Dads Don’t Belong in Car Line

Noah’s first day back at school

Would someone please tell me where the fathers were during car line orientation. I don’t think a single one of them was present.

I don’t know that it would be a problem if they would simply look around and watch what the other cars were doing. But, they seem to be oblivious. If you’re new to car line, pay attention. It’s simple. My kid is just 3-years-old. I learned pretty darn early, CAR LINE IS A SERIOUS THING. You don’t mess around with the flow of car line.

My husband came with me to “pick up” from school today. I was driving. I saw a car parked the long way, going THROUGH the car line so everyone else had to make their way around it. It wasn’t even facing the same direction as the rest of the cars. I turned to my husband and said, “That’s a dads car.”  “How do you know?” he asked. “There’s no one in the car.”  “It’s a dad. Trust me,” I said. We soon saw the owner of the car come out of the school and hop in the driver’s seat. Low and behold! It was a dad! “How did you know?” my husband asked. It’s simple: Men do NOT pay attention to the car line. They enter the wrong way, they don’t go with the flow of traffic, don’t yield to those they should yield to and they park where they shouldn’t park.

So, a note to dads everywhere: If you dare enter the car line, please pay attention to those around you. Maybe even ask your wife how it’s done. Whatever you do, DO NOT mess up car line flow. You will be the receiver of the “stink-eye” at all school functions.
