I Don't Want To Go To School

 Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son.
"Wake up, son.  It's time to go to school!"
"But why, Mom?  I don't want to go."
"Give me two reasons why you don't want to go."
"Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me also!"

"Oh, that's no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready." 
"Give me two reasons why I should go to school."
"Well, for one, you're 52 years old.  
And for another, you're the PRINCIPAL!"
