Sometimes they surprise you…

Today I had the shock of my life. 
After school was out, just about quitting time – the phone rang. 
“Library – Mrs. Hot speaking…”
Student – “Mrs. Hot?  I am out sick and I have library books due and I won’t be back before I start getting fine charges and I was wondering if I could renew them over the phone…?” 
Mrs. Hot – “OMG! I think I am going to have to sit down! 
Wow, you are so responsible! 
In seven years, I have never had anyone call to renew their books over the phone…” 

Sometimes they surprise you….sometimes they disappoint you. 
This afternoon, a student took out his cell phone, during class time and started texting….in front of me.
The student decided to take the defiant route when I requested his cell phone….he had an escort to the principal’s office…and I hope…at least, a 60 minute detention. 

He probably won’t serve it…no surprise there.
