I teach in a primary school. Last year's grade 7's were the Class from Hell and Shannon was one of the worst. She was dumb as a shovel of rocks, mouthy, insolent, skanky and with a particular talent for saying breathtakingly rude and entitled things. Think Paris Hilton without the looks. She has now moved onto high school and we are all luxuriating in her absence.
Anyway, Shannon's little siblings are still here. Class lists went up yesterday and teaching started today. Shannon's mum took some exception (no-one is real clear what) to the class Siblings had been assigned to.
Yesterday was spent shouting at the Admin assistants that she'd written a letter about what class she wanted Siblings to go into, why weren't they in that class, everyone was mean to her and everyone else got what they wanted so it must be that the school was picking on her. Today she advanced to saying the same thing to the principal, at much greater volume and with far more obscenity. Because if you say if loud enough, often enough and swear enough, it must be true!
Anyone want to bet where Shannon got her attitude from? This woman is now threatening to withdraw Siblings and enrol them in another school if we don't give her what she wants.
Oh please, oh please, oh please...
