This week, as we are still up in NorCal, my brother asked if I could help get my nephew to school.
Who doesn’t have a car. Or a license.
I was too nice to agree to it. Like way too nice
First of all, what the hell is up with the parking/not parking/double parking/up on the sidewalk shit?!? Is this normal??
Please tell me this is unusual.
By the way, I’ve decided that MY kids are, as of THIS moment, getting an older friend who drives them to school LIKE I HAD IN HIGH SCHOOL before I get my license.
Then there’s the yelling and honking. Did I mention the up on the curb parking? I swear this is crazy. No, I didn’t get a picture. I’ll try tomorrow.
Then, there was the texting and walking.. Typical, right?
How about in the middle of the effing intersection?!? I watched 3 kids text and walk from the start of the crosswalk STRAIGHT ACROSS THE INTERSECTION FROM CORNER TO CORNER!!! . It was packed with cars. People were turning left. It was like the Twilight Zone.
embarrassed informed my nephew that if he ever did that, I’d make sure he NEVER got his license for which he rolled his eyes and then texted on his phone. I believe that’s “teen translation” for My aunt is so smart!. I also screamed through the windshield to GET OUT OF THE STREET, YOU HOOLIGANS!! but no one heard my cries to educate.
I’m sure my nephew with provide my personal PSA tomorrow to his friends.
Lastly, why is every teenager pissed off?!? Because they are at school? Where their friends are? They walk around like they just lost their dog and best friend in the same second. They are individual mobile country songs. Forgive me since I’m naive and still have a toddler and elementary schooler but GEEZ?!?! . Seriously, I just don’t get teen angst OR I was just a really happy kid.
Maybe my parents slipped me “happy” in my dinner. I don’t remember being that miserable. I was too busy twirling a flag.
Forget the friend driving them to school. None of my kids will grow up and be teenagers. Nope.
