Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son. “Wake up, son. It’s time to go to school!” she said.

“But why, Mum?” he replied. “I don’t want to go.”

“Give me two reasons why you don’t want to go,” his mother fired back.

“Well,” he said. “The kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me too!”

“Oh, that’s no reason not to go to school,” his mum said. “Come on now and get ready.”

“Give me two reasons why I should go to school,” the boy quipped.

“Well for one, you’re 52 years old, and for another you’re the Principal,” she said.
