The Middle Hobo Teacher

Today my students stapled their written responses to their scantrons before turning them in. I could stop right there and just let you finish it, but I have some thoughts.

What is wrong with these kids?! Do they think that the machine stops, removes the staples and then grades? I pass those things through a SCAN-TRON machine, not Pee-Wee Herman's breakfast machine.

I swear that these guys don't understand the concept of "the middle man". They throw their clothes on the floor and, WA-LA--they magically end up clean and in their dresser. I bet they think their pencils come from giant pencil sharpeners that you stick logs into.

It was really my fault. I mean I did leave the stapler out. If Poe taught us anything from "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," it's that you don't give orangutans razors.
