#1 Son told me this morning that he had to wait in the car for a little while before I dropped him off because he "wasn't late enough to have a note." Huh? He explained to me that if you show up at 7:47 (school starts at 7:45) with a tardy note the office ladies will give you an infraction. "And if you don't have a note?" "You get an infraction for being tardy." I, of course, told him that if they tried to infract him for having a tardy note, he should get me on the phone so I could explain to them exactly how many kinds of crazy such behavior was.
On the one hand, I can kind of see their point. Why take two minutes writing a tardy note when you could just get to class on time already. Little to do they realize that I have prewritten tardy notes on a pad in my purse (yes, he's late that often) so I can rip off a note and hand it to him while pulling into the parking lot. (Yes, I'm that good! ;) I may not be punctual but I'm organized.
Anyway, he didn't call, so I assume he either a) didn't get hassled by the attendance ladies or b) didn't want Mom to come to school and make a scene. Either way, I hope his day ends better than it started.
