The Seniors at Squirrel's High School had an All Night Party scheduled at an area restaurant tonight from Midnight until 5 am. Sort of a "Midnight Madness Party" for them.
They were to be dropped off at school at 10:30 pm to be driven to their destination by Midnight. On school provided busses.
Pooldad loaded up the Squirrel at 10:20 to drive her over to the school only for me to receive a recorded message from the school at 10:30 stating that the event had been cancelled.
[thump.thump.thump. ::sound of my head hitting the keyboard::]
Someone forgot to order the BUSSES to take 300 kids on a Midnight field trip.
A once a year, Senior field trip. [i.e. a SPECIAL trip]
The trip was for MIDNIGHT - who forgets the only field trip of the year that occurs IN.THE.MIDDLE.OF.THE.NIGHT?
A paid in advance Senior field trip. [i.e. a $$$ trip]
That someone FORGOT.TO.ORDER.BUSSES.TO.TAKE.THEM.
And before anyone asks - No, we weren't allowed to drive our own children to the restaurant. That would be a "liability" tadpoles, dontcha' know?
I swear this is the one time I wish my blog wasn't semi-anonymous - because I would love to tout the incompetence of the person that is responsible at the school who FORGOT TO ORDER THE BUSSES.
ETA: I just realized I can go over to FACEBOOK and be un-anonymous [is that even a word? oh who cares - I am still simply amazed at all of this.] ::Off to FB...[mumbling] forgot to order the freak'n busses...stupid person...busses...dangit...::
