Blood Sucker

LOL...I mean...OUCH!

Sounds like the principal from the school I just left. He's new, and he's new to our school. He is, well, less than desired. Oh, he's not an ass, he simply has absolutely zero personal skills. The guy can manage but damn does he need a front man.

Your story reminded me of the final meeting I went to before leaving the school. Our principal announced he'd be teaching one section of Social Studies so that the teachers in that department didn't have giant classes or auxiliary classes.

He got huge applauses. But, then we found out he's teaching the HONORS section...go figure.
