| THE KEYS (by Mrs. Wilson)
Ann Wilson is the 12th grade (18-year-olds) physical education
teacher at Columbus High School in Ohio. She gave Linda, one of
her students, the keys to the girls´ locker room in the gym. Linda
gave the keys to 2 other girl students.
When Mrs.Wilson saw Linda in the hall, she asked her (Linda) about
the keys, and she (Linda) said:
- "I gave them (the keys) to them (the 2 students),
but they (the 2 students) gave them (the keys) to Susan to give
to me. She (Susan) couldn´t find me, so she gave them (the keys)
to Robert, who took off the blue key from the ring and gave it
(the blue key) to Mr. Johnson (another teacher). Robert put the
key ring in your mail box. Mr. Johnson just gave it (the blue
key) to me, and I was going to use it (the blue key) to open your
mail box to put it (the blue key) on them (the key ring) and give
them (all the keys) to give to you. Here, take it (the blue key),
and you can put it (the blue key) on them (the key ring) yourself."
- "Thanks, Linda," said Mrs. Wilson. "I´ve only wasted
30 minutes looking for you in order to find out that I have to
waste another 10 minutes to get my keys."
- "You´re welcome, Mrs.Wilson. Any time you need a
favor, I´ll be glad to help you."
- "Now you know why my hair is grey!"
