LOL the second part is pretty much my approach when I find out my son got bullied at school.As a teacher I commend you. You were professional, and you followed procedures. What would you teach the kid if you bent the rules? You’d reinforce the behavior. You taught the kid natural consequences. The missed hunt was his parents fault.
As an Anaconda, Montana boy I’d have asked him to meet me in the parking lot to discuss the matter further. If you’re from the area you know the reputation. It’s what happens when you grow up in a depressed mining town. If you’re going to talk, you better get ready to walk.
Best be ready to settle things in the parking lot cause ya'll just made a deal with the devil and he's more then happy to start things off with a swift kick to the ball bag.
