Local Homeschool Mom Goes Postal
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Police were called into a local Walmart this afternoon when a homeschooling mother attacked an employee, beating her about the head with a nature journal. When asked about the cause of the incident, Walmart employee Shauna Glogleitz said, "I dunno. I mean, I was just making small talk like the manager wants. I, like, told her that her kids were, like, really sweet and standing nicely in line and all. Then I asked why they weren't in school. She said they homeschooled or whatever, and then I was like, "Well, aren't you worried about their socialization and all?" And then she went postal on me. I didn't know a coil-bound notebook could hurt that much." When questioned on her way to the police cruiser, the mother shouted, "Doesn't anyone read Lord of the Flies anymore?"

Thanks for the laugh, Sarah!
