File This One Under "Oh Great."

On the first day of the semester I like to play a little game. This game requires students to write an interesting fact about themselves onto a slip of paper, which they then hand to me. I read these anonymous interesting facts aloud and then the students look around the room and try to determine who belongs to each fact.

It is a fun game. It is illuminating.

Today, though, I unfolded a slip of paper that was unlike any other slip of paper I'd seen before in this game. It was less interesting and more, uhm, angry.

I hate people, the note read. Their ignorance appalls me. Leave me alone.

I'm just wondering how my note wound up in your classroom.

Looks like you've got some charmers this semester.
