Monday Morning Gripe

Today I'm registering Daughter for school, pre-K to be exact. I have all the necessary info collected: Social Security card, birth certificate, immunization record, life history and a urine sample. (Just kidding on those last two.) They're just going to have to take one of our utility bills as proof of residency, although if I didn't live in this godforsaken district I wouldn't have my kids going here. (More on that later!)

I refuse, absolutely put my foot down, about showing any kind of proof of income! I know how those bitchy slags women like to gossip. Besides, I know we don't qualify for their "it takes a village" handouts, and how much Husband makes is none of their fookin' business!

Okay, so here's a rant about the school district. The superintendent of this district that is in "fiscal caution" and is about to be taken over by the state of OH, not only got a tidy raise but also has a car allowance...for a Hummer!

Now look, I'm the last person to criticize what someone drives, but seriously, a Hummer? I'm practically rationing my fuel and trips (think WW II) with La Tahoe, and this woman (who gets her hair done at THE upscale salon in town) is getting an allowance, and probably a fuel card, for a Hummer? When this district is in such dire financial straits?

It boggles the mind. It's enough to make a preacher swear!

I don't know....this is all making me think really hard about just pulling the kids out and homeschooling.

A HUMMER?! How stupid!

Proof of income for public school? WTF? I would only think that would be necessary if you're applying for the free lunch program.
