"I'm Tired Of This Stuff"

I received a phone call yesterday afternoon around three.

A male voice said, rather gruffly I thought, "I'm tired of this stuff."

It was disconcerting. The call came from 523-0000.

When I called back the number I got the Springfield School District automated switchboard.

Why would someone from the school district's administrative office call me and make that cryptic comment? I was with a friend when the call came through and we thought perhaps someone at Kraft had tipped over the edge and that maybe Kenneth, indeed, knew the frequency.

Later, my cell phone showed that same number called me back at 4:00 pm and didn't leave a message.

I think my number is in the system because I have grandchildren in the school district.

Well, that certainly answers yesterday's mystery call in full detail....

Another prominent example of the expanding nutty world we live in.......

And also great stuff for the credibility and sanity of the public school district...

.....and a great line that sums up how many people feel about the absurdities and nonsense that infect our public and private worlds, even the people engaged in such conduct: "I'm tired of this stuff" .........and below, a really original thought from the mind of the new city manager....
