Overheard from my office...kind of

As some of my older, pre-summer readers may remember, I used to frequently post about ridiculous, funny, or just plain stupid things I hear kids say outside of my office. Now that school is back in session...this feature is officially BACK. Sadly, my new office is tucked way back in a corner of the guidance office, so I'm no longer in the fray - I just can't hear kids talking like I used to. Which, to be honest, is a-okay with me. But don't worry, I'm constantly up and walking around, to the printer/copier or the bathroom or wherever, so I should still hear those little gems we're all so fond of.

Case in point:

A female high school student, staring at the printer as it is printing, to me as I walk by: "Do you know where the printer is?"
Me: "Umm, yes, you're looking at it."

Children are our future, people.
