One of Those Days

It started with James almost getting run over. Nothing new. Only it was just a little closer than usual, so close that the woman in the passenger seat even smacked the driver.
The bus to school was closer than usual to a truck hauling propane tanks.
3 students out of 30 had their papers in hand. When I told them I was extending the deadline, they shrugged like, "Whatever, lady."
Someone failed a government official's daughter. They were told to change the grade.
As I was walking to my 5:00 class, a group of students laughed at a small fire they had produced on some stairs.

The woman in the passenger seat smacked the person her car almost hit? Man. My day has gone much better by comparison. I just got the time of a conference call wrong.

Hee! No. She smacked the driver. What was amazing was that she cared. But that was just bad writing on my part.

OK, I fixed it!

If it makes you feel any better, your post made my day brighter, but not due to schadenfreude or anything like that. It just makes me happy to know you've got stuff going on.
