Today a student ran into my room between classes and grabbed my stapler. This kid is intensely hyper, runs everywhere, and is not above grabbing my stapler to shoot staples around the classroom. Today, instead of taking it away, he impulsively grabbed the stapler and stapled himself in the arm. Stunned, he looked at the staple in his skin, looked at me, showed me his arm, and started screaming in horror and fascination, “I STAPLED MY ARM!!! I STAPLED MY ARM!!!” He then ran back out of the classroom, with me yelling after him to go to the nurse.
These kids are crazy.
