One of my favorite School Admin dickheads who think certain things are more important than they really are involves Lance Armstrong. IIRC he was a senior in high school and was asked to train with the Junior National Team somewhere but the school admin dick said if you go you'll miss too much school and we won't let you graduate. So Lance and his mom get on the phone and start calling around and find a school that says 'no problem, be glad to have you'. So Lance transfers schools goes on to become world famous and absolutely refuses to have anything to do with his previous high school.

tl;dr Petty High School Admins are petty.

I would be happy to superglue the locks for them...that way nobody will be there after hours.

Seriously, I don't actually have a problem with how the kids handled the suspension. It was very adult of them. A kid faced with punishment reacts like it's the worst thing in the world and constrains what he can and can't do--not always, but more or less.

The big distinction between a kid and an adult is that an adult is like Dorothy and the gang after they get to Oz and see the man behind the curtain. An adult can look at a punishment, can evaluate how much power you have and what you can actually do or not do--what the price is for what he wants to do--and then decide for himself whether he's going to do it anyway. And then an adult can and will decide for himself whether he's going to cooperate with punishment, too.

The perfect "adult" moment---Dumbledore when Cornelius Fudge orders his arrest, "I thought we might hit this little snag. You appear to think I'm going to come along quietly."

I see going in and cleaning the post-its back up as an act of defiance. They didn't wait around to be ordered about what to do. It was their show. They handled it their way---start to finish. Administration didn't get to decide whether to order them to clean it up or to shame them by making a big deal about how the janitorial staff who let them in was having to do so much extra work cleaning it all up. And it didn't get to count up the hours it took to clean it up and make an inflated count of the alleged "costs of cleanup."

I wonder if we'll ever get a sense of humor back?

Sooo....the janitors who unlocked the doors and let them in after-hours, they're off the hook?

hobblekitty: I graduated from this high school back in 1995.

CSB time!

The year I graduated, during the school-wide "moving up day" ceremony, someone opened a bag filled with 3000 crickets in the darkened auditorium where the entire school was gathered. I was sitting sort of in the middle of the senior section, and all of the sudden I started to see the people in the rows in front of me jumping out of their seats, row by row like a wave. Then the underclassmen at either side of the auditorium started jumping out of their seats. Soon the entire auditorium was up out of their seats, jumping around, waving their hands and shrieking as they tried to brush the crickets off themselves. The teachers and staff were trying to usher everyone out of the auditorium and get them back to their homerooms, and as folks poured out of the auditorium the crickets did too, there was live crickets, dead crickets, cricket slime every where.

After the ruckus died down we were able to go back to the auditorium to collect our yearbooks (they had to let us back in through one of the back stage doors). When all was said and done, at least 1 person was arrested and a few kids were banned from graduation over the stunt. Now, THAT is a senior prank. It made front page news in the same newspaper from TFA, above the fold (because back then the internet was young). Must have been a slow news day.

CSB indeed. I enjoyed the story.

That's actually a pretty cute prank. I bet the kids who did it had more fun that night than they would have at the senior picnic from which they were banned.

"The 29 who papered the school in Post-Its were suspended for being in school after hours, according to two students in the group."

Good call. If the students had been caught in the school at nigh (when school is closed) earlier in the year they probably would have received the exact same punishment. The fact that i twas for a "senior prank" does not make them exempt.

As for the penis, their punishment has nothing to do with it.

Suspension.

If you are a school official of some kind, it's a perfect way to compensate for your tiny penis, receding hairline or any other general feelings of incompetence.

There should be an actual website dedicated to the brainless antics of these overpaid seat-warmers. Sorta like "people of Walmart" where they are endlessly ridiculed.

Because they deserve it.
