A short and sweet post tonight. Partly because I completely FORGOT to write one today until now (7:15pm) and partly because I need to give props where props are due.
You see, I have dedicated several blog posts to the evil anarchists at my kids school who have claimed the drop off only zone as their personal parking lot while the rest of us shmoes shlub our kids across the street from the authorized parking area (simply because the drop off zone is always full of parked cars). You can re-read those rants here and here. And yes, I do need to get out more.
Anyhoo – for over 3 years this has been the bane of my morning existence and has driven me stark raving mad. I have written emails, made passive aggressive comments to the evil anarchists AND talked to the school secretary and principal about it. SEVERAL TIMES. I have even volunteered to don a vest and a whistle and make like the traffic cops at the airport. All to no avail.
And then, a few weeks ago our school got a new principal. This woman knows how to kick a** and take names let me tell you. And 2.5 weeks later there ain’t no entitled parents parking in that drop off zone anymore. She literally stands outside every single morning and gets it DONE and in no uncertain terms does she buy any excuse from any parent.
I think I might be a little afraid of her actually…. 🙂
Anyways, to the new principal and all the other amazing gals in my life who are kicking a** in many ways, shapes and forms I salute you!
