In Display Case of Emergency

Just before the break I had mentioned display cases. Well, it seems that there are some new issues—the staff is failing to lock them back up when done decorating them. An e-mail from Hammer revealed the problem and how it has escalated:

Usually the offenses have been nothing more then trash being deposited in the cases, but yesterday morning we came across a freshman stuck in the case by the natatorium. He could not exit his “cage” due to the pandemonium by the student body directly in front of the glass.

Now, I’m fully aware that bullying is a serious issue and I shouldn’t be laughing at this, but I was. With this image of a cage of glass I couldn’t help but to imagine our students to be like puppies at a pet store. That way we teachers could get a good look at them before we took them back to our classrooms to teach.

That one looks like a biter.

Look at that mangy coat.

She does nothing but sleep.

We’ll have to get that one fixed.

The more I think about it, though, it would be just as wrong for me to assume he was bullied and didn’t climb in there on his own jack-a-ninny volition. At this very moment, I could rattle off 23 students of mine who would have gotten in there for the attention. So let’s just say that it isn’t wrong to laugh until it is confirmed that he was picked on.
