Like the title states...I am still here to write another post!!
The infamous 'Emo" kid showed up today. Apparently stealing 10.00 headphones is not going to put you in the pokey. I mean if the knife and baseball bat incidents didn't do it- I wasn't too confident in the headphones being the situation to put him away. ( However, there were many a promises from others that it would).
He was here today and he was NOT in a good mood. He actually left in the middle of the day after he told us to "F%^& off and he was getting the hell out of here". Well - I should have known. I mean we WERE making a lot of demands on him and the other kids. We actually asked them to watch a movie *gasp* I KNOW!! - complete child abuse, right?
I just have to say that we NEVER watch movies and in fact this was our first all year. Apparently, he had already watched it before and he doesn't "do" movies ( although I know he does!). I went out had my talk with him..had another stare down and then we locked him out of the classroom. HEY, don't judge! If he didn't want to be in the classroom - then he was NOT going to be in the classroom.
The straw that broke the camel's back was when we reminded him that he could not sit with the kids on level 4 and 5 at lunch. He promptly replied back "F%^& that ( he loves that word - well me too, but whatevs) and stayed in his seat. The other boys looked at me expectantly - and I said "Boys take your game and go into the classroom" in my I mean business tone of voice. So they all got up and then EMO said "Fine, I'll move". So he got up and walked away from the table turned around to me and said " F*@& this ( see, I told ya - he really likes it) I'm getting the hell outta here. I'm calling my mom!"
So I said " Just remember to hit 9 - to get an outside line!" Hee
He goes in the room goes to the phone - stands there a minute - turns around and comes back and says" I don't know my phone number". Priceless.....
Don't worry I got his number, he talked to his mom, he got picked up and then I called his truancy officer and his P.O. We will see if he shows tomorrow:)
