Call to Confirm

My contest is open until 11:59 PM (my time: PDT) Wednesday. Make sure to enter.

And today I'm also over here with a bunch of cute plush items. Make sure to stop by and say "Hi". 

Wednesday at the continuation high school was a bit of a mess last week. There were so many teachers out that one of them wasn't covered. While this is standard at the traditional high schools, it's unusual at the CHS. So, I knew what I was going to do on my prep period.

I waited in the office to get confirmation. The office staff was busy. I asked, but I didn't get a yes. (I didn't get a no, either. I didn't get an answer.) Eventually I went to the class I was to cover for the day. I kept waiting for them to tell me that I was indeed covering that class. No one ever said anything.

Then it was the prep period. And I heard nothing. Until 15 minutes into class. I got a call.

"No one discussed you covering the class?"

Insert scream here.


  1. I don't know how you survive subbing. It sounds absolutely horrible.

    Here are my water bottle measurements.

    3 inches across the bottom and 11 inches to the top. :)

  2. "No. No they didn't. Even when I asked."

    I would have been pulling out my hair.

  3. Oh man. Your job. How do you keep from laughing and crying all at once?

    1. Some days it's a challenge to not laugh where they can see me. Then some days, I don't try to hide it.


I appreciate your comments.

I respond to comments via email, unless your profile email is not enabled. Then, I'll reply in the comment thread. Eventually. Probably.
