A Texas teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his
boots.

He asked for help and she could see why. Even with her pulling and him
pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on. By the time they
got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

She almost cried when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the
wrong feet." She looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any
easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed
to keep her cool as, together, they worked to get the boots back on,
this time on the right feet.

He then announced, "These aren't my boots." She bit her tongue, rather
than get right in his face and scream, "Why didn't you say so?", like
she wanted to.

Once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his
little feet. No sooner had they gotten the boots off when he said,
"They're my brother's boots. My Mom made me wear 'em."

Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But she mustered up
what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet
again.

Helping him into his coat, she asked, "Now, where are your mittens?"
He said, "I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots."

She will be eligible for parole in three years.

Al V,
I suspect there a lot of primary teachers and parents of young children who can empathize with the Texas teacher.
Our daughter was expressing similar thoughts just yesterday.
Thanks for posting this bit of wry humor.
