Sad State of Affairs

What kind of world are we living in? When I pick up my boys from school, do you know what the first thing I ask them is? It's not, "how was your day," or, "what did you learn in school today."
I ask them, "did you get any redirection slips?" all the while my stomach is in knots, preparing for the blow of yet another note. That's not even the worst part! When I ask if they have received a slip and they tell me no, my response is, "Are you sure?" My poor little guys. They really are pretty good kids, and I don't think the Hurricane deserved about 95% of the notes he's gotten.
Stupid school and stupid rules! 14 days of school left. I can't wait for it to be over!

Redirection slips?!? What is that?!?

...and no, I don't watch Laguna Beach either.

It's not about Laguna Beach! There is plenty of drama though!
They get "redirection slips" when they do something bad. If they get three in one month, they don't get to go to the all school party at the end of the month. Hurricane has never been to the "Fantastic Fun Day." Stupid school!

UFA said...

You mean if they had that when I was in school, I would have had an excuse for missing that stuff?!?

...what a Laguna Be-otch...

UFA said...

Maybe in a couple of years you'll be able to tell Hurricane that Uncle UFA said, "Chicks dig socializers".

...that oughtta get him to the show. :D
