Uptight Principal

The new school principal was making the rounds of his school on his first day. Upon passing the stockroom, he was startled to see the door wide open and teachers rushing in and out, carting-off books and supplies in preparation for the arrival of students the next day. This shocked him because at the school where he had been a principal previously had used an elaborate request/check-out system that required his signature for everything. He briskly walked off and stopped by the office of the school's long-time custodian and asked, "Do you think it's wise to keep the stock room unlocked and to let the teachers take things without filling in requisitions?"

The custodian looked at him gravely and replied, "We trust them with the children, don't we?"
