Huh? Check the Facts, Sir...

We love the Eldest's Principal. He is a kind man and very involved in all aspects of the day to day goings on in her school.

Unfortunately he seems to be a little overworked and/or his admin. asst. sucks.

We received a pre-recorded message from him last night announcing a meeting for NHS parents and students at the school in the upcoming week.

He let us know the importance and the date: Mon. 9/22 and the time: 8:30 pm.

Well...Monday is not the 22nd, Tuesday is. And 8:30 is awfully late for a meeting at the school.

I checked the website and discovered that the meeting is actually Mon. 9/14 at 6:30 pm.

Huh? A week off, with the wrong date AND a two hour time drag? Curious.

I called my fav' front office lady, Leslie, to ask and she laughed and said she would just have to check into it as it seems this wouldn't be the first time.

I know in the scheme of things that this is minor, but how can you get EVERY detail of the meeting wrong except the purpose of it?

Oh my gosh. That would drive me batty. I like to use the words, "highly irritated". But I'm certain you are cool as a cucumber??

You always make me laugh Yum - no-actually Pooldad and I fought over who heard what on the message last night...and I was irritated because I heard right, dangit.

Leslie always makes me laugh too - so no harm no foul AS LONG AS THE WEBSITE IS CORRECT.

Then this cucumber is going all 'splodey!

What if they called a meeting and nobody came? In my opinion, that would be a perfect meet up.

Sounds like me... happens all the time. I have a hard time keeping dates and times straight - but don't tell Carl. He thinks I have my sh!t together! LOL

SkippyMom said...

Thanks for the laughs! I really needed them today.

Rudee I seriously think no one would've shown up, considering.

And Marni - you have your stuff together, no worries. We have 'em all fooled ;)

I feel sorry for this poor man. Can you imagine what his job is like? Being in the school all day with those kids and then having to go back at night for meetings? The wrong date and time was probably a subconscious slip - he didn't want any of you there! ;)
