Chaperoning disaster

Dear Arties:
One of my "other" duties was to chaperone the homecoming dance. It was
yesterday. Three of our students came in reeking of alcohol. All of the
other teacher chaperones said, "Did you smell that?" But not one stopped the
kids. So I went to the advisor (and I use the term loosely) and she said
what do I want to do about it???!!! I was furious! These "children" are 17.
It turns out that they were at a restaurant and were served there. That's
another story ... any other students would be expelled from school. We are a
private institution. And this advisor lets all of their friends come in the
room to "console them" Like the were hurt in an accident or something, while
we waited for their parents to show up.
I'm sorry I'm venting, But I would like to know what happens at your schools.

I can't wait to see what happens tomorrow.
