Getting Ugly

No, I'm not referring to how I look today, I'm talking about the teacher strike.

The kids' bus driver called me to tell me some of the stuff that had gone on this morning, leaving me in tears. Then my friend calls this afternoon to report on what really happened at the one elementary school she went to to join the picket line.

She basically said it's ugly. There was yelling. She almost got run over. She also told me that I didn't have to join her tomorrow if I didn't think I could handle it.

And truthfully, I don't think I could. Does that make me a chicken? I support the teachers, but I have to admit that yelling at the bus drivers goes a hair over the line. Oh, I'd yell at the scabs, but I draw the line at yelling when there are kids around. That's just me.

Say it, go ahead. I'm a chicken shit.
