Today was actually a really good day. Nothing exciting happened. I didn't win any money, I didn't lose any weight, I didn't have a great hair day...but it was peaceful. It was productive and calm and everything went the way it should. It wasn't too hot or too cold. It was the kind of day I dream about but don't often experience. Then I went to pick the kids up from school.....
About 2 months ago Mr 6 gets in the car and tells me A called him a tiny, little bitch (I think that's what he said anyway, it was a while ago now). A is in Miss 11's year level. I could see her sitting in the grass and I was in my car which was a little distance away so I yelled out to her (yelled out to her, not AT her). I yelled out 'A'. She goes 'what?' I said 'did you call Mr 6 a tiny little bitch?' She said 'no' so I said 'look don't call him names and just stay away from each other ok?' Then I drove off. No big deal. Forgot all about it.
The next day C (an absolute instigator who is always trying to start fights. I know why she is the way she is. Her mother is an absolute piece of trash who just had another baby with another different man so C doesn't get a lot of attention. She's only 11 and I feel sorry for her but I find it hard not to be annoyed by the things she does) told Miss 11 that Mr K was going to ring her mum (me) and that I was going to be in a lot of trouble because I yelled at A. Miss 11 told me about it when she got home and I said Mr K can ring me all he wants because I didn't yell at A, I only asked her if she was calling my son names. I never got a call from the teacher and once again forgot about the whole thing. It seemed ludicrous to me anyway and I told Miss 11 that C was just trying to cause arguments between all the girls again.
So today I pull up at the school behind a white car. The woman in it is screaming and yelling at Mr 16, all I can hear is F this and F that. Mr 16 told her to F off and flipped her off which I would not normally approve of but am so proud that he was sticking up for himself against this deranged woman. Then she yelled out 'And tell your mother she's a slut.' I was taken aback. I had no idea who this woman was. If you knew me you'd know I'm far from a slut. I'm always wearing jeans and baggy sweaters and in the last 16 years I've been with 2 men so if I'm a slut then I'm the lamest one I know. And why this woman felt the need to say this to my 16 year old son shocked the hell out of me. I beeped the horn at her. She yelled out F off and flipped me off out her car window. I walked over to her and said 'whats your problem?' The ranting and raving that ensued told me that she was A's mother and that my kids were picking on her kids and blah blah blah. I told her that I would tell her what happened if she just calmed down and stopped talking over top of me. She shut up so I told her exactly what happened. I told her that her kids had been picking on mine and that I didn't yell at A, I only asked her if she said what Mr 6 said she said. Then she told me that Mr K had told her that I was swearing at and abusing A! I was livid. I couldn't believe that a teacher would straight out lie about me. I had no reason to believe this woman wasn't telling the truth because she would have had no reason to be so upset otherwise. Also I think she works at the school and she had to have known I would confront the teacher so I didn't even contemplate the thought she may be lying. I told her it was a total lie, I don't swear at and abuse 11 year old girls. Then a teacher came over and asked her if she was ok! Like I was attacking her! She was the one swearing, she was the one abusing my child and she gets asked if she's ok! I couldn't believe it. I told the teacher we were just having a conversation. He told us to move on. I told him that we were on public property that had nothing to do with the school and we would move on when we were finished. He starts ranting and raving that we can't be swearing in front of children. He was speaking to me by the way because I apparently used the word 'ass', not speaking to her who up until 2 seconds before was using the F word like a sailor. Also there were not a lot of children out there, most of them were mine and hers, and the kids at this school know more swear words than I do. I said to him that we could've finished our conversation in the time it took him to rant that and continued on. I told her the problem could be solved if she told her kids to stay away from mine and I would tell my kids to stay away from hers. She agreed, I got back in my car.
So I'm sitting there waiting for the kids to put their bags in the boot and the teacher comes up level with my window and starts staring at my kids in the back seat! I said 'Do you need something?' He said no. So I said well what are you looking at? He goes nothing so I said well move along then. He walks off just staring at me then goes have a nice day. I fought the urge to flip him off.
This is a couple of days later now, I didn't get to finish. Anyway the teacher was on camp until the next day so the next day I went up to him and asked him why he was saying stuff about me when he didn't even know me and he wasn't even there when the incident happened. He said he hadn't said a word to A's mum! She just outright lied! She was standing up the road and when she saw me talking to Mr K she couldn't get in her car fast enough. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with people. Are all people like this or am I living in Crazy Town?
