Works Every Time

A former gunnery sergeant in the Marine Corps took a new job as a high school teacher. Just before the school year started, he injured his back. He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and was not noticeable. 180px-USMC-E7.svg

On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart-aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew the students would be testing his discipline in the classroom.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom wearing a crisp shirt and tie, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.

There was dead silence…the rest of the year went very smoothly.


Thanks, John
