Passing Notes

It was Friday at the continuation high school. A group of students in the back far corner weren't doing a heck of a whole lot, but the conversation was fairly benign. 

The period ended. They left. I did a quick sweep of the room to pick up loose papers and pencils when a page caught my eye.


It was left where that group had been sitting. And it makes no sense. Neither side.

"I Feel like we look like them 'the city'!"
I mean, it wasn't like they were silent. Why they needed to write this stuff down, I have no idea. 

Just when I'd given up on the future of the human race, I spied a notebook from the same class.


I have no idea what the rest of the second thing is supposed to be (besides the anarchy symbol), but the first statement is rather well put. 

Of course, he would have spent his time better, oh, I don't know, perhaps doing the assignment for class.

Ah well. It was Friday, after all.

  1. The second statement on the notebook looks like he was going to write "people are not expected" or "people are not expecting" but got interrupted...maybe by a teacher looking at him?!!! I wonder if they were writing notes because they were talking about someone seated nearby?

    1. But the rest of the class was pretty quiet, so nearby students would have noticed them suddenly shutting up and passing a note. That would have been more suspicious.

  4. It does make you wonder about the notes. Maybe written in some code only they know?

  7. The notes I find usually say, "You smell" or "you love ethin" (sic). It's amusing in a way don't you think?

    1. Yeah, that's usually the notes I find as well. And I love to share them here as the spelling and grammar is usually...well...interesting.

  8. Friday before a three-day weekend. Even I had trouble concentrating on my assignment. :) The only EXPE I know is the stock market symbol for Expedia. Doubt that's it.

  9. For the first note I'd guess that he was talking about Mike Myers. They are too young to associate him with Wayne's World or Austin Powers. I have no idea what the second note could be about.
