I’m going to complain for a minute or two.
Why are some people so nasty? What benefit do they get from making others feel so horrible?
What happened to common courtesy? I know I’ve ranted about this before, but I keep seeing it run rampant and it’s making me nuts. Is it just this area? Is it really so hard to sit through the entire 1 hour concert? Do you really have to come in late or leave early, in the middle of a performance??
Children these days don’t know how to live without their cell phones. Mobile phones are the new pacifiers. It is possible to go somewhere without your phone. Millions of people have grown up without mobile devices and we somehow survived. Unplugging yourself for awhile isn’t a bad thing.
For Pete’s sake, or your own, if you are constantly missing one practice for another event, or if you can’t adhere to schedules you made for yourself, take a look and see what you can do to not be so overloaded! Little Johnny will be just fine if he doesn’t take art, judo, soccer, violin, modern dance, swimming, debate team and softball every week!
And if you somehow can keep all the balls in the air with Little Johnny’s schedule, (good for you!!) please don’t be ugly to the people who are trying their best to keep you apprised of what’s going on in each activity. Take some time to read what they had to say to you and don’t assume that you can simply rearrange their entire schedule to suit your own, because guess what… you and every one else had the same idea!!
Whew.. ok, I think I’m done for a bit!
