    Ugh. I hear you. I am in an elementary school, and I have been getting roughly 10 kids a day (many of those multiple times a day!) complaining about bug bites. It is totally out of control. I...

    That's kind of what I was thinking! Not to use it as one of the "actual" ones, but to add it to the back. I would think that someone in education would enjoy it. But with my luck, I'd get the old...

  19. Why do parents get mad when you send their kids home???
    WTH?? :no: That is absolutely insane. It reminds me a little bit of when we were having a "lockdown drill" at school. You know: Everyone stay put, lock the doors, stay away from doors/windows,...
