Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Thursday, December 15


As a new headmaster, Mr. Mitchell was checking over his school on the first day. On passing the stockroom, he was startled to see the door wide open and teachers bustling in and out, carrying off books and supplies in preparation for the arrival of students the next day. His previous school had used a checkout system only slightly less elaborate than that at Fort Knox.

Cautiously, he asked the school's long-time janitor: "Do you think it wise to keep the stockroom unlocked and to let the teachers just take things without requisitions?"

The janitor looked at him gravely: "We trust them with the children, don't we?"
