I was checking out at Target and the lady in front of me was buying a cart load of school supplies and bitching the entire time about how teachers expect so much and how “They need to realize I pay their goddamn salary and shouldn’t have to buy this shit”.
Guuurl. Hold on. LET ME TAKE MY EARRINGS OUT!
I looked at her and said, “Ma’am I’m a public school teacher. Thank you for paying my “goddamn salary” I’m sure the meager amount you pay in taxes will buy me a delicious case of ramen noodles, but if you don’t shut your mouth and realize your children go to school essentially FOR FREE—-imma smack you right here”
I then dropped my stuff and walked out.
I cannot even believe I did that.
This was my favorite part of today, and you should know that earlier in the day I had free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. And this was better than that.
