It’s the fourth week of school around these parts and according to my calculations, it’s faaaaaar too early in the school year for the after-school madness I’ve witnessed from my fellow parents.
Listen, I’m a reasonable woman. I’ve been late for school pick up. I’ve rolled my eyes at slow walking kiddos crossing the street on their way home from school. I’ve been there, but here’s the thing: We don’t get to be dangerous jerk-offs when it comes to picking our kids up from school. We just don’t.
I read Devan’s list of the 8 biggest peeves she encounters during after-school pick up and I was like yes x 8. The difference between Devan and I is that she’s way nicer about this stuff than I am. I’m seriously pissed at the behavior of some of these selfish parents. So pissed that I developed my own set of after-school pick up rules and plan to go all vigilante justice with ‘em.
Check out my totally reasonable after-school pick up rules and let me know if I missed any in the comments below!
Sound off my fellow renegades! What other after-school pick up rules should parents be following?
