That camera that was temporarily mine?

It's not permanently mine; when my yearly grant comes along in July, I pay for it. $400 for an apparently $600 camera, I'll be glad to pay.

I like taking photos of things.

I didn't want taco bell today at work, so my boss and I tried a new place that I suggested. The food was awesome. My boss said "That was one of the best chicken sandwiches I have ever had. I think we found a new usual place to order from.

Don't let them whippersnappers run roughshod over you. You have the authority, don't hesitate to use it. Kids, even in college, are attempting to exert their own independence by pushing back. I learned most of my crowd control skills volunteering for the Boy Scouts of America, back in the '90s. I used the BSA, they used me. I think we are even, in terms of my service to them, and my own personal growth. I don't agree with their policies about atheists, gays and homosexuals (.NE.pedophile), but the rest of it is actually good.

ETA- "MR Nice Guy" ain't gonna cut it, except in a limited sense.

Special note- You young people who may be going to high school or college, just remember that while I'm giving helpful hints to another educator, your education also relies on your cooperation with the system. If you think that college is just high school "down the street", you will be eventually disappointed. A word to the wise...

Further ETA- the students where I taught learned better than to even enter the classroom until it was their class time. It will come with experience.

Amen. (No offense meant, just using it as an agreement.) Most of the time, I get what I want out of the carrot/Mr. Nice Guy approach instead of the stick. Which is good, come eval time. The student doing her test said she didn't even know I could say something without a smile, when she turned hers in.

But you're right, there's definitely a time for the stern Queen face and speech. I've already made a post it by my computer for next semester to nip things in the bud early if it happens again, but taking all the steps I did, and then going to their Dean if necessary. Because I stopped at the prof level. Interestingly enough, while discussing the issue with others, it seems it's almost a cultural thing with the college those students are from in the university, where they pick up the disdain for the other colleges (sometimes I dare say, from their faculty) and never receive any sort of rebuke for it from on high. Thanks for the advice, I truly appreciate it and will try to take it to heart!

And Boy Scouts! I've got to admit, I did Cub Scouts and never went on after watching them pick on kids a year older than me, locking them out in the cold in their underwear and such.

Though on crowd control...while I've had courses in pedagogy and team taught classes and TAing before, most of my crowd control was learned back in the Baptist days. In particular through volunteering with Vacation Bible School and with the annual Biker Worship Night/Festival thing we did...you know, big burly guys in leather jackets are some of the most courteous folks you'll ever meet. It's the "church people" all dressed up that need forced out of the way when you're the one carrying 25 pounds of meat for the grill guys.

Need to think of a witty signature.

Oh, I'm so happy The Dudesons started posting stuff every second day on YT; this is still some of the funniest shit I saw as a kid:
