I want to rant about people who take advantage of others. A mom calls me, asks me to drive her kid home from school on Tuesdays. Every Tuesday. Why is it my responsibility to drive her home so that her parents can work? Because I don't work I am asked to step in for the parents who do work, and I am beginning to resent it.
So, yesterday, I drop this kid off, who, by the way, lives 10 miles out of my way, and the dad waves to me from the house.
If the dad was home, why didn't he take his own kid home? Why did I have to drive out of the way to take his own kid home? The mom is able to drive her home, but is taking her Master's and wants to study. Taxiing all the kids around takes up all my time, she tells me.
Reeeeally? Poor dear.
For my own sanity, I am breaking this off. The very reason I don't work full time is to be able to take my own daughter to and from school. My kid is well adjusted and bright. Her kid? Well, let's just say intensive therapy might be a start.
Rave-I am so worked up I can't think of anything positive to say. That's bad. I have to try harder. Let's see....
My gold star goes out to anyone who listened to that silly rant...!
