Little Tommy was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried
everything; tutors, flash cards, special learning centers, in short,
everything they could think of. Finally in a last ditch effort, they
took Tommy down & enrolled him in the local Catholic School.
After the first day, little Tommy comes home with a very serious look
on his face. He doesn't kiss his mother hello. Instead, he goes
straight to his room & starts studying. Books & papers are spread
out all over the room and little Tommy is hard at work. His mother
is amazed. She calls him down to dinner and to her shock, the minute
he is done he marches back to his room without a word and in no time
he is back hitting the books as hard as before. This goes on for
sometime, day after day while the mother tries to understand what
made all the difference.
Finally, little Tommy brings home his report card. He quietly lays it
on the table and goes up to his room and hits the books. With great
trepidation, his Mom looks at it and to her surprise, little Tommy
got an A in math. She can no longer hold her curiosity. She goes to
his room and says:
"Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?" Little Tommy looks at her and
shakes his head.
"Well, then," she replies, "was it the books, the discipline, the
structure, the uniforms,WHAT was it?"
Little Tommy looks at her and says, "Well, on the first day of
school, when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they
weren't fooling around."
