Joke of the Week
Know-It-All Nancy Says:
Why don't kids just do what teachers tell them to do? There is this kid in my class that never pays attention or listen. My teacher always asks that person why they are doing it. They simply respond with an '' I don't like school." What do I do? Should I be mean to that kid like everyone else is, or should I be nice?
You should be nice to that person. There is probably something going on in that person's life, and you just never know. But don't do what they are doing, either. You don't want to get in trouble. I hope that this helps you!
