Okay. All right.

Wow. And thanks

for the bus duty, doing that.

You want the vest on the chair

or just go with the... I'm

going to go with the desk.

it on the desk, okay?

Baby!

Can we take our seats, people?

Come on in.

We're about to begin.

with your union to try

to minimize the impact

on the classrooms,

but, unfortunately,

I have to make

some serious cuts.

Starting immediately, we'll

back to last year's pay scales.

Joke's on him. I didn't get

extracurricular activities,

which includes the debate club,
