Looking at a six year old and going, "Wait, I thought college started today!" is funny. Asking, "Shouldn't they be in school?" is going to come across as nosy and/or passive-aggressive (or passive-snarky), even if you do it with a smile. YD a retort for your poor judgement, though FYL for the coincidence of the fire. @6: Their house burnt down the night before, they're going to be a little traumatized. I think they deserve the day off.

If you said it in a funny tone, she is just a bitch to not realize it. I understand she went through a traumatic experience but that doesn't give her the right to be mean to you. I prefer a friendly staff wherever I might go, unlike everyone else here according to their comments.

I know 37. One time I was volunteering at a saturday school. A kid walks in literally 1 and half hour into the 4 hour school day. He was the only one that late. I jokingly said,"A little late, aren't we?" and his dad flipped out and started ranting on about how the roads were slippery and it was dangerous. I feel you OP.

37- Have you ever had your house burn down? Mine burned down less than six months ago and it's hard to joke around when it happens, I missed school for a week because we were looking for somewhere to stay. She's not a bitch for not joking around, she's human. FYL OP, you didn't know.

what he meant is that he doesnt care about the OP and his slightly awkward situation. I like to think that everyone cares even a little about a house burning down.

Geez, why does it matter to you if the kids are in school or not. I know you 'tried' to be funny, but I hate people like that.

Kind of agreeing. I mean, I get trying to be funny, but that WASN'T funny. It was just nosy. That being said, I've been through a housefire and it's just awful, so F THEIR lives.

i agree. they don't have clothes to wear to school but they have clothes to wear to the grocery store? i know some people like their children to dress nicely for school, but if your house did burn down why would you care what your kids wear for one day? they need an education.

but if ur house burned down would you want to go back to school the next day? it would be a bit traumatising having all of your belongings just go up in flames

I totally agree. They deserve more than a day off. I was just pointing out that the "nothing to wear" comment is probably untrue. She should have said, "Our house burnt down last night," and left it at that.
