The school called, it was Mrs. Conway, who is a general office assistant that has probably been working there since the school opened in 1907.
She says, “I’m just calling to check on Isaiah.”
Me: “Okay, what do you need?”
Mrs. Conway: “Is he ill? I have a note here that he’s absent.”
Me: “No, I dropped Isaiah off this morning at school. He’s THERE.”
Me: “He IS there, right? Why don’t you go and check?!”
She calls back a minute later and says that he is indeed there, he’d been marked TARDY, not ABSENT.
And that took 10 years off my life.
