In the 4th grade, it became like tradition in my class to loudly shout hello to the janitor when he came in like once a week. We’d all shout “Hello Mr. King!” and then go right back to what we were doing. And he would smile so big and like you could tell he didn’t get this kinda of recognition usually and we did it every time we saw him for the whole year. And then all those kids moved on to the 5th grade and the first time we saw him we said “Hello Mr. King!” while the teacher was talking and she didn’t know the tradition and she fucking lost it like “??? We do NOT interrupt the teacher why did you all do that anyways???” And we explained and she said “Well that’s over. Don’t do it again.” And I saw Mr. King smile sadly and then leave. And that’s why school is fucking shit.
