Bonobo62: How the hell did they get caught? Are kids these days announcing their pranks and trying to take credit? I've done much worse than just a few thousand crickets, but never let anyone pin any of it on me.
HotWingAgenda: You don't actually get graded for kindergarten. That's why 1st grade starts with... wait for it.... 1st f*cking grade. This lady is saying her son got held back.
Luminiferous Aether: Douchebags, generations of them, through and through. Parents, your little snowflakes perpetrated a prank that is costly and time-consuming to deal with. You should've raised your crotchfruit to be more creative and less destructive, and having your kiddies not walk is the perfect punishment for them, and you.
Bonobo62: Tsar_Bomba1: Bonobo62: How the hell did they get caught? Are kids these days announcing their pranks and trying to take credit? I've done much worse than just a few thousand crickets, but never let anyone pin any of it on me.Dad was a high school principal for 25 years. Anytime someone did a stunt or some vandalism they always got caught. I can remember one time where a bunch of kids spray painted the back of the school. Made the news and everything. I asked him if they had caught the people who did it. He said "Just give it a week." Sure enough they caught them all and they ended up reimbursing the school system for the cleanup. I asked him at the end of the school year how did they ever figure out who did it?He said it was actually quite simple..."They talked."Kids can't keep their mouths shut. They always have to brag to their friends "Yeah... I'm the one who did that!" And at some point they'ren going to run their mouth to the wrong person and then you've got them. Only way to truly succeed is for you to never ever admit it - and that's almost impossible for a kid to do.Those who do keep quiet become legends. Most kids who pull stunts don't make it into that catagory...shiat, I'm still afraid to cop to some of the things I did, almost thirty years later. What's the statute of limitations on setting the lockers on fire?
tuna fingers: Thousands of dollars? Um... No. I hire a pest control guy for the shopping center I manage and I get him to spray emergency flare-ups of cockroaches for 100 bucks a pop. To perform routine maintenance on a half million s.f. of retail space costs $275.
HotWingAgenda: That is just embarrassing.
gregscott: Actually crickets can be fairly destructive. They can do damage to fabric, leather and fur and are especially destructive to silk and woolens. I think they may also eat paper. On the other hand, they don't usually survive long indoors.
Mock26: They got caught, so they should be punished. Hopefully the class behind them will learn from this mistake and not get caught when they pull off their stupid senior prank.
almandot: I think my senior year people drove trucks onto the quad to hook up and rip out a bunch of the vending machines..And they put crap all over the baseball field that may or may not have killed it and the baseball coach was fuming more than anyone.
