Less than 25 minutes after arrival at school student comes down just not feeling well, feels nauseous and his stomach hurts then proceeds to tell me he was throwing up all last night but mom wanted him to try to go to school today! C'MON!!!

Shocking update-mom's phones are all going to voicemail. :sarcastic:

OK,OK, I have another.

If you wake up with pain (headache, injury, etc.) take medication before you get to school! Common sense people!

What is this condition you speak of??

I'm pretty sure my expectations are too high sometimes. If only common sense was contagious!

Kid: I'm nauseous and have chest pain since 3 this morning, but I didn't tell my mom because I didn't want to wake her up but then I texted her when I got to school. And she told me to come to you. And then she said she would pick me up.

Me to Mom: Your kid is here, the chest pain is actually stomach pain. No vomiting, no fever, good coloring, no immediate distress. I don't think she needs to go home unless you really want her too.

Mom: Well, I'll just pick her up anyway, since she's usually good about not calling from school.

If you didn't want to be in school, just tell mom before you get on the bus, c'mon now!

:sarcastic: You give your kid a cell phone lady? Too much power. Make your kid go to the office to call you.

C'mon now.

I would be so, so happy if we would take the phones from the kids! I'm not sure who would take it worse though, the kids or the parents.

Oooh my turn, my turn!

A 4th grader came in with a pass that said "tip of nose itches".

Me: "Oh wow how did you manage to break every bone in your hands?"

Student: "I didn't..."

Me: "Oh good, so you can scratch your own nose. Back to class!"

Ok ok, that dialogue didn't actually happen. But C'MON NOW!

I travel between buildings. One day, when I got to one of my schools, there was a tub of mucusy (sp?) nasty liquidy stuff sitting in the office. Obviously some kind of body fluid, most likely yak. I contacted the custodian, who was nice enough to swiftly dispose of it before some student got into it or someone bumped into it and spilled it. ( Kids are allowed in and out of the nurse office at that school, whether I'm there or not, and my office is not much bigger than a closet.) At the end of the day, a teacher came to me, demanding to know where her recycling bin was. A student had barfed in it first thing in the morning before I got there, so she decided to put it in my office. I told her a bin full of potentially infectious fluid had been taken by the custodian to dispose of properly, but...C'MON NOW!

This calls for not only a C'MON NOW, but a swift smack upside the teacher's head. Good grief.
