Thursday Thoughts

  • There's this school bus that I often encounter on the way to work in the morning. It pulls into oncoming traffic (okay, that's an overstatement... he pulls into the other lane where there is sometimes another car coming) and expects that people just stop so he can back into a road to turn around... umm... since when do school busses have that right? I get the whole red/yellow lights and stopping for kids getting on/off... but pulling in front of people so he can turn around? So not feeling it. Not to mention he turns around on a road that makes a big horseshoe and reenters the same road 20 feet away... why the heck doesn't he just go around the road rather than being a jerk?
  • Every morning when I get to school there are at least two parents parked in the bus/fire lane at school. Parked. With their car running. While they walk their kid into school (which is about 200 yards to the entrance of the school). I get there early enough that there are no buses coming, this is the morning care set coming in... is it bad that I really want to move their car ten feet over into an actual parking spot? Like I have to restrain myself from doing it every morning. Partially to mess with them, and partially because they're being stupid... not even lazy, because the parking spots are equidistant from the entrance as the fire lane. 
  • The week after a school vacation? Sucks. I'm so not feeling this week and more than ready for it to be over. The kids are antsy. I'm tired. And the week is just dragging like crazy. Not to mention that we're hitting that time of the school year where things get hectic, crazy and there are a lot of extra responsibilities and things to get done. Not. Fun. And not conducive to blogging. Thus my lame thoughts. 


  1. The second one would drive me nuts!! I would totally get in their cars and move them...

  2. I'd probably have to yell at those parents!

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. Is it mandatory now to walk your kid into school?? I have heard of other people talking about doing this daily, but when I was in elementary school(I'm 26) my parents just dropped me off at the door and I walked by myself to my classroom.

    Stopping by from the link up.


The best part of blogging is hearing from my readers, so share your thoughts and ideas... or just say "hi"!
