FOUND by Jason Saiter in a high school classroom podium
I found this on my podium with a bunch of other notes on the same-sized paper. The custodian likely put it there, but I’m not sure. I teach in a high school and thought this was pretty interesting compared to other things I’ve found. Tried to discreetly find the owner with no luck.
This note was found in my friend Cory’s high school locker after, presumably, having been dropped in there by mistake. We found it on 12/3/2000 and I kept it in my wallet for the next 10 years. On the heavy side, I was an American high school student and this was a year and a half after the Columbine shootings. The sort of 1950′s sock-hop innocence of this note helped me remember that the entire world wasn’t always going to hell all the time. It kinda gave me perspective.
I love the way she emphasizes the words “Sometimes”, “care about”, and “one” with an underline in the second paragraph. I also love the question, “Do you hold hands?” Some of her turns of phrase are pure genius.
Also, caught your show in Bloomington last night. Thanks for coming to our little town! the show was great, and I hope you had a good time!
This note was found at a high school nestled at the top of a garbage can. If it isn’t golden I don’t know what is. Cute little cartoons and drawing decorate this seemingly innocent note. Innocent, that is, until we read on a bit and discover this innocent young lady needs an FTF!
My friend lives across the street from a high school. Not only that, he lives across from the opening in the fence where everybody goes in and comes out. So I find stuff there all the time. This test in particular makes me laugh whenever I read the teacher’s comments.
