six word Saturday



Actions have consequences - like or not.

This week, a lot of the students are taking the easy route. They are failing to show up at sports practices - and then are surprised that they cannot play the game. They feel they are prepared so the coach has a stupid rule.

Or they show up 20 minutes into the game and have to sit on the bench - and that isn't fair either.

Or they refuse to do any work in a class and want the failing grade changed to a passing grade before report cards come out - whether the teacher has time or not. (And we all know who has to come up with same extra work.)

Interesting week.

I wonder if that 'work ethic' comes from their home life and they can get away with that sort of thing?

Have a good weekend

"Interesting" is one word for it. I know that frustration first hand; am glad it's all behind me now.

Amen. Too often people act without thinking or caring. Sad, because then offers suffer.
