    I’m going to ask the owner of my work to let us go home because it’s too hot, and pay us for the day. Like that will really happen. Grow up already.

    Oh so too hot. Orwigsburg is now like Miami , Flagstaff or San Antonio. They wouldn’t have school all year in those cities! What is wrong with BM. isn’t this the same school district that was gonna arm its students with rocks. skook a laughing stalk in america! home of blight, street roamers, cult conformity and look the other way culture.

    We are raising another generation of cupcakes. It’s too hot,let’s dismiss early. It’s too cold,let’s delay starting. There’s 2 inches of snow. Better cancel. Everybody gets a trophy for participating!! Should be quite interesting when this crop of delicate flowers combines with the last group that’s already “participating” in the workforce (when the mood strikes them to show up for work,provided they’re even employed to begin with.) And before someone chimes in with it, no, I actually didn’t walk uphill through blizzards to school 4 miles each day.Just pointing out the sad truth here.
