November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Children Are A Stressing

| Kansas, USA | Family & Kids, Wild & Unruly

(At the day care where I work, I have one kid who screams for absolutely no reason. He also has been known to become violent in a short amount of time. In this particular instance, a parent has arrived to pick up her own child while the kid is livid.)

Parent: *walks in smiling* “How’s your day going?”

Me: *smiles back* “Not too bad! Yours?”

Parent: *glances at child* “I’m just glad it’s almost Friday.”

Me: “Yeah, me too.”

(Suddenly, the kid picks up a chair, and throws it against the wall while letting out a monstrous scream, scaring not only this parent, but two other parents, the rest of the children, and myself.)

Parent: *stares at the kid and looks back at me* “God bless you!”

A Chip Off The Non-biological Block

| Phoenix, AZ, USA | Family & Kids

(It is the end of our day camp, and all of the parents are coming in to pick up their children.)

Me: “Look, [child]! Your mom is here. You know, you look just like her!”

Child: “No! I wanna look like my daddy!”

Mother, to my coworker and me: *quietly* “He doesn’t look like his dad at all, if you know what I mean.”

(The mother and child leave.)

Coworker: “I hope she meant that his father has a bunch of recessive traits.”
