This job is going to wreck-a-mendation me.

Usually, I don't have to do letters of recommendations for students because I have a solid method for discouraging such actions. Still, some get through my little blockade, so I have to endure headaches from time to time.

Take my latest incident, for example. She knew that I would not send off her letter until she provided me with a stamped, self-addressed envelope. With her deadline approaching, I harassed and harassed her to get such an envelope to me. I told her that the letter is sitting on my desk and it will stay there until she does what is required of her. It's my tough love approach. You reap what you sow.

Well, she finally brought one. It had the address and a stamp... a 24 cent stamp.

That's great... if I was sending a postcard of recommendation.

Dear To Whom It May Concern,

The weather has been perfect all weekend. I hate to see Monday come because it will be back to the grindstone. =(

Wish you were here,

P.S. Please admit Britonee to your school! =)
