Need a Ticket
And this is it. The last one of the posts from that 8th grade science class. Since no one is around the blogosphere this week, I considered holding off. But, I did promise to have these finished by Christmas. So here it is. The last one...
Last week I mentioned that In-n-Out was catering lunch on the second day of this assignment. To get a burger (and chips, not fries), the students had to purchase a ticket. I learned of this from the 1st period T.A. She was selling tickets, and several students hit her up for them.
Wednesday. 4th period. Right before lunch.
"Can I go and buy an In-n-Out ticket?"
As in, she wanted to leave class to do this. When she had days to go and get a ticket.
"But if I don't buy a ticket, I can't get In-n-Out. Ms. O. would let me go..."
Maybe. Unlikely, but maybe. Still, she'd had days, and...
She grumbled. "...Mom only gave me the money today..."
So, she waited until 4th period? When she could have gone before school. Or at snack. (Or asked any of her other teachers to let her go. Because I'm sure they would have let her *sarcasm*.) I had no sympathy.
But she was mad. She'd miss out. And it was my fault.
