Dear You,

Please don't ask me again to help you with your home decor project. Your DH has his own ideas about the project (even though he said he didn't have time to do it so you should handle it on your own). It seems he's found the time to veto every plan you've created/presented to him. Let's just make him CEO of this effort and I'll gladly find other things to do with my time. Please. And thanks.

Whew...that felt really GOOD!

You're an ass. New Orleans is NOT just "a big toilet bowl" flushed by Hurricane Katrina when the levees broke.

I am HORRIFIED that you would think such a thing, let alone verbalize it to me AT WORK. And did you somehow think I would agree with your rude and possibly racist (??) remark following the story I just finished about how much I love New Orleans and can't wait to visit again?

Again, sir, you are an ass.

Dear Hearing Clerk,

You are an asshole. Our office is not the size of a football field. EVERYONE can hear you complain about the Judge, me, and how unfair we are being. I DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR LEGAL OPINION. If you think we are wrong, go get a law degree, pass the bar, then come and school both of us. We welcome a good debate. Being around attorneys doesn't make you one by default. I am very respectful with you, but you are whittling away at my patience, and quite frankly, if the boss hears you, she's going to rip you a new one. People are coming up to me how you are saying, "I don't give a fuck who hears me," and when you stop yammering as soon as you see me, I know you are talking shit again. I'm not going to say anything to the Judge, but another Judge came up to me today and told me that next time she hears you talking crap, then SHE's going to say something to the Judge.

Dear DD,

You think turning 16 soon just entitles you to a license and the accompanying insurance...well sweetheart, it does not. If you don't have at least a 3.0, it will not happen. It also will not happen if you continue to be a royal pain.

If your purse is in the front seat and DS needs to sit there, I will move it to the back. You yelling at me for moving your crap that is my car will just make me mad. If you don't want it moved, don't leave it there!

I don't fell well tonight and have been trying to sleep. I keep getting woken up for various reasons. I take care of nearly everything for everyone, and I'd just like a little rest when I'm not feeling well...obviously that is too much to ask.

Dear step-daughters ex,
Why should you have any right to see the beautiful boy you have up? YOU chose to cheat on his mother through the ENTIRE pregnancy, YOU chose to not be there for them when they needed you. YOU made the decision not to be at the hospital for his appointment that could lead to your 11 week old needing serious surgery. YOU decided to move in with your tart. YOU aren't stopping her from threatening your son or his mother. You are scum, and don't deserve such an amazingly beautiful boy.

Just because we don't "get them often enough" is NOT a valid excuse for not knowing how! The procedure is part of YOUR job description in a field that you've been in as long as I've been alive!! Why it's not something that's part of your dept's yearly competences is beyond me! I'm busy & shoukd NOT have to show you how to do your job PLUS do mine!! And then when I asked you why a piece of equipment that YOU are responsible for is alarming and you say I don't know?? Give me a break!

Your son did not "use his hands to correct other's positions" and "show leadership", he punched another kid because he wanted that spot in line. And left a bruise that was visible for more than 24 hours. On a child of a single mother. Whose father likes to use every bump, bruise and illness as a reason why he shouldn't have to pay child support.

I've tolerated his bossy attitude. The fact that one day, the games the others are playing are "stupid" one day and he's an expert the next. I've shared food from my cooler with him, even though he takes without asking and is incredibly greedy. I pack multiple things of fruit snack and have told him multiple time 2 per customer, but he continues to grab 4 or 5 at a time and then lords it over the other boys. He has shoved my stroller out of his way just so he could get the "best" view of my iPad that my child is playing, waking my sleeping infant. He has shoved other boys off chairs to have the seat he wants. And this is what he does in the 15 to 30 minutes I see him 3 times a week. The stories about the crap he's pulling on the floor with the coaches and the other kids.

