Yes you read that correctly, I hate Fridays, well only really 8:40am and 3:25pm on a Friday. Why. Let me tell you.
As a single dad, I am lucky enough to collect my kids on a Thursday and have them until Sunday evening, of course they aren’t the reason why I hate Fridays, having to take them to school and collect them is the reason, and that is just to do with how other parents treat the school run. I park a little away so my children can go on their scooters. We watch other parents, just park where they like over residents drives, double parking, dropping kids off parking on the yellow lines, I just wonder where is the common sense. Yes, I normally need a strong coffee in the morning, I would never win mastermind, but I blooming well wouldn’t try to drive past parked cars as a car coming the other way is already trying to get through, or park on the other side off the road opposite another parked car leaving enough room for a pushchair to get through never mind another car.
I can understand you may be rushing to drop your kid off then get to work, but why does it seem so hard to not think off other children’s safety, children having to cross the road when you have a child yourself.
I don’t know what its like at your school, but when the parents come out of dropping the kids off, it soon turns in to Wacky Races.
And it’s the same at home time, watching parents park up get in and out off school with their kids, I think they must be doing some kind off rescue mission like the SAS.
Glad it’s over for today.
