This was shared with me by a teacher who had reprimanded a third grader for hitting another child. She had him write a letter of apology.
I'm sorry for touching you. I could made another choice. 1 count backward from 10 2 think of something plesant. 3 Drain my anger out 4 find somthing to punch. But for my disison was I diserve a punishm ent, and this is my diserve missing resses. I know what I did is wrong and I hope I choose something else to do if I'm angry. You are a great friend and I respect that . I know you will be a great leader and make the world a better place. Follow good deeds and orders and you will be a great leader. I bileve in you, forever.
Wish you luck!
PS Hope you find this note exepible for the apoligey.
After those hand blow dryers were installed in the student bathrooms to cut down on costs - and mess - one little girl came out of the bathroom and told the aftercare workers -
"Do you know they charge a quarter for a paper towel now?"
If she put a quarter in she'd be very disappointed. It's empty. It's the Kotex machine that hasn't been used in years due to grade level changes in the school. It's still there on the wall though. Much easier that way. Then no one has to patch the wall, or paint it for that matter. Just a piece of metallic history.
