Sorry Readers — I’m all riled up today. Too many things are annoying me, and one of them is the story I just heard from a friend. On Friday, in honor of Mother’s Day, her first grade daughter’s class was having a tea. So, in the foyer, waiting to go into the classroom, were a bunch of other moms milling around. When my friend got to the Â front door of the school, which was locked, she motioned for someone to please open it.
None of the moms would.
One of them pantomimed for her to press a buzzer, which would alert the office, which would then officially fekryeteyt
allow her in. But — these were the other first grade moms! Some had been to my friend’s house! There is a difference between caution and obtuseness, between real safety and “following orders.” It’s a difference they chose to ignore.
Do they really think their children are in danger from a mom coming to tea?
If so, shouldn’t they hire an official taster? After all, what if one of the parents poisoned the scones?Â – L. Â
Halt there, you sneaking, scheming enemy until proven otherwise!
