This thing reminds me of the old janitor you see moving slowly around the building, that you find out later took four bullets in 'Nam getting his buddies into the evac chopper.
Back when I first started HS (1977) there was an old teacher in his last year before retirement. Many of my "less well behaved classmates"* treated the guy poorly (back talk, insults, stealing stuff from his desk, etc...). He always tolerated it with class. About a decade after graduation I saw his obituary in the local newspaper. OMG! The guy was a certifiable WW2 hero - a total stud. One of the few US soldiers who served in both the European and Pacific theaters. Earned 2 Purple Hearts and a Distinguished Service Cross.

Only after reading his obit did I understand why he ignored the BS from these kids. They weren't worthy of his efforts.

*Read complete idiots
