There are two carpool lines and because my daughter is picked up in the second carpool line we have to sit through the first line in order to get to our daughter’s line which is in the back of the school. Sometimes people in the first line leave so much space between their cars that it holds those of us that we get frustrated that we can’t get through. While I’m not bothered by the waiting, (I am typically very patient while driving and non-agressive) my husband was apparently impatient with the driver in front of him who he thought *could* but wasn’t moving up enough to give him space to get through to the second line. I understand that it can get frustrating but apparently my husband should work on being patient. The driver who was in front of my husband when he ‘cut’ through, honked at him and I guess she told the Director what he did. He’s the only Dad who drives a brand new Ford Mustang so I think he’s an easy target. 😉
If I’d have answered the phone when the director called this morning (I was in a meeting and she left a message) I would have been really embarrassed as I am am the opposite of an aggressive driver.
What I Advise to my Husband about the Carpool Line:
- Don’t get impatient in the carpool line.
- Don’t mess with another driver in the carpool line. He/she could pull out a sippy cup and splash juice all over your car. Not the Mustang! Yes, the Mustang.
- Don’t rush the person in front of you in the carpool line.
- Relax.. it’s important to be happy and calm when our daughter gets in the car. Don’t let a little hold up, get you all worked up.
I would hate for something like what recently happened with Cecily Kellog’s daughter, to happen to our daughter. While I feel that her daughter’s preschool not allowing her to come back to school was ridiculously unwarranted, I guess it happens and that ‘s a reality. My daughter loves her school and I want to keep it that way!
