Call me Vesuvius...

cause I'm about to blow.


We had a parent meeting tonight at school.  I wasn't looking forward to this one because a huge change was made last week (a much needed change!) that the teachers were beyond thankful for but that I knew the parents would be ticked about.

Please believe me when I tell you that is was SO hard for me to keep my mouth shut tonight.  (For the record, I am rewarding said quiet mouth with chocolate right now.  SO. WRONG. I know.  :(  )

I wanted to stand up and tell all those ridiculous parents off because they have no idea what was really going on and the board couldn't say what really happened in the interest of protecting everyone involved in the situation.

UGH!  I can't really say anything more except to say that so, so, so many lies were thrown out tonight by some of those parents.  I am sick to death of the sense of entitlement that some people have and how they want to hide behind their version of "religion" and "God" to justify what they are saying when, in reality, they have NO IDEA what they are talking about.

They complain about disrespect shown to them but then they are unbelievably disrespectful to the people who are in the front speaking.  I had parents all around me griping and complaining to the people around them.  I had to choke back some pretty terse comments when one parent started running down the very person THEY ELECTED TO BE ON THEIR BOARD as he was trying to explain things to them.

My absolute favorite is when the very ones that act so spiritual and holy are the ones that are standing around gossiping and complaining and acting like they know what happened.

UGH again!  And now I am so wound up that I can't go to bed yet and I am really tired.


and grrrrrrrrrrrr again.

  1. Grrr is right!
    It never stops amazing me how people drum up their own version of religion and god to suit their own wants, needs, etc. Anything can be justified when one does that....
    At least today is Thursday and there is just one more day in this very l-o-n-g 4 day week!
    Hope that you got some sleep last night!
