We asked the parents of one of the students to come to school today. Their son wasn't wearing the proper uniform. There wasn't really anything wrong with his uniform, except that it was for a girl. Why? Why? WHY?!

I wish to nominate my preschool principal as the newest member of the Homer Simpson Duh? Society. She told me that her husband had complained to her about my being a snob. It seems that he had seen me in the mall on several occasions and I had totally ignored him, no hi, hello or how are you. I was so shocked I didn't know what to say. I had never met her husband and I had absolutely no idea how he looked like! Come to think of it, how in the world did he know who I am? Does she expect me to talk to every guy I see just in case it may be her husband? He could have at least introduced himself when he saw me on those occasions so I would have known who he was.

We're having exams this week, which translates to tons of sick kids coming to school. I can't understand why parents would sent a seriously ill son/daughter to school just because it's exam week.

Yesterday a boy threw up right outside the school gates.His mom kept on insisting that he was okay while helping him to stand. There was also another kid who had chicken pox and her mom said she had rested for two days so she was strong enough to take the test. Today we had around four kidswho all had high fever, chills and sunken eyes.

It makes you wonder if these parents care at all. Last year a parent sent her daughter to school with german measles even though she knew that her teacher was pregnant.

I call it "Attack Of The Parents With Weird Logic".

Today, a mom came to the office and wanted us to replace her son's school bag. It seems that on the way to school, the bag had gotten dirty and it was our responsibility. Duh?

Yesterday, a mom gave birth in front of the school. She was going into labor early this morning, and instead of going to the hospital, she thought it would be best if she brought her daughter to school first. When they reached the gates of the school, the baby literally popped out.

Last week, another mom wanted me to play dentist and pull out her daughter's rotting tooth.

When I think I've seen it all, another attack occurs.

Last school year we had a mom who brought her son to school three days in a row despite the fact that the nurse had told her to let him rest at home. The mom then told us that she had consulted several doctors and they all said chicken pox was not contagious, and that the airconed classroom would do him good.

This afternoon an angry mom came to the school with her son. In between tears and screams she said that they were on their way to the hospital since her son had broken his right arm earlier in school that day. She demanded that the school compensate her for what happened.

The boy's teacher was really surprised. She told the mom that her son had tripped and had a small scratch on his arm. But that was all that happened.

The mom started screaming again and asked what kind of school would allow a child to trip. She also complained that his older sister who also studied in our school had tripped a few years ago.

Her son was seated in the corner of the office, and it looked like he was getting bored. His mom had been screaming at us for more than 15 minutes. So, using his right hand, he took out a yoyo from his pocket and started playing with it, using the arm his mom said he had broken.

Needless to say, his mom decided that they didn't need to go to the hospital after all.
