Students at the school at Cedar Springs had to bring water from a nearby spring. Two little boys were given permission by the teacher to bring a bucket of water. They came back with the water wearing mysterious, impish grins on their faces and a twinkle in their eyes that said, "We know something you donít know." The teacher forced them to clear the mystery. They had urinated in the bucket of water for a joke.

The teacher gave us a perfect example of fitting the punishment to the crime: She had the boys drink some of the water. U-h-h-h-h!!!!

Name of persons involved are withheld to avoid embarrassment. This episode was also a perfect example of a job turning sour.
