This is the time of year where items like the good stapler and self-adhesive envelopes are a hot commodity. For my non-teacher friends, that means it’s the end of the year and everybody is doing report cards.
I was working on mine when a dear colleague announced to me that she was a thief who needed to borrow my stapler. I just started laughing, because she was the kindest thief I had ever met. She asked permission, apologized for stealing and then promised to bring back the item as soon as she finished putting together her summer math packets.
I couldn’t let someone “steal” without going to jail though. So, I stopped writing comments on report cards and did this instead.
It told my friend all about jail and the terrible fate that awaits her for the crime of “stealing” a stapler.
