I Think Someone Confused Confucius

If there is one perk to staff training I know it MUST be lunch. Thirty minutes of sweet freedom to eat without standing guard over twenty people with no table manners. This afternoon I struck up a conversation with one of those "lucky" in-staff-training-today teachers as she ate her chinese takeout in the lounge.

We were on our way out the door when she cracked open her fortune cookie...

I believe the fortune swiftly drifted to the tiles as both our mouths fell to the floor in ridiculous disbelief.  Are you kidding me?  Who does this fortune think it is and who does it think it's talking to?

I mean seriously?

Could any of us work ANY harder?

She and I started laughing and shaking our heads. Then I begged her to let me take a picture of it.

She sighed and told me she didn't want anything to do with it... I could keep the darn fortune.

I promptly stuffed it in my back pocket, ran to my office, snapped it's picture, grabbed the packing tape from the librarian, and taped it right smack in the middle of my office door.

Rock that, Confucius.
