The Day I Had It with Fidgets

We were in the middle of class meeting when a student got out Silly Putty and started pulling it into long strings.  I asked him to put it away and he responded, "But that's my fidget!"

I said, "Thank you.  You have pushed me to a place where I will now do something about fidgets."

After a little research about the purpose and misuse of fidgets, I was ready to rewrite my rules.