I reported him. I did. I had it when I heard that he snuck $3 in change from another mom (yes, she was sharing, but the other boys only took enough for 1 drink and ASKED) and about the bruise. The other two parents were afraid to report these things and the coaches had just sent out an email on citizenship. It was me. I am at the gym all the time, so I see and hear the crap. And my son has been at the gym longer and I have a polite relationship with the coaches, so they take me seriously. Especially since they know I have been defending MY child from yours for years. To the point where my son goes out of his way to NOT interact with yours. That's why his name wasn't involved in any of this.

I could have let the whole thing go. His apology to the kids and moms was "heartfelt" and full of tears. You list off a great list of how you were handling it. Parent walking him in 5 minutes before training each night, parent waiting inside at 8pm for him to leave, him bringing his own snacks, no taking from the cooler at all, no sitting with the other boys during snack. All great parenting ways to handle the situation. Many that I've used with my own at times. Unfortunately, you left before snack. He walk right up to the cooler, pushed another kid out of the way and took 3 things of fruit snacks. Not even 2 hours after his pretty little apology. The next training, he arrived 45 minutes early, by himself. He carried in an armload of snacks. He came over to my boys and in 20 minutes, insulted my son's choice of games, called him stupid for calling his device an iPod (yes it says iPhone, but its my old one and can't place calls. The kid has had a cell phone since he was 7, why would he call the device he plays games on a phone?), shoved his body between son and the other teammate I watch, asked all 3 boys if he could play their device, said "Maybe you should feed him more often" when The baby got excited when I pulled a bottle out. But what pushed me over the edge was the fact that he opened my cooler without asking. I called him out. You can yell at me all you want, but I told your son you told me no cooler and no interacting with the other boys. That he was being disrespectful to me by entering the cooler like that and I was done. From now on, if he is disrespectful to me, my baby or the boys I take care of, I would be reporting each incident to his coaches and you. That's my warning shot. I am sick of parenting your child. 2 practices. That's how many we've had since I reported your child. And 2 more days of BS. I hate how wound up this makes me feel. I hate this is the same battle over and over again for 4 years. I can not believe how little you care or show follow through. I am done.

Your child has no leadership abilities. He has poor citizenship. He shows his coaches and his teammates no sign of respect. Your son is a bully.

(Thank you. The whole situation is BS. But one of the reasons I am so respected by the coaches has been that I recognize this woman doesn't parent, doesn't care and doesn't listen. So I make polite conversation, ignore her backhanded insults and walk away. Doesn't mean she does still tick me off. And my poor husband can only handle so much of my venting at a time)

Just because you are retired and have all kinds of free time doesn't mean that I do.

And that also means it doesn't give you the right to just stop in whenever you want without calling first. I was busy and in the middle of projects on my ONLY day off with my husband.

Please stop coming over without calling first. One of these days you're going to knock and we are going to be doing something that is private!

Dear co-workers: PSA I'm in a mood today. I'm covering 2 jobs and it's our busy time of the year. I don't mind helping the office out - we're a team here but when the employee that is out on leave keeps updating their office calendar with all the social events they are attending when they are out on sick leave - well, that just doesn't sit well with me.

So....I'll get the work done but please, do not push a button on me today.....

Dear bosses,

We know you own the business and you think it's okay to have your dog (a Weimaraner) there. But she's not well-behaved enough for that and it's getting worse with your misguided attempts to "train" her. Customers are often frightened by her. The barking was bad enough. Then she started lunging at us when we came through the door. Now she's bitten at several of us and actually broken skin on two.


What's it going to take?

I have another one....

If I have to hear anymore about my co-worker buying ANOTHER pair of silver jeans for $82 I am going to go IN.SANE.

You'd think silver jeans were on par with the Second Coming.

Oh, same person talks non-stop about the new house she's building, her high end appliances, wine fridge, new furniture, new exercise equipment, the $1,000+ per month diet shakes so she could lose 15 lbs., new Coach purse, vehicle she bought son (who cannot drive yet), and how terrible it is she couldn't rent a vacation home this winter in Colorado to go skiing. I have no idea where she's getting the money; she and I started here at the same time and we do the same thing. She can't make that much more than I do and her husband is a police officer so he's not making like a CEO salary.

