A friend of mine is a teacher, and one of his coworkers has gone on at great length about how he doesn't share his students' cultural experiences and therefore can't understand them.  He sent an e-mail to the entire faculty the other day about the stereotyping of the Irish in America.  This other teacher put a foil-wrapped chocolate coin and a picture of a dancing leprechaun in every teacher's mailbox yesterday.  And according to my friend, it wasn't even good chocolate.
