 by the owner of the Al Najal School in Oman after vehemently scolding her for her physical abuse of the children in front of a mother from the Palace. (Good)

Fired by the Doctor in charge of the Kuliyapalium Health Center after having admonished one of the doctors’ wives for not bringing the food for the 92 waiting children. (No regrets)

Probation at Seattle University for rounding up a good group of girls from our freshman dorm to go sing to the boy’s dorm.I had been asked by one of the boys to organize something as there was nothing going on that weekend on campus and that seemed nice to me. (Backfired) It caused a riot after I was thrown into the Champion Towers fountain and the boys ran out for a campus 'panty raid' (a USA college 'tradition') on all the girl dorms nearby. The Dean was very upset & I had to pay for all new briefs!

Probation at St. Scholastica’s Academy in freshman year for smoking in the shower (cloth water). (Dumb)
Suspended St. Scholastica's Academy. Sent home for one week. Little tolerance for faking a 'visitation' of the Blessed Mother on the holiest girl in our dorm (whose early morning prep. for Mass dailey always woke us up). A Senior had a glow in the dark, very large statue of Mary. With a string around the neck and feet looped over the light above her desk at the foot of her bed Mary rose at 3am...calling. Once our classmate was aware of 'Mary' Mary told her she had been chosen to help the world and was to go to chapel daily, at lunchtime, and instead of lunch she was to 'pray for Peace on Earth'. Then Mary told her to close her eyes so she could go back to heaven. Our classmate confided her vision to the Superior..the head nun had her doubts...
Jailed at 12yrs. Was sent (my mothers orders to the highway patrol officer who 'found' me) to wait in a cell at the Pueblo, sherrifs office, while they went out to dinner. Had run away from home (with my transitor radio) after upset with mother who had dared ridicule, Elvis...(what can I say?)       
Expelled from first grade, Stephen School in Denver, for one too many times of raising my hand to be excused to go to the bathroom. I would then get my jacket on the hook in the hall and leave the school to go for a nice long walk exploring after stopping at the local drugstore soda fountain for a cherry coke... (Spent the rest of the school year in a guest room at home with my food served on a tray…three months…learning ‘reflection’..taught me meditation instead!)
