Potty Talk

We have had a strange recurring problem at school all year long. To put it as delicately as possible, it seems the parents of one of our kids have been a bit remiss in the potty training department. Once a week or so, a surprise of some form is left to be found by the next visitor to the boy’s’ bathroom and for the life of us, we can’’t figure out who is doing it. If a teacher or older student makes the discovery, they just sigh and flush or go get the mop. If a younger student is so unlucky, there are usually loud shrieks of “Eeeeewww!” and the drama spreads like wildfire through the school. The topic was even raised by kids at our last school assembly at which point I scanned the crowd looking for signs of embarrassment or shame. There were none. It seems our culprit is either: 1) oblivious to his crimes, 2) lacking in empathy or social consciousness and therefore not concerned about the outrage, or 3) purposely leaving his little turd droppings around to annoy others. In this third case, it is probably better just to ignore him.

Today I was watching my favorite news guy and one of his segments dealt with the latest outrageous statement from Rush Limbaugh. As his panel of guests began to discuss it, I sighed and clicked on the next video in the playlist – flushing away the rest of that discussion, so to speak. When it comes to Rush, it seems to me that he is either: 1) oblivious to his crimes, 2) lacking in empathy or social consciousness and therefore not concerned about the outrage, or 3) purposely leaving his little turd droppings around to annoy others. In this third case, it is probably better just to ignore him.
