Little Tommy’s parents had tried everything to help
his math grade: tutors, flash cards, “Hooked on Math,”
special learning centers, everything. Finally, they
enrolled him in the local Catholic school.
The very first day, he came home with a very serious
look on his face, went straight to his room, and
started studying. His mother was amazed. Books and
paper were spread out everywhere and Little Tommy was
hard at work. As soon as dinner was through, he
marched right back up to his room without a word
and studied some more. This went on for weeks until
Little Tommy proudly brought home his report card
and showed it to his parents:
An A in Math! “Tommy! This is great! I’m so proud of
you! Son, what was it? What helped motivate you? Was
it the nuns?” Little Tommy shook his head.
“Well, then, was it the books? The discipline? The
structure? The uniforms? What?” Little Tommy looked
at her and said, “Well, Mom, it’s like this.
When I saw that guy out in the lobby nailed to a plus
sign, I knew they weren’t screwing around!”
