My husband worked (in the shop) for the used car section at one of the MOST trusted dealerships in the Victoria area. He told me that every single one of the used cars on that lot were basically "duct taped" together to sell. For instance, when someone's engine block is cracked, instead of repairing it, or replacing it, they put something in it that seals the cracks temporarily, but will eventually fall apart, and the buyer will be stuck with it. I am willing to bet that most car dealerships are this way to some extent. IMO.

Jared, you seem like a genuinely kind person, which is an extremely underappreciated asset these days. Most people have a career of some sort. Family. Friends. Community endeavors. I can explain away why I need to remain anonymous, but it simply boils down to whether or not I am going to be accountable for my actions and words, or not. I choose honesty.
There have been some posters on this thread who have argued that the overweight students should be forced to tuck in their shirt, or else do something about their body and lose weight. I guess next you guys will be encouraging the ugly kids to wear a bag over their head, or get a nose job.
I admire you for sharing your plight with the world. I hope that having this blog will help you in some way to get some of the stress out. I have been in your situation, and very slowly taking a few classes at a time, continued my education, as this is the only solution. Even after doing that, finding a job has taken a long time, but it did happen. Now, things are very very slowly on the upward swing. I know what it is like to just keep going, because you have no choice. God bless you and hang in there. It can get better.
Thank you VPD! Thank God he is unharmed, hopefully more details to come!
My heart is breaking for Oscar's family. Whatever we can do as a community and as individuals to help his family needs to be done. I pray that more information becomes available soon.
Julie, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your blogs about your Father. They are so touching, and you and he are so blessed to have each other, and such a loving relationship. I admire you and your perseverance when it comes to your Dad's well being. God bless you, and I wish you the best.

The dress code is fine, but being a woman with a less than perfect figure, I feel sorry for the kids who have yet to outgrow their "babyfat" so to speak. I know at that age, I was so self conscious, tucking my shirt in was NOT at the top of my list! On the other hand, I guess maybe it would encourage some to lose weight, but I don't know if humiliation is the best route.
