At the silent auction yesterday, husband told me he was bidding on the paper shredder (small - not the smallest, but not $1,000 worth). As I was walking around, I noticed our number and $1,000 on the sheet. I ran to find husband (he was working in the school office) and asked him what was going on. He was very puzzled and came to look. We crossed that bid off (He had put $25.00 on the line above) and I went to find difficult child to see if he knew anything about this. difficult child said that J did it. ("Then why did you NOT cross it off!!!???) So, I went to find J (one of my 2nd graders) and asked him about it. "J, did you write somethings down on the papers at the silent auction?" "Yep, I put down 180 and $1,000.00." His eyes got big when I explained, "180 is my number. Do you know that if they close the auction with that on the sheet that husband and I would have to pay $1,000? We don't have that amount." "Oh, I didn't know!" "Please don't do that again." And off he ran. I think he may have done some more before our talk because I overheard people saying to those in charge, "There is a bid over here that looks fishy'. I told the teachers (who were in charge of the silent auction) what had happened and they went around to check all the sheets. I am glad it didn't happen to someone who would not have seen the humor in this. I was rofl when I figured this out. But then again, it is easier to laugh when you know the little culprit is a sweetheart that really did not understand the extent of what he was doing.
