Lessons from the Lunchlady: is that a carrot or a fry?

Even though this week was short due to the Columbus Day holiday, I can honestly say I am thankful it is Friday.

Here's what I learned.

Offering choices sucks. I am soooo tired of offering kids a choice of a cold veggie or a hot veggie. No one listens. You repeat yourself continuously. And responses often do not include Yes, please or No thank you.

Kids notice everything. Change your haircolor they will notice. Wear bannana earings and they will notice. Nearly drop the pizza and they will definately notice.

Don't try to scare the pee out of someone unless your bladder is empty. My co worker scared me and almost wet herself. This caused me to laugh randomly the rest of the day.

Confetti Fries.. This is our version of a healthy fry. It is regular fries mixed with sweet potatoe fries. Um...this week they battled it out against carrots and when the kids loudly proclaimed fries. Many asked why I mixed the carrots in with them. Something about an orange fry...

I am a rock star. I read a book called Lunch Bunnies to a class of kindergarteners today. I love how they cheer my name and are always glad I came.

Now to get paid like a rock star.

What did you learn this week?

I learned that landlords don't have any rights and if you are a criminal or a lawyer you get preferential treatment in housing court.
We are dealing with an eviction and were supposed to be at court at 9:00, the door to the courtroom where we had to sign up didn't open until 9:30. Then they did a whole slew of criminal cases first, then all the evictions that were people that had sent a lawyer and finally got to us. Luckily I was first in line and we were called up first. The judge swore in my Mom asked a few questions and said, "You have possession of the residance" all took about 1 min. Then we had to pay the Marshall $105 so they can come to the house and say we can change the locks. We were there for 2.5 hrs for this.
And even with that, he has until the 24th to get out, which he personally is, but his junk is still there. Then we have to "store his possessions in a secure place for at least 30 days" This after he threatened to kill the family, Mom has lived with us for almost 3 months, he was told on August 2 to get out of the apartment, received 2 letters telling him to leave. What an unfair system we have.
So I learned that I NEVER want to be a landlord!

I've learned, especially after reading Mrs Maynard's comment, that our lives would be quite grimm without kids!
