From my “Murphy’s Law” desk calendar archives thanks to Aunt Evelyn, Uncle Pipey, and cousin Nancy:
Note: The goofy guy disagrees with this one. However, if we change the word “teach” to “train” and apply this to the military, it is right on. i was always amazed when the Navy would never assign the most promotable officers to training positions but would take officers who had not screened for a position to then assign them to train others for that position. But teachers should be the highest paid careers in our country. They are that important and we should encourage pursuit of teaching for a career.
Mencken’s Law: Those who can, do. Those who cannot teach.
Goofy guy’s denial and addition to Mencken’s Law: Teachers are better, and those who can’t also do.
