lol Actually I stopped bringing Charlie to school. I was having a hard enough time getting myself out of bed and ready to go, let alone Charlie. Part of the reason I started bringing Charlie to school is that he would scream at the top of his lungs when I left. I live in an apartment and I had one lady ask me if that was my bird (pre Jasper) she kept hearing. I was starting to get really nervous about the noise he was making while I was gone. Fortunately adding a mirror to his cage and Jasper to the family has practically ended the screaming. So now I don't worry about leaving the birds at home while I go to work.
