Today, I went to my little cousin's school to pick her up and it happened to be my old elementary school. I saw my old teacher and went up to say hi, and after a few minutes she goes "Aren't you the girl who's dad always came in drunk on parent's day?" Nice to know that's how I'm remembered. FML

I'm glad they understand.

but hell, gotta go where the money is.

You work to make $$$ no? besides, after say, 5-10 years of teaching snot-nosed brats who don't respect you for shit anyways, you really think it's _still_ their passion?

Odds are they're stuck in their situation and spending all they can on lotto tix.

please, money spins the world.

Otherwise, they rely on another source of _real_ income.

If they honestly still enjoy it, then that's a blessing, but work was never meant to be fun.

..hence the name.

It wasn't a stab, most high-paying jobs don't allow holidays or most of the days teachers get off.

What I meant was, combined with doing something you like, there's actually a plus side to taking the lower-paying job.

in all honesty, I've realized my time is worth more than my money nowadays.

Money comes and goes but...time, you'll never get back.

I can understand drinking on parents day. Primary schools almost always make you sit on those little childrens chairs, and if it's one of those parents days where all the classes put on performances it can get pretty tedious. My daughters school actually sells beer at the school functions like that. Anyways, maybe she only remembered that because she was concerned about you, so it's kind of nice in a way.

Still a bit harsh, though. "Hey, wasn't your dad a hopeless drunk?" isn't really the number 1 recommended way to say "So, how are you doing now?"

you must be the embarassing drunk single mom who tries to hit on the male teachers and invite them back to your trailer while your poor kid eats Chef Boyardee in the next room

I don't drink. I'm simply mentioning alcohol is often served even at school functions in Europe where we don't abuse it like Americans. Quit being so cut and stalking me.

Count yourself lucky, I'm not even allowed back into my elementary school!
I don't see an fml here, does anybody in that school mean anything to you now that you no longer attend? I think not.
