It's Thursday (well, really it's Wed. night, but, if you're reading this Wed. night, you'll just have to pretend), which means free therapy time courtesy of Kmama! It's the day that you can very sarcastically thank the irritations of the past week, and feel better when you're done. And, y'all better hold on to your britches, 'cause I'm back at work and I've got plenty to say!
1. Thank you, YS' school for messing up schedules. He was at the school for 3 1/2 hours trying to get it straight and waiting in line. Wait...there wasn't a line. Apparently the kids there haven't been taught how to wait in a line, and they didn't think to have a couple of faculty members helping to keep order. What I saw was a crowd of 15 year old kids standing near tables, inching their way up, in no semblance of a line whatsoever. By the time we got up to the counselor, she was ready to go home, quickly checked the schedule, and told YS to stop by her office first thing Monday morning to pick up his schedule. It wasn't until we left that I realized Driver's Ed. had been left off...and he gets his license in September.
2. Thank you, school system where I work, for making your employees waste 1 1/2 hours of the day at the employee fair. All I got out of it was some pens, and a backscratcher. I think our time could've been put to better use by being at our schools.
3. Thank you, coworker, for putting me down as a reference on an application without asking first. Heeeeell-oooo! It's common professional courtesy to ask before using someone as a reference. When the company called, I couldn't tell her anything because I'm not your supervisor and I've never seen you in therapy, or at your school. I probably wasn't a good choice to use as a reference, even though I've known you for 30+ years.
4. Thank you, presenter of one of the most boring inservices ever, for throwing down the handout in front of everybody, then, at the end of the day when you were assisting another presenter, snatching some handouts out of my hand that I was about to pass to the people in the back row. Very professional.
5. Thank you again, presenter, for thinking that we are complete morons who have no idea how to write present levels of performance. Oh, and a word of advice: If you're going to give us an example of how to write an IEP, make sure your example is perfect. There were statements in places they didn't belong as well as a misspelled word. Yep, that was a great example.
6. Thank you, certain someones in my household, who still can't grasp the concept of putting dirty dishes in the dishwasher. We've only been in this house 6 years, so I could see how you wouldn't be able to understand that when the light to the dishwasher is off, the dishes are dirty. You can put dirty dishes in there if the light isn't on.
