Dropping my daughter off at school is probably one of the most stressful parts of my day. In fact it was so stressful at first that I now try to get her to school before the rush of parents.
The sad thing is that there are simple rules to follow. The drive through the parking lot is one direction. There are more than enough spaces to pull in drop off and let your kids out.
The exit is right turn only. There is a round-about maybe 100 yards down that will give you the opportunity to go the other direction.
And lastly, the main parking lot is for buses and teachers, not parents.
The rest is common courtesy.
But every morning I get frustrated with someone that thinks they are above the rules. Especially if it is before the crossing guards get there.
This morning a guy was going the wrong direction through the parking lot and after almost hitting me since he was not looking, gave me a look that I was supposed to watch out for him.
I was stopped dead in the lane as he tried to drive the wrong way until finally I beeped at him. If I had not beeped he would have actually hit me.
So I am reminded every morning of the scene in Mr. Mom.
Have a wonderful Friday! At least that part of my day is now officially over.
