I am a high school teacher, and back when we were still in the classroom, I had a student say "my Mom took away my phone" to another student. Almost every student will get their phone taken away for a few days or weeks as punishment from parents, so I found it curious when this student happened to add "...FOREVER. I am not getting it back!" I immediately wondered if his Mom was a Dr. Laura listener!
A few months later, I was listening to your show on my phone during lunch. That same student came in to ask a question, heard your voice and said "Is that Dr. Laura? My mom listens to her too!"
I said, "Is that why you don't have a phone?" He looked down and said a slow
"y e a h." I knew it!! I told him I had a feeling that Dr. Laura might be behind this.
My husband considers this his favorite story that I've brought home from school, so I just had to share it with you.
