A crossing guard for a British school said he quit after officials threatened to suspend him. Sixty-five year old Bob Slade said he quit his job as a crossing guard (at Manadon Vale Primary School in Plymouth, England) when the Plymouth, England, city council threatened to suspend him for four weeks for giving out high-fives to the crossing children. Slade, who worked outside the school for four years, said officials told him the greeting was inappropriate because he should be using one hand to hold his stop sign and the other to signal traffic.

Some parents with children at a New Hampshire elementary school said they disagree with the principal’s decision to ban playing tag at recess. The principal (Patricia Beaulieu) at Charlotte Avenue Elementary School in Nashua posted a statement to the school’s website saying tag was being banned due to recent injuries.

A Pennsylvania man phoned police the other day to report that someone at his place of employment had stolen from him. The man told cops the thief took his Jell-O from the break room refrigerator. The man said it was not the first time his food had been stolen from the refrigerator.