Oh and how cute her 15 y.o. DS and his 16 y.o. girlfriend are kissing each other and her with her head in his lap when they went on vacation. Yeah, she's gonna be a grandma real soon if she's not careful.

Now she's complaining because the people building a $1 million house next to them are in HI for a week and she has to come to work. Really?

Thanks, I needed to get that out before I scream out loud.

Dear clients:
Were you raised in a barn? It's bad enough that we have to share bathrooms, but did you NEVER learn not to pee on the seat? Why haven't you learned that toilet paper is there for a reason...it's not necessary to smear any of your poo on the walls or the door. I know you think it's so cute that you're 3 year old wants to go in by himself, but WE do not want to come behind your little darling and step in a puddle of pee!! Ladies, there is a trash can available for your discarded feminine hygiene products. Mothers, please do not leave your little darlings discarded diaper on the Koala changing table. There is a trash can RIGHT.UNDER.THE.TABLE for just that purpose. Avail yourself of it, please.

Dear judgy Mcjudgerson,

Listen, I understand you have an opinion and sometimes, I even agree with said opinion. What I don't agree with is the way in which you state it. You are not the end all be all of wisdom. You do not have the best of everything nor do you know the most of everything.

The words that fall out of your face are not all facts. Learn to communicate with some sense of humility and I think you will find most people will warm to you.

I really should create another thread just for Face Book:

Dear (marginal) FaceBook Friend:

Please stop using the social media equivalent of a billboard to thank your husband for unloading the dishwasher, congratulate your son on his honor society nomination, and your daughter on her prom court appointment. While we are at it, posting about what a great time you had tonight with the "very best girlfriends in the entire world" while the rest of your group are at home reading about it is just plain rude.

I don't give a crap how many miles you ran today and I certainly don't need my time line clogged with close up pictures of the mud on the back of your well manicured calves or the diamond #1 necklace nestled between the enormously fake boobs your hubby just bought for you...er, him.

Finally, if I never see another instagram photo of someone's dinner, it will be too soon.

Dear Helicopter Parent,

Your child can speak for herself. She has signed up for the before school program and if she no longer wishes to do it SHE can come tell me. I do not need you to speak for her.

She can tell me why she is late. YOU speaking for her only makes it sound like a lie. I do not bite, I do not yell, I simply need to know why she is late today.

You do not need to carry her backpack. She is in 5th grade. She is perfectly capable of carrying a backpack herself.

Thank you!

Dear women who are not my friends and at this rate, never will be:

Stop the gossipy madness! I can't talk to one of you without hearing in hushed tones about how terrible another is. Seriously, it's almost comical at this point how bitchy and backs tabby you all are. When I nod or make noises like "ummm" or say " that must be hard for you" I am not agreeing- I am trying to get out of here alive, lol.

Dunno about you all, but my kid just wants to dance. I could care less who doesn't like whose costume, or who doesn't show up for practice and still gets a good role, or whatever crazy ass thing you are bitching about. I just don't care. These rinky dink dance comps mean nothing, and the cheesy trophies and titles are just that- cheesy. You aren't going to put "Jr Miss Starpower" on a college application...well, maybe YOU are.

This is not the olympics, so knock it the Frick off and just let me be polite but aloof from you all.

A new dance mom who needs to introduce these ladies to the real drama: gymnastics!

Dear DD:
I got it, it is ok for you to go out with you loser bf until 2 in the morning, but working until 11pm on the other nights, is just making studying for school impossible. So go ahead and lose the scholarship that will show Me.

Oh where to start... lol

I don't think I should have to tell you 5 times. One "no" should be enough! You do it all the time and it drives me nuts. Thanks. ugh.

Put down your car keys. Put down your phone. Pick up your house.

