Need a Few Extra Bucks?

It's your lucky day! Today's Daily News reports your principal can now give you eighty bucks to clean your classroom if a bigwig like Deputy Chancellor Carmen Farina comes to visit. Apparently Ms. Farina is very sensitive, and does not wish to be reminded what city schools really look like.

So when the big moment comes, get that dustpan moving, and eighty smackers can be yours. Don't be caught with your pants down, like the thousands of hapless math and science teachers who missed out on that $14,600 bonus because of bad timing. Make sure to always leave your classroom an utter mess so you can "clean up" when that eighty bucks is headed your way.

And if you get tired of waiting, don't despair. As Quentin Crisp said, "Cleaning is a waste of time. After four years, the dust doesn't get any worse."

Many thanks to Schoolgal for the tip!
