Let the discipline begin

. A good education story.... let the discipline begin ... A former Sergeant, having served his time with the Marine Corps, took a new job as a school teacher, but just before the school year started he injured his back. He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable. On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and decided to see how tough he really was, before trying any pranks. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and promptly stapled the tie to his chest. .....Dead silence... He had no trouble with discipline that year. SEMPER FI!!

OK, few of these things make me laugh out loud. This one did.

That one made me laugh out loud, and this is the third time I read it. I love it.

Judging from some of my Marine buddies, the story might've been short in its original version, ie just what appears above!

Reminds me of a t-shirt that I saw while on vacation. " YOU CAN'T SCARE ME...I'M A TEACHER! " Yes I'm a teacher and yes I bought the t-shirt!

"The Weather Channel" (same stuff as on the internet)
"Yelp!" (find local places, like restaurants, stores, car repair, with ratings from users)
"Movies" (rotten tomatoes ratings plus listings of all show times for local theaters, with phone numbers and directions and ability to buy a ticket)
"Lookout" (screens all apps for viruses, tracks your phone, allows you to send an "screech" to your phone from any computer to locate it, allows you to disable phone remotely if lost/stolen for security)
"Color Flashlight" (not a strong beam but when we eat in dimly lit restaurants and can't read the menu, we use this all the time)
"DirectTV" (can remotely set to record programs at home)
"Camp and RV" by Allstays (can search for nearby places to stay by category: KOA, national park, county park, dry camp, Walmar, etc. Very useful to us RVer's).

Informative for those who have smart phones, but not very humorous.

A true case of OLD Age and Treachery, plus clear thought.
