One of the neighborhood girls came over the other day, soliciting donations for her school something-or-other. Now, it gripes me to no end that schools get all that federal funding and still have fundraisers while I keep my own at home and buy the supplies out of my pocket, but that’s not the point of today’s rant. I also participated in a fund raiser the first year we moved here and have yet to receive the goods I paid for, but that’s also not the point of today’s rant.
Cass-would you just get to the point??? Ok, here it is. The child had been given the “honor” of being in the court for this something-or-other. Whether she got to be queen, princess or lady in waiting *was totally dependent* on how much money she raised. That is just wrong on so many levels. So many levels. Wrong.
