This morning at work I confiscated all of the dishes from my department's kitchen because people weren't using them nicely and cleaning up after themselves.
Mind, the people not cleaning up after themselves are all highly educated, so grad school won't necessarily help me avoid the embarrassment of having my dishes taken away by a secretary half my age. But it will help me find something more fulfilling to do with my time than figuratively withholding gold stars from the kids who haven't learned to use their good citizenship.
For the record, the grad student who works in the department office with me is a good citizen and I did, at one point, go and find a gold star just so I could give it to her. She displays it proudly on her desk. I'm not working in a school of education for nothing.Posted by dianna at October 4, 2007 08:57 PM
