1. Don't be a student waving around a $20 bill in front of Mrs. Bergland in chapel. You will raise suspicions.
2. Don't be a student who gives a second $20 bill to your friend. More red flags will go up.
3. Don't be a student who gives a $20 bill to your friend - especially when Mrs. Bergland has just found out that your very own little brother lost a $20 bill at school that very same day. She will automatically think you are potentially the thief.
4. Don't be a student who takes a $20 bill from a friend and then lie to Mrs. Bergland saying that you brought the $20 bill from home. She will ask you a very important question: "Does your mom know you brought a $20 bill to school today?"
5. Don't be a student who takes a $20 bill from your friend and then lie and say that yes, your mom does know you brought a $20 bill to school today - because she will then ask you another very important question: "So if I go out there and see your mom in the pick up line, she's going to tell me that she knows you had a $20 bill in school today?"
6. Don't be a student who lies to Mrs. Bergland.
7. Don't lie to your parents either. They're just as unhappy as Mrs. Bergland.
8. Come to my chapel next month when I present the 9th Commandment: Thou shalt not lie.
9. Pay attention in chapel this month as we learn about the 8th Commandment: Thou shalt not steal.
10. As my Granny Fannie always says, "Be sure your sin will find you out." She also says, "Liars burn. Sizzle. Sizzle."
