A female’s intuition is highly sensitive to any change in a man’s body language or behavior after he has been with another woman — however subtle that change may be, we can detect it instantly. Men aren’t as alert to subtle changes in their own behavior as we are. So they are often caught slipping.
But while God outfitted us females with a better intuition than men, we sometimes allow our emotions to get in the way of our good common sense.
As I told you before, here in Atlanta, we have a black male shortage crisis. Because of that, women often find themselves involved with the same man.
This is what happened to two Clayton County middle school teachers who allowed their emotions to get in the way of their good common sense.
Rex Mill Middle School teachers Chaka Cobb and Ebony Smith were charged with misdemeanors following a profanity laced altercation in front of students.
The fight was over a man, Rex Mill physical education teacher Derek Green. The altercation was sparked by a love letter posted by Ebony Smith to Green’s Facebook page begging him for more pillow time.
“I am in love with you. I am tired of being your every blue moon [expletive],” the letter read.
Cobb, who is pregnant with Green’s child, read the letter and posted an angry response to Smith. The two women later confronted each other at the school.
“There was swinging and hitting and profanity between the two,” read an administrative complaint filed with the teachers professional board. Smith took the first swing at Cobb and the fight was broken up by several teachers.
Smith turned in her resignation on Monday in lieu of being terminated, according to the AJC.
Cobb was suspended without pay for 19.5 days. She will return to work on Dec. 4. Green was suspended for 10 days without pay. Though he wasn’t involved in the altercation, he violated the school board’s policy against fraternizing. Green returned to work on Monday.
All three teachers were found to be in violation of school board ethics and professional standard of conduct policies for educators.
In a letter submitted to school administration, Cobb blamed her uncharacteristic behavior to her “raging hormones” because of her pregnancy. “I felt extremely threatened for myself and my fully developed child inside of me,” she wrote.
Smith called the situation “childish and embarrassing.”
Cobb and Smith’s cases have been assigned to a State Court judge. They will likely be arraigned in January, 2010.
