It's a Conspiracy, I Tell You

About those children I mentioned the other day...

Last week I was the victim of a conspiracy by two third grade boys. They plotted to have their mothers get me fired because they don't like the recess soccer schedule. They bragged about this to the girls, who told me.

We only have one field, so everyone can't play soccer every day. They have to take turns. They think this is unfair. Because their idea of fair is to let them play MORE soccer than anyone else. They want to take over the girls' soccer time.

One of the conspirators had his mom come to school last Friday. She talked to another aide, and his little ploy backfired when she found out he was fibbing about the schedule.

Interestingly, I had busted the schemers the day before, Thursday morning, for bad hula hoop behavior -- hitting each other with the hoops, tug of war with them, and throwing a hoop clear over the top of the handball courts.

(I want to thank all the teachers who GOT MY BACK! Whoo-hoo teachers, I love you all!!! It's been very quiet this week!)

But I feel like being as childish as they are...so what I have to say to those boys is...

Ha ha!



I'm still standing (on the playground).

Wow. Unusual behaviour for boys? That seems more of a girl behaviour trait. So glad the teachers had your back.

Not only was it great the teachers backed you up, but the mother actually did some checking. Hope those little sh*ts learned their lesson.

Disheartening to think of how easy it is for kids to scheme like this, but maybe this taught them a good lesson, and they'll straighten up.

Oh my hell! I'd never heard of Bruno before DWTS, but he must have been something back in the day. That video rocked!

Little known useless fact -- I can make the sound of Nelson's laugh PERFECTLY.

That sounds like a challenging playground. It is great to have the teachers backing you. And, funny that you were on to the boys before they knew it!

You wonder how they're being raised that they think that's an acceptable thing to do. I hope their parents come down really hard on them.
