He Doesn't Teach Anymore

When you are angry, or get angry, the cure for this is not alcohol. Keep that in mind and let me say it again: Alcohol does not solve problems associated with anger.

Example: A teacher in a nearby school district who had been bothered by some teens in his home town. He thought he recognized their car, so when it passed his house, he stopped it. His courage came, of course, from a bottle of whatever he was drinking. Having stopped the car, he then let the kids know what he thought of them.

To make up for it, he invited them in for a few beers and possibly some vodka. Not a terribly smart thing for the average citizen; certainly dumber than a rock for someone who is currently employed as a teacher. The kids declined and just wanted to go on their way and be left alone.

The teacher (about to be an ex-teacher, as his case just came up) started acting like a fool and clucking like a chicken. That, of course, will not affect the disposition of his case or his ability to instruct children in the finer things of life. It will, however, instruct the children in how they might act when they pass his house.

Cluck, and ye shalt be clucked unto. Cluck unto others as ye would have them cluck unto you. Wave your arms and hop about your front yard and it shall be done by legions of children. Then, after the haze of the night before wears off, there’s your photo in the newspaper with a complete account of what you did. Bummer.