Don't we just have the best neighbours around? They shovelled all the wet leafs off their driveway and put them on our lawn just so we could have the extreme privilege of picking them up! We can't thank you enough! Maybe you should move and share some of your neighbourly kindness with someone else. I think we have had just about enough!

Dear co-worker:

We work in Special Education. These kids are here because their disabilities are so severe that their LRE placement is in the most restrictive setting in our district.

So if they yell at you or are disrespectful, grow up and deal with it without getting pissed off. What part of ED do you not understand.

I get it. It sucks sometimes to be a verbal and sometimes physical punching bag, but think of how much it sucks worse for our students.

If you can't handle these kids, get out of the building.

Tribbey: I believe, as long as Justice Dreifort is intolerant toward gays, lesbians, blacks, unions, women, poor people, and the first, fourth, fifth, and ninth amendments, I will remain intolerant toward him! [to Ainsley] Nice meeting you

Dear 14 yo son and 9 yo daughter- Will you ever get along?

How long will this demon/nasty/back-talking thing that has taken over my 14 year old be here? another 2-3 years?

I'm not sure I can make it.

Dear son, just because you are married and have your own lovely family...I have to ask, when did I stop being your family too? When did I stop being your mother? When did you stop caring about my feeling & allow your wife to disrespect me with her sharp words. When did you stop sticking/standing up for me? If you wonder why I do not call or seek you out more often, I can say it is because I do not dare....I don't want to feel like I am imposing & interfering. I miss you so much my heart hurts. I miss my grand babies. I hate feeling like I have to hold my excitement & my desire to just sweep my lovies up & kiss their whole face, for fear of being interfering & ridiculous. I never want or have asked you to choose between us! Your wife needs to be the most important person in your life & your babies too...but I wish I was still a little bit important to you. I wish I had the same relaxed, comfortable, silly, fun, relationship with you & your wife as I do with your married sisters & their spouses. But I worry about saying the wrong things & making you two upset.
Whew! Thanks for letting say that! I have kept that in for while, because I knew I would NEVER say it out loud. Great post!

Dear "Friends" at church,
It would be nice to be invited once in a while. I know we're not bff, but to keep hearing about and seeing (F pics of your parties and never getting an invite really stings.

Don't call and ask us to volunteer to help with anything or for my husband to fix your car on the cheap for you. Since clearly, we're not friends.

Dear neighbor:

If you didn't want to take responsibility for your dog, why did you get one? You knew you didn't have a fence. That means you need to take your dog out ON A LEASH. Instead, you have just let the dog out the door many, many times. She gets into the neighbors' yards and is a complete pest, barking at them and chasing their cats up trees, so everyone in the neighborhood dislikes her except for us.

Oh, and that pen you built because you get tired of her being in the house? Not near big enough for her. She is so miserable in it that she barks all.night.long.

We're feeding her for you as a favor and have been keeping her inside for the last couple of nights, and she stays in the kennel during the night without making a sound. She is so happy to be with us and is a very loving dog.

If I could, I would offer to keep her, but I already have another dog that someone wasn't taking care of in the neighborhood. We (truly) can't afford to have another one. It makes me so sad.

Dear DD

You have talked about nothing but going to this particular school for this particular program for the last two years. I paid the $95 application fee, and we booked your portfolio review date.

For the love of all that is holy, DO THE PORTFOLIO WORK!!! You have 3 1/2 weeks to get all the sketches done that they ask for.

Now is not the time to decide maybe you don't want to go next year. See it through! If you get in, you get in. If you don't, we try again next year. But see it through!!

Don't essentially cut us out of your life because you're "too busy" and then call us up when you're in a crisis and expect us to bail you out. Call all those new friends of yours who are sooooo much more fun and who are taking up so much time you can't take even 10 seconds to return a tweet from people you've known your entire life and who you defriended on FB because you "can't take the time to read posts and messages". I'm sure they'll be eager to give up several hours to get you out of your crisis. Oh, what, no? They're not? Too bad so sad.
