I realize the mornings are a hectic time. You have a class to prepare for, yet you are required to pace the drop off area to make sure all the little ankle biters are making it from car to classroom in a timely manner. Plus it's 110 degrees out side at 8:30 freaking AM. I get it. It's hot and you're stressed out and tired. I have so been there, babe.
But.... That is no reason to come marching down the sidewalk pointing at my car and screaming about where the drop off point is. It's not like I let the kids out to run in traffic. It's not like I haven't been dropping them off in this same exact spot for the last FOUR YEARS. It's not like there's a flashing sign in the front of the school that says "Hey dumbass, we changed the drop off procedures!"
I didn't know. Okay? I didn't receive a written or verbal notification that from now on we are only allowed to let the children out of the car when we are directly in front of the gate. I DIDN'T KNOW. And obviously the four carloads of children behind my were driven by parents who didn't know either. I never thought in a million years, for the sake of practicality, you would adopt a new procedure that would allow only one car at a time to unload, thus increasing the amount of time it takes me to drop off my children in the morning to FORTY GODFORSAKEN MINUTES.
Raising your voice? Unnecessary.
Pointing and flailing your "what the hell" hands at me? Uncalled for.
Telling my children to tell their mother she is not following proper drop off procedures? Unprofessional.
This school's new drop off procedures? COMPLETELY UNREASONABLE.
So unless you want me to get out of my car and stick my foot in a place that will make it very uncomfortable for you to sit, stand or pace the sidewalk, from now on when you see me, you will smile, wave, compliment my hair and shoes, tell me I look like I have lost weight, say my children are the most amazing children you have ever had the pleasure of interacting with in all your years of teaching and bid me good day.
Your cooperation is appreciated.
P.S. That skirt makes your ass look huge and the new drop off procedure sucks.
