It’s Called Respect

After retiring, a former Gunny Sergeant in the Marine Corps took a new job as a high school teacher.

Just before the school year started, he injured his back.

He was required to wear a light plaster cast around the upper part of his body.

Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn’t noticeable when he wore his suit coat.

On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school.

The smart-aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk.

When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.

Dead silence …

The rest of the year went smoothly.

  1. Got a paratrooper son who routinely gets foreign wing medals for teaching military from other countries – they always stick the wing pin directly through his uniform (it’s a military thing), so this story resonated!
