1. While buying donuts for my 2nd period class on the way to school, I have to run outside to my car with at least ten people in line behind me to get a dollar bill because I'm 23 cents short on my total.
2. Because the lady at Dunkin Donuts took an atypically long time, and because the Baltimore traffic was abnormally bad because of the snow, I got in at 8:05 instead of 7:55.
3. A student had parked in my spot.
4. I see three other students get out of separate cars in the teacher parking lot. Someone isn't doing their job in making sure it doesn't happen.
5. I confront one of the students, asking her why she thinks the rules don't apply to her. She says that if teachers want their spots, they should get to school early. She's a bitch. I don't know who she is and she's lost in the crowd.
6. I talk to our "wecurity supervisor" about the problem. He says that they're only out there until 7:50 checking on the cars. I tell him then there's a problem with the system, someone needs to be out there longer. His reply? "I ain't standing out there in the snow." I tell him that someone needs to. Ugh.
7. For my lunch period, I run up to Towson to get my book order of twenty copies of Romeo and Juliet. Only six are in. This pisses me off beyond belief. I'm even rude to the cashier. On the way back, I'm five minutes late to my class, and no one backs me up and covers in there. I guess on the good side, I wasn't caught.
8. The kids, it being Friday afternoon and all, are abnormally loud. I keep having to get up and move people around.
9. I discover that three of my seniors did not turn in their baseball uniforms last year, meaning I have three less jerseys than I thought I would have.
But it all went away after three hours on the baseball field. What a great group of kids and a great group of baseball players.
Now I'm off to drink beer and celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Tomorrow, a much needed day of rest.
