Angering one cashier at a time

I have a big problem with the truth. No, it's not what you think. I'm too honest. If you ask me if you "look like a whale" in that new dress, you'd better get back in the tank and swim to the other side.

So, it's best to stop as soon as I mention your lovely new ...

Recently, a Newton County teacher shared with me a column authored by Ron Clark, founder of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta. Entitled "What teachers really want to tell parents," I found it to ring all too familiar as to the sentiments I've heard, in different locations, over the last decade. It's worth airing because, like some things, there are kernels of wisdom in it. So much so that if we don't pay attention, the nation will not reverse the "average" tenure of new teachers - just 4.5 years.
