Memo to Manager Dude

To: Manager Dude
From: Me
Re: Your absolutely bizarre requests

Dude, seriously, you have GOT to be kidding.

Last year, at our school, we had a teacher who did not do his work. He did not finish all of his special education paperwork before he left. As you know, being a sped professional yourself, this causes frustration and anger for those left behind, as that paperwork, by law, must be finished on time. Of course, this now falls to us.

And, according to the edict handed down from on high a week ago, we must all now have ALL paperwork that is either overdue, or due in October and November FINISHED by November 1. We have to get all our paperwork done a month early. This is causing more anger and frustration, as we are all now stretched to the limit, barely functioning as teachers, unable to plan for lessons because we are having about a quadruple amount of meetings than we are used to. This is happening all over the district.

So you email me, and say that, because some dude at my school didn't do his paperwork, I have to go to the high school where the student is, and do it?

Dude, are you high?

Let me know,



  1. Bazookas. And slinkys.

  2. Oh...and Vicks VapoRub.

    Gotta have the Vicks.

  3. PS: suggestion for tomorrow's post...for NaBloWriMo

    Get your kitchen timer, set it for two minutes, and write about a topic I give you.

    The topic I give you?


    Don't cheat and prepare a post ahead of time. Just take the timer, set it for two minutes and start free-associating about caterpillars.
