It was the first day of public school, yet our free education system has munched upon my wallet ($175 worth of 'fees') like a tent caterpillar upon a leaf of a Black Cherry tree. Bits and pieces don't hurt so much, but the sum of the aggregate is noticeable, and my girls haven't even started shopping for school supplies...Yikes.
Oh get this:
The newest weird official rule at their school is that each student is allowed 39 visits to the restroom each semester. So who wants to take bets that 1) The enforcing of this policy by teachers and adminstrators will fall by the wayside the second week of school? or 2) Someone in the student body will figure out a quick and easy way to beat this policy before then?
For the record, I'm with the students on this one...
