Dear Teacher’s Aide for Daughterofmine,

11 Mar

Yes, I am avoiding you. I KNOW that I owe you $12 for the school picture you gave me when you assumed I would be a responsible adult and pay you back. I realize it has been almost two months and I have told you repeatedly that “oops, I don’t have cash, I’ll bring it in the morning! I’m so sorry!”.

The truth is I NEVER have cash. I also NEVER remember that I owe you money until I am walking daughterofmine to class. I’ve also told you I would bring a check, which you were so gracious to accept…but I can’t find my checkbook. I sort of blame you for expecting these archaic methods of payment. Doesn’t your coin purse take cards? You shouldn’t assume I will have time to stop somewhere and get cash….Okay fine, it’s not your fault.

Either way, this has sort of turned into a fun game for me. I walk in, realize I have forgotten the 12 bucks AGAIN, then start peeping around corners and trying to look too busy to stop and chat. “HI THERE, Can’t talk! I’m in a terrible hurry!”. It’s sort of a rush, ya know. I’m suddenly this sly villain in skin-tight leather pants, fleeing from authorities and shouting “DAMN THE MAN!”.

Anyway, sorry for that, you are a super nice lady. I will bring your money tommorrow…again…errr…if I can remember.

Thanks, and sorry, or whatever would be appropriate to say here,

    Ok, I soo get this post more than you will ever know. However, I don’t thing after having two kids 17 months apart I can pull off the whole thight leather pants thing! 🙂

      Oh, I totally couldn’t pull it off. They would probably require surgical removal. BUT – when it’s in your imagination, you can give yourself whatever body you want. In this case I was probably rockin’ Selma Haek’s curves. hehe

    That was really funny! Anyway 12 buck isn’t a very big amount you should arrange for that much anyway.But the whole narration was hilarious.

    Do you have a change jar you could bring her? Just kidding, don’t do that.
    But teacher’s aide’s don’t make much money, so maybe you can pawn something. Or make a withdrawal.

      It IS a private shcool, so I think she may make a little more money than normal. Either way I finally took her a check. How embarassing…really. hehe.
