A former Sergeant in the Marine Corps took a new job as a high school
teacher. Just before the school year started, he injured his back. He
was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body.
Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable. On
the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest
students in the school. The smart-aleck punks, having already heard
the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew
they would be testing his discipline in the classroom. Walking
confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the
window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his
tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.
The rest of the year went very smoothly.

I laughed my butt off.
LMAO!!! I might have to try that with my new students in a couple of weeks! It already helps that both of my arms are sleeved in tattoos!
Thanks for a good laugh

Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a
Little 5-year-old girl and some construction workers that will make
You believe that we all can make a difference when we give a child the
Gift of our time.
A young family moved into a house, next to a vacant lot. One day, a
Construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot.
The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers.
Eventually the construction crew, all of them "gems-in-the-rough,"
More or less, adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted
With her, let her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch
Breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her feel
At the end of the first week, they even presented her with a pay
Envelope containing ten dollars. The little girl took this home to her
Mother who suggested that she take her ten dollars "pay" she'd
Received to the bank the next day to start a savings account.
When the girl and her mom got to the bank, the teller was equally
Impressed and asked the little girl how she had come by her very own
Pay check at such a young age.. While her mother smiled with pride the little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with a real construction crew building the new house next door to us."
"Oh my goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be working on the house again this week, too?"
The little girl replied, "I will, if those jerks at Lowe's ever
Deliver the darn sheet rock..."
