Pull Up Your Huggies Boy

This story infuriated me not for the actions of the teacher but for the attitude of the parents. The parent is disgusted by the bagged crap but not the fact that it was his son that left a moist fudge bar on the floor. If your precious little snowflake can't use the toilet then send him to school with some huggies or don't send him at all. NONE of us in the classroom need to find his steaming present on the floor which was obviously left then neglected. I had this happen to me a couple of times. In a kindergarten class a kid basically painted the walls of the bathroom with his own brown paint and it was impossible to convince the parents that doing such art was a cry for help. The pictures luckily convinced a social worker that something was wrong in that household. The second time it was a junior high kid who would crap his pantaloons and shake it out down his leg. First we caught the smell and then saw the melted chocolate bar on the floor which wasn't a MELTED CHOCOLATE BAR! You never saw a teacher and a group of kids crawl out a first floor window faster in your whole life. Sorry for being insensitive but I draw the line at SHIT ON MY CLASSROOM FLOOR. I am just funny that way. I would love to be a fly on the wall in the staffroom when they argued about who got the honor of having poopy pants in their room. Great, now anytime I want to just get rid of a kid I will be tempted to 'plant' some evidence against him or her. I prefer to use St Bernard droppings for their size and uniform consistancy.

"YAKIMA, Wash. -- A 5-year-old student at Apple Valley Elementary in Yakima headed home on the bus with more than books in his backpack. Inside was a smelly package his father never imagined he'd be toting around. "I'm still kind of in shock over this, because why would somebody do this? It's disgusting!" said the boy's father, who wished to be identified only as "Jason." Jason says his son's kindergarten teacher had bagged up a piece of human feces and stuck it in his son's backpack. His wife found the stinky mess."She found a clear plastic bag with a piece of fecal matter wrapped up in a brown paper towel with the note on it," he said. The note read, "This little turd was on the floor in my room." Jason says his son's teacher, Mrs. Graham, called last Friday and said her classroom was "stinky." She asked if the boy could have had an accident. Jason acknowledged the possibility, as his son had had a couple of accidents in the classroom in the past. He told Mrs. Graham there were extra clothes in his backpack. Jason never imagined the teacher would send his son home with evidence of his accident. After his wife found the bagged mess, Jason e-mailed school officials. Days later, he received a response apologizing for the delay in dealing with the issue. On Tuesday, he was still waiting for a chance to speak to school officials about the incident. "What would have happened if it had stayed in there and she hadn't checked the bag? And other kids were playing on the bus and it got out? And it's a very hazardous thing. It's disgusting!" The school's superintendent said the boy's teacher and the school principal are being questioned. School officials said they'll meet with Jason and his wife next week. In the meantime, Jason wants his son placed in a different teacher's classroom for the remainder of the school year."

I ... don't know what to say about that.

So I won't.

Always a wise course of action...Mom always said that if you don't have something nice to say about a kid pooping on the classroom floor then you shouldn't say anything at all.
