Dear Overzealous Teacher on Parking Lot Duty at my Daughter's School,
I understand that your job is to help guide parents to the appropriate drop off location and keep the kids in the parking lot safe. And I am on your side. I really am. But when I pulled into the parking lot of the school this morning, I was looking at the sign above your head, not at you to determine whether or not I could get away with dropping my daughter off at the wrong, but possibly, more convenient location.
I appreciate the fact that you started frantically waving your arms at me in order to keep the other children safe. However, such frantic arm waving did nothing more than embarrass yourself, as well as frighten those children, and possibly the other teachers around you.
And just to clarify, when I slowed down my car, it was to avoid collision with the other cars in the drop off lane. It was completely unnecessary for you to walk alongside my car, continuing to flap your arms uncontrollably. I was forced to stop by the line of cars in front of me, not by some petulant desire to thwart your quest to humiliate yourself.
Thank you for your concern over the safety of the students. Next, time, however you may want to take into consideration those within striking distance of your hysterical demonstrations. I belive them to be in more danger of you, than of me.
A Concerned Parent
