Parents. I think out of everyone I have to deal with in my day at school it's the parents that make my head hurt most. Some parents are fantastic, some are ok, some are tolerable, some are a nuisance and some are a category 5 storm with psychotic tendencies that hit when you have a migraine ripping your left eye ball out and no drugs in sight. The parents of the kids in my class tend to fall mostly into the latter category.
There are 2 types of category 5 storm with psychotic tendencies that hit when you have a migraine ripping your left eye ball out and no drugs in sight parent. There are the ones who think that Bob is gifted and talented because he can spell his name forwards and backwards, that their angel can do no wrong (because it was Amy’s fault that Bob stabbed her in the bicep with a strategically sharpened lead pencil plucked in a timely fashion from behind his ear, after all she did ask him to pass the glue) and that generally their snookums is indeed smarter than the university degree holding teacher.
Then there are the ‘others’. This would be the type of category 5 storm with psychotic tendencies that hit when you have a migraine ripping your left eye ball out and no drugs in sight parent that shows up half an hour after the bell went for the end of the day. Drunk. Same parent who sends their child back to school a week after it started, with no books , no lunch and no uniform, just to make the poor bastard stand out a little more. Have a guess whose fault it is that said child is no longer at school seeing as it had finished half an hour before? Did you say the parent who was busy consuming alcoholic beverages at the nearest alcoholic beverage watering hole? Well then. Wouldn’t you be wrongity wrong wrong! Lo ho! It’s that rascally, pesky, trickster of a teacher. The cheeky minx let said child leave the classroom with the rest of the class at the end of the day! When the bell rang no less!!
That trickster of a teacher really needs to get their parent-drunk-at-the-pub radar fixed. Someone revoke their registration before their parent-in-the-middle-of-very-important-drug-deal radar goes awry.
