during Art class. Opened one up and looked at us, and took it and said it was Xanax to the other's surprise. I grabbed the blister pack to read it and to my hilarity it said, Zyrtec, Antihistamine. I laughed and said, dude this isn't Xanax, It's a allergy pill!" He started to argue that it was Xanax, because look it starts with a Z. I told him, "it's Zyrtec, Xanax starts with X!" This dude turned so red, he put the pills away and got back to work. Well at least he will be allergy free the whole day.

    C'mon now!

    I remember kids doing this when I was in high school too. One kid got "totally stoned" from one Prozac, lol. My favorite drink used to Sobe mixed with Sprite. I brought this to school one day and some kid took it, so I told him it was Sobe and vodka. It was hilarious watching him get "drunk", he was stumbling around and slurring his words, all because of Sprite.

    OMG you guys! I just had the weirdest, most disturbing thing happen last week. I have been wanting to post it here but been so busy I am just now getting to it! I had a spanish speaking Kinder come to me who had pooped his pants. Never seen him before, so I know this hasnt been a pattern at school. None the less, it IS February, and I stopped even attempting to help these kids change after Christmas break. I figure it is now time for these 5 and 6 year olds to have some responsibility for their bowel and bladder habits. Anyhoo, it took a good 15 minutes for me to get out of him that he had pooped and needed a change of clothes. I grabbed the extra clothes (we have a huge donation closet currently...but it is dwindling fast) and ushered him to the private bathroom in my health room. I handed him some flushable wipes as well, and went to close the door. (you know, for privacy, and smell purposes, and because its the socially acceptable thing to do when you are in public). He started FREAKING out, saying he was scared and putting himself between the door and wouldnt let me close it. oh did i mention that he already had his pants and underwear off and wast STEPPING I HIS POO! At this point I didnt have any other kids in the office, so instead of trying to reason with this kid, I just left my office and shut the door. I figured, ok well he didnt want the bathroom door shut so I will just give him some space. Nope. He tracked that poo all the way through my bathroom and all over my office, came to the office door naked as a jay bird and started crying and asking me to open the office door. Dear Lord child i am trying to give you some privacy!!! I literally had poo all over the floor, it was all over his feet and I was freaking out. Of course no one came to my rescue and I had to give up and give in and open the door and have him change. right then and there. In front of the entire office. Because he was covered in poo and I didnt know what else to do. I mean, C'MON!!!!!!!!!

    The force (of suggestion) is strong in that one.

    While I think this was funny a bit, I was thinking. So he doesn't know English or he does? Did you explain to him you were going to close the door for privacy or not? For me, if the child doesn't understand me or doesn't want to comply what I ask, I call their parents. Sometimes their parents reassuring them or coming to help, makes things easier. if I don't know the language, I get someone who does, which isn't much a problem here because majority of our students are Hispanic and I can speak Spanish, but still.

    Still... poor little guy but lol, gross...

    Do you mean to tell me that you don't have a standard procedure for this oddly specific event?
