Hi everyone! My name is Johnny, and I'm the new student!
Okay everyone, turn in your homework!
Did you see that Johnny didn't do his homework?
Yeah. I heard he's a bad kid. He got expelled from his old school.
Does everyone think I'm a bad kid already?
Looks like I still don't have any friends...
Look at Johnny. He's sitting all alone again.
Johnny, what has been going on with you? This is the tenth time a teacher has caught you vandalizing the bathroom stalls. Do you care about the rules at all? Do you have anything better to do after school than causing mishap?
