Running into an old colleague of mine, I heard that a student from my old work, where I had been a teacher, got into some trouble recently. He asked to be excused from class to use the restroom, and, when released, went next door to an unlocked classroom. Inside, he stole the teacher's purse, containing her credit cards, some cash, and her keys. Most importantly, he stole the "A" key, a key that can open up any door in the entire school, making it highly valuable. Now, it's worth about $30,000 to replace every lock in the school, so this is one expensive key.
Inspired by this post, I am creating the Bad Parents of the Month award. Stay tuned each month to learn about the horrible things that parents around the world do to their children! And if you hear about something, email me the story so that they can be humiliated on my blog!
