What I learned in the cafeteria this week

Another week, another $.32 cents.

Here's what I learned in the cafeteria this week:
  • We owe, we owe, it's off to work we go.  It is unethical to tell anyone, child or adult, that they owe lunch money.  Of course, once they become an adult and ignore their electric bill or their phone bill, someone will actually have to tell them.
  • Five Digits:  Expecting children to remember a five digit number is like expect grown ups to randomly buy you dinner.  Why is it unreasonable to expect a five year old to remember 16900....a number necessary to access their account at breakfast, as well as their computer account.
  • Allergies:  These buggers continue to plague the cafeteria and unreasonable parents who believe that packing their child a lunch takes away from the "full school experience" make things even harder.
  • Fruit:  Only 1 out of every 10 students actually takes a fruit.
  • Vegetables:  It is possible to make it to 3rd grade having never tasted cauliflower.

I've let my son buy lunch 4 times so far ... and he hasn't had a fruit or veggie yet!

In regards to Fruit: of those 1 of ten that take the fruit only about 1/2 of them actually eats it.
What have I learned this week? That no matter how hard I wish for it, the temperature isn't going back up to the 80's this week! I'm stuck with this stuff in the 50's and 60's at least for a couple days. Hopefully, it will warm up again in a few days.

Love the picture. I learned from my daughter that most kids only take the carrots because they can dip them in ranch dressing. :P
