An article in one of the student newspapers at a high school in our city spoke of the anger students have when (gasp) teachers park in the student lot. Can you imagine the GALL of these teachers, parking their cars where all the special snowflakes park? The article was picked up my our local newspaper's blog, and the commenting commenced. I don't know if your local paper has a blog, but mine has had one for about a year now, and it's one of my greatest sources of entertainment. The comments are fabulous! We've got a committed (or they should be) cast of characters, most of them curmudgeonly conservatives, and they have an opinion on every topic. Believe me, every freaking topic brings out the loony in these folks. It's like an unedited letters to the editor column gone wild. I love it. I really do. I also participate, but not on every topic. Strange, but there are some topic on which I have no opinion at all. I know!
So, the commenting is pretty much commonplace until some special snowflake comes on. He's articulate, has a good vocabulary, but his arguments... well they are fairly specious. You see, SS thinks that students should have equal rights with teachers. That students deserve the same treatment as teachers and staff.
The fact of the matter is, there should not be designated areas for students vs. staff. Instead, it should be like most parking lots in the world - “first come, first served.”Stumble It! JBlog Me
