How children listen and how parents follow directions are in direct correlation with each other. (Gasp)
How do I know this? I know because I have had to deal with rogue
Here are the instructions (pretty much word for word-since I was actually listening) given by the School
When dropping off or picking up your kids, please do not enter the drive clearly marked FOR BUS USE ONLY. This clogs up the flow for the bus drivers and sends them off schedule. A seperate drive has been reserved for all car pick-ups. Enter this driveway where a single line of cars will form. Here you can drop off or pick up your child when you get to the marked area near the building. Please do not park and get out of your car to enter the school to retrieve your child as a special lot has also been reserved for this. I know if we all work together this will work very smoothly...
Seems simple. No?
Well, this is what rogue A-HOLE parents heard:
Blah blah dropping off or picking up your kids,I may have to hurt some people.
please enter the drive marked FOR BUS USE ONLY.
These signs declaring otherwise are only a suggestion and you may do whatever you need to do in order to make sure that you get home in time to catch the tail end of Oprah.
Blah blah Don't send hats or coats with your kids to school either, this IS Northern MICHIGAN and all -but really, if your kids get sick they will just build immunities for whatever they may catch the next time they are not appropriately dressed for the weather. Or the next time they lick their teacher. ( Yeah you - Bryson Miller.) You are actually doing them a favor. Kudos on your fantastic parenting! Blah blah
Also, Even if there is a single file line of cars waiting please feel free honk your horn alot then to park your car right in the middle of it. While you are at it, why dont you : enter the school,visit your child's classroom, use the facilities, argue with the secretary about your truant son's latest unexcused absence, and basically stop traffic for everyone else. Those other parents time is not nearly as valuable as yours, so by all means, do as you wish. Blah blah if we all do this, you will be helping out not only your precious children but the entire school system. Blah.
