Teaspoon update

Caitlin talked to her teacher and the group was asked to change their name.

They're now called the Gummi Bears :)

No-one was difficult about it. The girl who had originally chosen the name and given the explanation of its meaning protested that she didn't mean anything by it, which I take to mean she was a bit embarrassed to be called out on the matter. I'm also pretty sure she's never given any serious thought to the issue, she's just following along with the mob. I wonder how many teaspoon nudges it takes to get a mob to change direction?

Here's a duh moment - you mean these were like official group names sanctioned by the teacher????

Double head shake.

Glad that Caitlin had it all sorted.

Yay to Caitlin!

And yeah, what on earth was the teacher thinking? Or was she at all? :P

Ummm, yeah, I can't believe that any teacher would let this slide. It's totally unacceptable.
