The Thought Only Counts if Thought Goes Into It

Each of the yard duty supervisors got this from the principal:

No individual note. No message -- printed or handwritten -- thanking us for doing a good job. No addressing of the envelopes herself. No stuffing of the envelopes herself. Just a card she signed with some five-for-a-buck weird-ass Christmas tree ornament rear-view mirror hanger hell-if-I-know pair of mittens connected by yarn.

Gee, thanks.

Oh, I know, I know. "It's the thought that counts," you're thinking. To which I can only respond, "What thought would that be?"

Being the cynic that I am, the only thought I would infer is that principal doesn't 'think' very highly of her yard duty supervisors.

My friend who was at the school years ago when we had a different principal:

When Kandee did it she gave us a little card that they all signed and a little packet of tissues with a Christmas print. It was perfect. I put it in my pocket and used them on cold mornings on the yard. I remember every time I'd blow thinking, "this one's on Kandee." :)

i agree no thought...just a chore on a list that needs to be checked my guess!
