Trouble in the Pod
Resist the urge to say "I told you not to bring your iPod to school." Resist the urge to rant and rave about irresponsibility and the $200 cost or replacing aforementioned iPod. Also resist the urge to let the teenager know, under no uncertain terms, that you won't be footing the bill for his stupidity. Especially after realizing that YOU, a grown woman of some 40 odd years, left her cute pink iPod in her desk drawer at work (unlocked) for an entire weekend at least 3 times.
He is bereft. I almost don't recognize him without those little wires dangling out of his ears. I really hope it's in his locker.
