Hi....Not only do teachers talk during an inservice...try teaching a room
full of teachers (35-50) for 3 hours a week in your classroom at night.
Drives me absolutely bonkers! Remember the scene from THE MUSIC MAN when
the chatty women were talkin' and they turned into clucking chickens?
Multiply that by 50 and you've got my classroom. I'd have a fit if the kids
did that! And the teaching dears kinda snicker under their collective
breaths when you give them "the look". Does NOT work on teachers! Only
makes them laugh!

Following this thread....what about teachers when they "hit" the vendors at
a convention. Lordy....Katy bar the door! The pushing, shoving, elbowing,
yelling....and THAT'S just in the line before the vendors' doors open! Not
a one of us would allow our kids to behave like that! Shudder. I must
admit, though, I'm right in the midst of it all myself when it comes to
vendors and FREE STUFF!! Hee, hee.

And I BET some of the vendors on our listserv could R-E-A-L-L-Y give us an
earful about convention behavior. I suppose they've seen everything.
