    Whew. No mention of Tía Carmen’s signature lengua casserole.

    Tsk, Tsk, Principals are not supposed to be making moves on the Lunch Ladies no matter how “Heavenly” they may look.

    Why not? Certainly he shouldn’t be hitting on students, & maybe not on teachers either — but this one is arguable, at least — but why not Lunch Ladies?

    What’s Spanish for “sexual harrassment”?

    Sexual harassment is a tricky thing. Usually it involves coercion of some sort. Or an implied threat. I don’t see that here.

    I don’t see it either. But that will depend on just how far the principal takes it. If she is ok with his advances (once she figures it out) that’s not harassment. It is only harassment if it makes the work place uncomfortable or threatening.

    Tia Camen, may have understood the principal correctly, or she could have been politely turning his compliment aside. One definition of attendant, "a logical consequence or natural accompaniment ", could apply to the creamed spinach; however, I doubt it was what the principal meant.
    We know that Tia Carmen must be quite attractive because of events in earlier strips. Likewise, we also know that she can be quite naive at times.

    i looked for a play on words in the spanish version of this strip, like ‘sirvienta’ and some similar word for serving or side dish in spanish but there doesn’t seem to be any. looks like she is simply turning aside his little compliment….

    At one HS the vice principal was married to the Chem teacher. At another there were at least 3 married couples among the teachers and one of them was head of the math department and after I left she ended up getting promoted to director. I see no problem with administrators dating faculty.

    He could have been a little more subtle. But he might be in a hurry. Life is short.
