The phone rings after less than an hour of the school day and my heart sinks when I see the caller ID.
“This is Tommy’s VP.”
“Uh-oh. What happened?”
“I don’t think suspension encouraged Tommy to change his behavior any. Instead of bumping into the girls, today he is grabbing their bottoms to get their attention.”
“Oh that’s so rude, I am so sorry.”
“I think that the teachers, the school officers and I are going to stay by his side for a while.”
“Umm, ok.” That sounds kinda stigmatizing and embarrassing.
“Maybe you could explain to him that girls don’t like their bottoms being grabbed.”
“Yes sir, we’ll talk about this.”
Is it only Wednesday?
