Thursday greetin’s, GN!

Clearly that’s not Rudolph in the thread pic; “reindeer games” would seem to be contraindicated with those two.

Sven --

Sorry you’re still illin’; get better, please. ๐Ÿ˜‰

dv8 --

Hope you got some rest.

JimCo’s keeping me hopping again this week; sure hope something leads to an L.A. trip (or two) later this year.

I think it’s nice that Pelosi had all of those commemorative impeachment pens -- embossed with her signature -- to hand out yesterday. Wonder who paid for them… ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

BBL.

Hi, Sven --

Probably more accurate to say that opportunity is booming; all we can do is play the percentages.

My thought for the day: “…We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed…”

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Busy morning, so far. Lots of data to cross-check and correct and reports to review. I’ll have to review the reports from one of my teachers after she makes the corrections I gave her yesterday afternoon. I can’t trust her to make the corrections properly. She probably won’t get them to me until the end of the day.

Sad. It’s the 21st Century, Paddy. Believe all women.

Hi, Paddy!

I canโ€™t trust her to make the corrections properly.

Bah! But sure, all teachers are underpaid.

*Eyeroll*

Too bad unions, the NEA, etc. are so against a meritocracy in teaching.

The few truly excellent teachers I had K-12 made a yuuuuge difference in what I learned from them…plus, they provided an impetus for me to seek out even more knowledge in particular disciplines.

Not to mention the way inept and/or lazy teachers made me dread certain subjects or classes. ๐Ÿ™

Fortunately, I no longer work for a union school, but last year, when discussing salary increases, my boss couldn’t accept the idea that in any given position, some people should make more than others. I advocated for a salary increase for someone we were actively recruiting, and no change for the person whose work needs constant checking.

Kind of an obvious idea, but still amusing to me:

so obvious once you see it. But no Democrat thought of it, because the left can’t meme.
