Excelling at Nothing

Posted on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 8:42 AM

To the parents of kids in elementry school, I feel as though I should tell you something. Excel programs suck. Maybe not all, but most. I have seen children in shorts during the winter. I have seen no hats, no mittens, no scarfs. I have seen no jackets. I have seen screaming in the hallways. I have seen standing on the tables. I have seen fist fights. I have wet hands and feet that nobody cares about. I've seen kids in trees and kids throwing rocks. I've seen bullying. I've seen kids being dragged down hallways by other kids. I've seen no sunblock. I've seen no attention given to your child and I feel I should let you know this. When it comes to child care, you get what you pay for... and next year Excel will be free. Think about that.
