Writer's Workshop: Angsty

Things that make me feel angsty (ie: fear, anxiety, rage)

  1. Kids who don't have winter coats.  We live in Pennsylvania.  This is NOT acceptable.  Talk to your social worker.  Visit a clothing bank.   Sign up for an angel tree gift.  Ask the cafeteria staff.  They are softies.
  2. Parents who don't get their children off the bus.  Seriously?  It's one thing to have a lazy elf on a shelf who forgets to relocate.  It's a whole other thing to completely fail to get your five year old off the bus.
  3. 500 students signed up for Christmas help.  I think I'm sad because I can only help 3.  I think I'm fearful because there may be some without help. On the list of one of my three?  A coat.
  4. Cheese sandwiches.  Unpaid cafeteria bills result in cheese sandwiches.

What is eating you?

Oh that just breaks my heart that those children don't have winter coats especially living in PA! Poor kiddos!!

I live near Buffalo, NY so you know it's pretty cold here too. It is sad how many kids don't have adequate clothing. People think because we live in a nice suburb that the kids have everything they need. Not so. Very sad indeed!

What happens if you like cheese sandwiches?

The lack of weather appropriate attire is one of those things that bothers me too.
