I have changed names to protect the innocent.
Her, “Hello! I am Mandy from La La La School. Thank you so much for contacting us online. I am here to help walk you through the process and help get you set up!”
Me, “From who?”
Her, “La La La School.”
Her, “The application you filled out online”
Me, “This is Abbie Gale.”
Her, “Yes, Hello!”
Me, (so confused) “I didn’t fill out an online school application.”
Her, “Well that is how I obtained your phone number. You have a son correct?”
Me, “Yes, I have three boys and I enrolled two of them in a new school already and I did not fill out a school application with you online.”
Her, “It was filled out for Peter who is currently enrolled in 2nd grade.”
Her, “La La La School is an online school that has real face time with teachers and a customized lesson plan.”
Me, “Yeah, ummmm Peter must have filled that application out and…HE IS GOOD. We aren’t having our eight year-old dropping out and taking online classes for second grade. Sorry about the confusion. He doesn’t think his current teachers know enough about reptiles to meet his academic goals. He pimps them occasionally and has deemed them unworthy and has been shopping around for new teachers Sorry we wasted your time.”
- Peter Finds it Ridiculous
So that is how my morning went. I only changed the name of the school because Peter, is indeed, guilty in this story.

Oh oh. Another boy-genius. Years ago, upon moving into a new house in a new state, we expected our cable to be turned on 2 days AFTER we moved in, but lo-and-behold it came on early! The stars were aligned except two men-in-black showed up at our door the next day and asked to speak to me because someone in our house had wired the big green cable box at the street so that EVERYONE in the neighborhood was receiving FREE cable. CHASE!!!!! (he was only 9 and his father’s tools were missing).

Unbelievable. It would be dangerous if they had been the same ages and in the same vicinity! That is soooo funny. Maybe he could hook us up with some premium stations? They are costing me an arm and a leg!
