1 "I hate the food here," Melinda said to her friend Stephanie. "I hate buying lunch here. I wish my mom would pack lunch for me."
2 Melinda progressed through the cafeteria line with a sour look on her face. She continued to mutter under her breath. One of the cafeteria servers smiled and asked, "Beans or corn with that?"
3 "Whatever," Melinda answered with a sneer. "None of it is good, anyway."
4 The worker frowned. She had dealt with her last mean-spirited student of the day.
5 "That's it!" she cried. "I've had it with you ungrateful kids." She took off her gloves and threw them onto the counter. She stomped off to the back room.
6 "Get a load of that!" Melinda said loudly. "Who spit in her cereal this morning?"
7 "You did," said a voice behind her. It was Mr. Spellman, the principal. "Come with me, Melinda."
8 Mr. Spellman walked Melinda up on the stage that was in the cafeteria, which doubled as an auditorium. He tapped the microphone.
