This is a true story from a co-worker about her nephew. John had just enjoyed a successful year of kindergarten and was excited to start first grade. He was a good kindergarten student and loved his 1/2 day sessions in the morning. On the first day of school in the first grade, he listened attentively and participated in all the morning activities. When the bell rang at 11:30, he put his coat on and gathered his bag of books and pencils. The teacher asked John where he was going. He said that school was done now and he was going home. The teacher said that first graders have to stay the whole day. John threw his bag to the floor and exclaimed, "Who in the hell signed me up for this?"
