Re: The RT Thread Part V
Yep, almost exactly the situations I had with teachers too. I heard those lines of what vacations were for also. Some (not all) teachers live in their own little worlds. We planned our vacations around the times of year we as a family could afford and also the weeks that my DH was allowed to be gone from work. He has 4 weeks however there are black out times. As my DH told one, he did not have the luxury of a job with 10 weeks off in the summer, 2 weeks at Christmas and 10 days at Spring break.

My sons teacher 5th grade, oh thats fine, he wont have any work to do in advance or make up. We are really done already. DD same year but in Kindergarten, 'well I wont have a report card ready for her. Me, I don't need one. The kid could read chapter books in kindergarten I didn't really need to read her report card. Plus it was strange, all it was not meeting, meeting or exceeding expectations. It would have been too tough for her to fill out. May 4 minutes tops, at best.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
