"What idiotic things is Jimmy doing at school today?"

Those were the questions my parents would be asking themselves on a daily basis...

I was never a "bad" kid, I went to school every day, and I like to think most of my teachers enjoyed having me in class, but I was notorious for hitting someone in the head with a thrown crayon or typing "boobs.com" in the search engine of the classroom computers. I didn't go to school to learn, I went to school to laugh and have conversations with friends. This is why I did many childish-asinine things that frequently made the principal "call home"...

I should clarify, most of these things happened in elementary school. I like to think I somewhat matured in intermediate and high school... but not really. I had a 1.4 GPA heading into my senior year, if it wasn't for my English teacher Mr. Johnson saying, "You would be good doing radio and TV", I would probably be sleeping in a dumpster somewhere... Thank you, Mr. Johnson! I'll always appreciate you...

I can't get off track, this article is about me getting suspended in 5th grade. The year was 2005 and I was a student at Central School in Wall Township, New Jersey.

Listen to Jimmy G nights on 94.3 The Point and download our free 94.3 The Point app.

One random day, after running around like a crazy person on the playground for recess, I was called into the principal's office. At that point, my life was never going to be the same. Seconds into being interrogated by the principal, I got suspended from Central School. I was suspended for "Saying dirty words and using inappropriate hand gestures."  The suspension was 24 hours but my 5th-grade self thought the world was ending. I started packing my bags when I got home, I thought I was going to be sent away...

You might ask, what dirty words was I saying, and what inappropriate hand gestures was I performing? To be honest, I don't remember, I actually don't think I said or did anything wrong. I think it was a total setup by the entire Central School administration. It was all hearsay! Literally, this principal was getting his facts from my 5th-grade peers?!?!

Don't get me wrong, there were a few things I deserved to get in trouble for but inappropriate hand gestures?!? I WAS IN 5TH GRADE!! WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME?!

For some reason, whether it was true or not, I felt like the Central School principal was always out to get me. It was probably 5th-grade paranoia. That being said, this principle was a total tool, and he was eventually found bullying other teachers and aides. He was unceremoniously relieved of his duties a few years ago... I hope he is reading this...

Most importantly, I hope you and your family are having a safe and healthy school year! Wishing all the teachers, students, and parents a great 2022! Summer we'll be here before you know it! - Jimmy G
