Quote from ruby_jane
A parent said I was brilliant. And it was said in a scorching British accent so it made me so haaaapppy!
Whenever I read the word "brilliant," I read it with a Brittsh accent
I guess the nicest thing anyone did was a follow-up call. A girl sliced open her finger, and was unable to keep pressure to stop the bleeding (she was fascinated and kept looking at it instead of squeezing it). Her mom was at a conference 2 hours away, and her father lives out of state. I finally told the girl to finish eating her lunch with her good hand, and I would glove up and squeeze her finger. Finally got the bleeding under control. It wasn't life-threatening, so I didn't see the point of calling 911, but I didn't want to send her back to class, either, so she hung with me and read while we waited for mom. Mom called after they left the ER, and said "Thank you, you made the right call, she needed stitches. I'm glad I didn't pick her up for nothing." This mom is intense, and is a bit of a workaholic, so for her, that was about as nice as it gets
