Just Shoot me
Yesterday was my last "first" day of school - and I can honestly say I don't mind one little bit. It was bloody hell. and even muttering "fuck 'em" or "pee on 'em" didn't help one little bit.
From 7:00 am till 1:30 (when I just walked out for a break) I didn't stop. Parent after parent came to see me - and mostly with really stupid questions. (and I wonder why some of our kids don't get it!!) I was back in my office by 3 and then it all went downhill. I had to account for over 100 kids when the bell rang. 12 kids went missing............... 12 !!!! In my whole career I have NEVER had 12 kids go missing on the first day - on ANY day!!!
By 4:30 I was back in my office fending off more stupid questions from parents keeping one eye on the clock cause the showing was scheduled for 5:30.
At 5:20 my cell phone rang. I answered to hear an alarm going off and I could barely hear the voice over the noise. It was my real estate agent. She managed - god knows how - to set off my alarm. I was trying to tell her how to cancel it ... it wasn't working - so I figured I was wrong. I grabbed my purse and was almost shouting at her over the noise to tell her I was on my way home and would be there in 10 mins. Just then she managed to shut the damn thing off. When I hung up from her my phone rang immediately. My alarm company phoning to tell me there had been an "event" at the house. Oh yeah really??!!! (rolling eyes)
Finally at 6:00 I came home and collapsed.
If the first day is any indication of how my year is gonna go................. just shoot me now ok???
