Talk about trust... or stupidity

Overheard on the streets of New York:

Chick #1: I really think this is the way to go.
Chick #2: I told you, I'm not ready. They don't even know me. I don't want them to always think of me as "that lesbian girl." I said no.
Chick #1: I meant Eighth Avenue.

Girl: You know, sometimes I just feel like breaking down and crying.

Guy: Wanna get some pizza?
Girl: Seriously, life can be so hard sometimes, I really can't take it anymore.
Guy: Have you considered suicide?
Girl: Fuck you!
Guy: Well seriously, you need to stop complaining about life or just kill yourself and get it over with.

Guy: Wanna get some pizza?

Kids paid teacher cash to skip gym class

A gym teacher at a Florida middle school may have found an unusual way to supplement his income. Officials in Pensacola said he let kids skip his class if they paid him $1 a day.

Authorities said Terence Braxton took the payments between September and December, and that he may have collected thousands of dollars. Escambia County School District spokesman Ronnie Arnold said the principal of Ward Middle School learned of the scheme from a parent and began an investigation in December.

The principal then contacted authorities and placed Braxton on administrative leave. Braxton then resigned. Braxton was being sought on bribery charges. He turned himself in Thursday. Those charges accuse him of taking about $230 from a half dozen students.

But a sheriff's spokesman said his take from sixth- to eighth-grade boys and girls was probably much greater.

Detectives had been looking for Braxton after he apparently left the area. After his resignation, Braxton taught some classes as a substitute teacher at the Atmore School District in Alabama.

Win-win situation. Kids get to skip class, he gets paid. Not necessarily the typical lesson you learn at school. Nevertheless, these kids learned about life- real life. Money still makes the world go 'round. Kinda sad what money can make you 'stoop' down to. Article here.

Principal sends porn email to faculty...?

A principal who was suspended after being accused of using school computers to send pornographic pictures is causing mixed emotions in north Georgia.

Pictures of nude women were sent to five faculty members at
Union County High School in an e-mail with the caption, "It is large breast appreciation week once again." The porn was sent to colleagues on school computers during school hours.

School Superintendent Tommy Stevens said the pictures were sent by Union County High School Principal Ed Rohrbaugh. The school board suspended the Rohrbaugh for five days, but he is now back from suspension. After the incident, the school board renewed his contract for next year.

"He didn't try to cover it up. Didn't deny it. He was very forthright about it. And he knows he made a mistake," Superintendent Tommy Stevens said. The superintendent said Rohrbaugh has a spotless record, has been punished and has apologized.

Critics of Rohrbaugh said it's hard to teach students to stay away from pornography when the principal is passing it around in e-mails. "The principal of Union County High School essentially destroyed his credibility at the school with the students," Carter said. The board also clarified its policies to indicate school computers are only supposed to be used for school related issues.

Wow, dude. I mean it’s one thing to send an inappropriate email- but come one. He sent pictures of nude women? Come on. As a principal you’ve got to have the common sense to reason that sending out naked pictures is probably not the smartest decision. What a dip-shit. Article here.
