Tired of this shit

I hate parents.  Well okay, not really.  But there are some mothers I go to school with who I could do without.  for the fourth time this year my schedule have been halted or stalled by another's child.  Don't get me wrong, I do get that having a child and going to school can be especially challenging, usually, not the way these ladies do it.

The lipstick mafia.  They have known each other from previous years.  They use the same daycare.  They arrange play dates and studying, all very cute, I'm sure.  They are very perfect.

I know, I sound bitter.  But I was studying until two, drove in here the piss pouring rain because I was third to go for my practical exam... and got fucking bumped because they have kids, and have a babysitter watching them, so would it be okay if they come first.  Two words, fuck you.  I could have spent and extra hour and a half in bed this morning, after not getting to bed until after two o'clock.  Of course I did not have a choice.  And I don't know if I could really say no and NOT look like the biggest prick on the planet.  But really, you are a student just like me.  Why should you get preferential treatment?  Ugh.  I'm going to go take a nap in my car, maybe I won't be such a bitch when I wake up.  *end rant*


  1. Naa mate, fair is fair and you shouldn't have got bumped, childcare or no childcare. They should have been given a different time or date if they couldn't wait, and that's not being cruel, it's being fair to everyone.
    Anyway, I hope you woke up in time Jamie!

  2. I get where they are coming from, but they tend to play that card TOO often in my book. When I was doing college MANY mothers tried that crap oh you don't know what it is like because you don't have kids yada, yada, yada.

  3. I am a single working mama... I don't play the mama card because it is not up to other people to work around the fact that I have a child. :)

  4. Not fair, like so many things in life.
    At work, people get on the plane and throw their luggage at me as if it is my job to put up in the overhead bin, and even though I have serious back injuries, I would feel like a jerk not to help, until one day, I realized it was just not fair. Those passengers were not the one who were stuck in bed all day, taking pain medication, I was. So now I just tell them I cannot lift 'cause I am pregnant. Works like a charm. When I told my gay male flight attendant friend about my technique, he said it was brilliant and he was going to try the same lol Cannot wait to see what people react to that.
    Basically my point is that everyone's life is more than what it just seems, so next time don't let the kids card work. Just be firm and explain that you don't have kids, but you have obligations too. Or tell them you have an appointment at the adoption office. That might make them feels like jerks.
