C'Mon Now!

  1. 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 but choose to cough right in your face instead.

    All together: C'mon now!!

    Some things just make me shake my head.

    The kids that come in staring at the candy jar and won't make eye contact, C'mon Now!

    (And no, OldDude, "candy jar" is not a euphemism for anything else, I mean, C'mon.)

    If milkshakes bring them to the yard... what do candy jars do?

    Student came to me wanting a pass back to class. This was half way into ninth hour. I hadn't seen him since seventh hour. I told him NO WAY!
    Same day...student asked for his pass, proceeded to write his own in front of me. I DID NOT give him a pass back to class.
    C'mon now!

    No joke, I watched a student stick his finger in his mouth (for what exactly I've no idea, too shocked to ask) and then WIPED IT ON MY FILE CABINET. I normally try to speak very lovingly (softie nurse here) but before I could filter myself, I blurted out, "Um, could you NOT stick your finger in your mouth and then wipe it on my cabinet?!"

    And more times than I can count, I've had to swiftly verbally intercept bloody nose tissues headed towards my desk ... which is 2 feet away from the trash can.

    And parents always want to know if there's something going around the school. Of course there is when your children can't keep bodily fluids to themselves! Bah!

    I get Hangry. When I am food deprived the meaner me comes out. And it seems the pukers always like to come when I am eating.

    I am not myself when I am hungry...

    Someone bring me a snickers.
