“I, too, was subjected to doing lollipops and writing multiple lines of ‘I shall not…’ in grade school as punish work.

“I guess they were getting pretty upset with the children who claimed they did not hear being called — until it was determined that a parrot that lived in the area had learned to mimic the response to the mothers’ calls.”
