The Captain Explains His Strategy

The captain at the helm

My son’s doing a team project in 7th grade social studies. He was selected as team captain, and he’s explaining his strategy to me:

“For each part of the project, we try to have a good guy paired with an off-task guy,” he says. “Or actually, I secretly tried to do that because I’m the captain. The worst guy on the team is Kevin. Whenever he asks, “Why do we have to do it this way?” I ask him, “Why are you getting a C in this class?”

I say, “Wow, that’s pretty harsh.”

“I’m trying to make a point that if we do it his way, we’re going to get a bad grade. That’s why I was nominated as captain.”
