    It’s summer vacation. Why is he still whining about book reports? Is he feeling guilty about not doing them?

    Is there a draft in here? Because Caulfield should have done a first one by now.

    Imagine the lucky teacher who gets to read those 30 book reports from 8-year-olds. It must totally make her day!

    Caulfield is being a pest now.

    I used to have to teach 5 batches ranging from classes 10-12 every day, each with 40+ students for 10 years when I was a teacher. Even though I was very light on home assignments, having habitual defaulters really tests your patience.

    I just finished reading “Moby Dick” and now I understand my vague feeling of dissatisfaction: I feel like I should write a book report but there’s nobody to turn it in to. (But I’ll get over it; I probably wouldn’t have done it even when I was supposed to.)

    From all the bitching posted here and elsewhere, it seems that most of us should not have had much trouble writing reports in school.

    Now Caulfield is starting to act like a kid.

    Yesterday Caulfield claimed to want to develop a good understanding of what he had read before having to turn in a report. Today, he seems to see it as a time to stall until the last minute. Sounds about average for elementary school thinking. Unfortunately, in my years in the classroom, that habit carried through until graduation for many of my students.

    Once on a Sunday night, I just made up a story, an author and a silly title and wrote a book report about it. Mea maxima culpa…

    Possible ways a good Frazz in an alternate universe might respond:

    “You know, occasionally getting shit done well and on time might prepare you to … you know, succeed. In life. Just in case you have to work for someone other than yourself.”


    “Have you ever thought for a minute about how happy it might make Mrs. Olsen, were you to do some simple thing she asked of you? Because, well, it’s her job to ask? And because, um, in some circles it’s considered a good thing to think of someone other than yourself?”


    “I know my role here is just to nod and agree with you, but you know what? You’re a real jackass about 90 per cent of the time. Today, you’re okay. But come on.”
