Oldest daughter is going to be a junior this year. She now has her own car, so she can drive her own ass to school at 5:30 am for marching band. Ok, I actually never drove her that early, husband took her on his way to work, because he goes to work that early. Still.
Yes, there are buses, but none of them come around at 5:30 am.
Today was the day when incoming juniors went down to the
Pay. For a parking pass. In high school.
When I was in high school about 86 years ago, we had no parking passes. We had a student parking lot. If you had a car, you parked in the lot. Period. End of story.
Last year, the parking passes at daughter's high school were $30. I told daughter that I would pay for her yearbook, if she would pay for her own parking pass. She agreed, and went to the media center today with $80 in cash. However, she did not come home with a parking pass. Why? Because they have raised the price of a parking pass to $50. Fifty. Dollars. American. And she didn't have enough money with her.
Um, High School? Wtf? I can only assume that you have re-painted the spaces in the lot with gold-flecked paint. Either that, or this is just one more attempt by the public school system to f**k me up the a**. I'm going to guess it's the latter. Do I at least get a kiss with that?
Do you think that having the word "foreplay" in my title will get me more traffic? Again, if you're here because you Googled "foreplay", leave me a comment. And I'll send you a three-page email on what you're doing wrong.
