I didn’t know that inviting people to a birthday party would be so much trouble. Parties are not what they used to be. The world has gone wacky. I had to blog about this because my heart is heavy and I need to get it out of my system.
I asked my son’s teacher to distribute some invitations and her exact words were: “As a class practice, invitations should be addressed to all students, all boys or all girls.”
I wasn’t planning on inviting the whole class or all boys or all girls. I do not have the money to be inviting the whole class, and I explained this to her, not that this is any of her business. I also called my neighbor whose son is in my son’s class and the parents said they did not have to go through what I went through. Teacher e-mailed me back stating: look at the message below, a/k/a as a class practice, invitations should be addressed to all students, all boys or all girls.
What kind of garbage is that? Is this a socialist class room where everybody is treated the same? Maybe in her world, but not in the real world. This is why everyone gets an award and people are worried if they should open presents at their kids’ birthday party or wait until everyone is gone in order to spare other kids’ feelings. Why does Teacher have to control who is invited to my son’s birthday and control how much I spend on my birthday? What’s that about? I used to teach college and the kids there had that mentality. Well, at least he/she tried! Well trying may cost these students’ their jobs.
I figured out a way to distribute the invitations without involving her which I think it is ridiculous that I have to bypass her. I e-mailed her back mentioning that my neighbor did not have to go through this and I thought is was unfair. So far no response.
Initially I was so upset that I was making physically making myself sick. Then I though, she’s not worth it. I read my Bible and forgave her.
