here's my gripe…

a letter

dear [REDACTED] elementary,

thanks so much for scheduling your teacher professional development day on a wednesday. you really couldn’t have picked a monday or a friday for this thing? and what exactly is a “teacher professional development day” anyway? you’re just sitting around drinking coffee, eating doughnuts and ripping on your students and their parents, aren’t you?

i wish i could give you all a collective punch in the face. thanks for making my life more difficult. like my oldest son doesn’t already hate school, he’s going to be a nightmare tomorrow when he doesn’t want to go back. and now i get to face it all alone, to boot, because my husband is at work.

i hate you all.

screw you and the horse you rode in on,
one pissed-off mom
