My Suspension

What could I, a sixty-two year old student, do to get suspended ? I entered an "Unautorized" zone at school..
The unautorized zone was the janitor's garage where my toolbox was being hidden. It was my damaged toolbox that the trucking company didn't pick up after it delivered my replacement toolbox. I called the accounting office of the maker of the $5,000 toolbox and they told me I could do what I wanted with the toolbox. I was willing to donate it to the school, but the Goofball (see last posting) tried to confiscate it. At lunch time, so I would not loose any trainging time :-), I entered the garage and removed my toolbox and then sat outside to eat my lunch where I normally do. Now the entertainment began. The janitor notices my toolbox is missing from his garage. He goes to the assistant-principal (Goofball) and asks were it is. Goofball doesn't know. The janator finds me and asks the same question and I tell him, "It is gone." Goofball calls the State Police. They find me and ask me to go to the "Goofball's" office. The principal shows up. (I wrote him a letter, the week before, telling him what I planned to do.) There was lots of talk and the shuffling of paper. In the end, I was "given" my toolbox but suspended for entering an "Unauthorized Zone".Now that's entertainment!

Later I found out two of my fellow students were suspended for helping me. It was retracted when I told Goofball I didn't need help and that they did'nt help me. I spent the next five days at the FBO next door to the school. I had Wi-Fi access to the internet for study and help with the homework I asked for. The coffee machine was a nice touch at this "exile" location. If I stepped on school property, I would be " arrested immediately". I returned to school after the suspention and made up the time after their graduation. I took my powerplant oral and practical test on the schedule that was made a month before. I was asked by Goofball to leave the school grounds when he found out I completed my testing. Thank you, state school system, for the training. PS I do miss Goofball.
