BOOBIES

My worse boss had to be the a principal at the first school I worked
at after earning my teaching degree. I was thrilled to be teaching a
fourth grade class, but I soon learned that my principal no longer
cared about the students. He was about to retire so he was almost
never at work, but when he was there he was always looking for some
way to correct you – especially the women as he was sexist. On more
than one occasion he would walk into my class, pull out my desk
drawers, and then sit in my chair with his feet propped up on the
drawers. Then he would see something ‘wrong’ and he would proceed to
interupt my class to correct me. He lectured me that I needed to play
classical music in class, I needed different classical music, the
arrangement of the desks were wrong, my class was too crowded (I had
32 students but 30 desks, and I couldn’t get another desk.) the room
was too hot, too cold, not enough posters on the wall, etc. It was a
nightmare. One day, however, really took the cake. I had discovered
that my kids really needed some work on math skills before the end of
the year tests, so we were working hard on that. One day, the
principal comes in with this big smile on his face. He announces
loudly to me so that the kids can hear, “Good news! I just found out
the students can use calculators on the math and science portions of
the test, so it doesn’t matter if they can’t add or subtract properly.
Forget going over multiplication and just teach them how to use a
calculator.” I was stunned.

  3. Did you talk to the other teachers about his behavior, document it, and go to his higher up about it? Did you stand up for yourself or just take his bullshit?

  5. the boss was set to retire, according to the story. by the time anything would’ve happened, it would’ve been a moot point. i’ve known a few people who worked in school districts. dealing with problems, no matter how well documented, is a painfully slow process.

  7. If he had any issues he should have taken you aside to discuss them and not in front of the class. I don’t see how they could have 32 kids with 30 desks. Where did the other 2 sit? Were they sharing seats with someone else? O_o

  9. You should have called his superior and demanded an IMMEDIATE order banning him from invading your classroom.

    As for the math stuff, I’d have laughed in his face when he said that and then kicked him out of my classroom. Then I’d have told the kids “Ignore the maroon, you actually do need to know this stuff.”

  11. I reckon it sounds as though teaching is perhaps not for you, story teller. The principal was likely trying to find a polite way of saying so, but could not find the proper words. What he should have done is taken you aside and explained that it would be best if you simply found a good husband and began keeping his house and bearing his children. No more of this “career” business. You ladies shouldn’t have to worry your pretty little heads about these things.

  14. someone on May 1st, 2013
  15. Someone, perhaps Les Moore believed this school took place on an island and the principal was a survivor of a shipwreck. I am laughing!

  37. In Les’s defense, Bugs Bunny used to call people “maroons” all the time.

  38. Barbara on May 1st, 2013
  39. thats kinda a weak defense…isnt it?

  40. someone on May 1st, 2013
  41. Definition of MAROON (1)

    capitalized : a fugitive black slave of the West Indies and Guiana in the 17th and 18th centuries; also : a descendant of such a slave

    Yep: Les is racist.

  42. t-rex on May 1st, 2013
  43. Really, none of you read Les’ post and heard Bugs Bunny’s voice in your head?

    Someone, since moron and maroon are two different words, who’s really the dumbass?

    I don’t know Les, but here’s the skinny from the urban dictionary:

    Maroon: Term made famous by Bugs Bunny meaning a pushover, or one easily fooled. A dope, fool, idiot, or nincompoop. Unbelievably stupid person.

    It’s entirely possible that the Loony Tunes folks were not very… sensitive, and there are certainly some of the old cartoons that you won’t ever see on TV again due to negative stereotypes, but all Les was doing was quoting Bugs…

  44. patricko on May 1st, 2013
  45. Definitely a bad boss. But c’mon, OP, document and take it to the school board or something?

  46. Zephyr Skunk on May 1st, 2013
  47. I know he was quoting the Bugs-Bun, however, Maroon is a racially charged term. Loony Toons also had cartoons in black face paint, and we don’t condone that behaviour nowadays.

  48. t-rex on May 1st, 2013
  49. well i certainly didn’t hear bugs bunny voice when i read les’ post….and that was my point entirely, those are two different words, you fukkin’ dumbass…
    …so let’s just assume that les DID use the word maroon on purpose and in the fashion of bugs bunny…its still an incorrect usage of the word as, even though defined by the urban dictionary (really, wanna use this as proof of anything?) as a term made famous by bugs bunny, still isnt the right word to read…given the context of les’ post, i had no reason to read it in bug’s voice…

    idiots…the whole read-in-bugs-bunnys-voice lot of you.

  50. someone on May 1st, 2013
  51. I also did not read Les Moore’s post in the voice of Bugs Bunny but recognized the intention almost shortly afterward. However, what sprang quickly to mind is that Bug’s use of the term was always, “What a maroon!” His use of maroon, though, is the comical mispronunciation of moron. So, as someone mentioned, without the context, it is very easily mistaken as Les using the wrong word accidentally. Better to not determine who the dumbass is until we know who the smartass was.

    Good evening, folks. I have finals to grade and cannot be bothered any longer with this dried up drivel.

  52. Leo on May 1st, 2013
  53. T-Rex, it’s kind of an obscure connotation and I don’t think it really quite has the history of the n word. I have never heard it used in a racial context, but always to describe an idiot. Do you correct people when they say they got “gyped”?

  54. The Oxford Comma on May 1st, 2013
  55. I dunno, but I always assumed Bugs Bunny was just mispronouncing “moron.” He did tend to mangle words at times. And all of those characters used some pretty nonsensical stuff when it came to name-calling, insults and ‘swearing.’

  56. Zephyr Skunk on May 1st, 2013
  57. For work I do. I ask the person what they mean by the term. I am required to ask clarifying questions. My favorite clarifying question:

    “What do you mean your exboyfriend be clownin’? What do you mean by clownin’?”

    It’s written in the SOPs that I do that.
