I am here to tell those of you who were saddened by my sudden admiration for the PTA board that I was serving on would cause me to lose that edge when mocking the PTA. I am here to tell you…the mocking is alive and well! No, not from my Good Board. From my Mean Board.
I recently had a run-in (several by email) with a PTAnal Militant Mom. You know the kind. Former president who thinks she still runs things. Spends all summer working on PTA things and expects the same of you. Is rude and mean. Why, yes, it is junior high. All over again. But meaner. (I didn’t think that was possible.)
Anyway, the email exchanges have become downright comical. What is that you ask? Will I share them with you? Of course I will! But let me let them run their course because people, THIS is why it is so hard to find parents willing to help out on the PTA.
Help. I think I need to go back into the PTA Volunteer Protection Program. Anyone want to house me for my own safety for a while?
At least I have my Good Board. They are friendly and open to newcomers. The new one? Well, let’s just say I check my bed nightly for severed horse heads. (Yes, a Godfather reference. Sue me. No don’t. I have enough problems to deal with right now.)
So for those of you that know me and see me show up in sunglasses, a wig and a hat…pretend you don’t know. I am hiding from the Mob PTA.
And do not even think of saying “I told you so” or I will send them after YOU.
And for the record…my Nice Board has no PTAnal Militant Moms OR PTAll Moms on the board. We are all just there to help. For that I owe them my eternal loyalty and gratitude.
