Mom to Drop-Off Line Parents: Kids Should Hop Out of Cars Like They're "Storming the Beaches of Normandy"
We've seen many a funny mom take on the topic of the elusive school drop-off line — you know, the line of cars that's meant to move quickly and efficiently to get kids out of the backseat and into school without parents needing to leave their vehicle, but rarely does? For those parents who are the reason every drop-off line across America gets inevitably stalled every single morning, Stephanie Blakely Calabrace has words — freakin' hilarious ones (so hilarious, in fact, that others have tried — and ultimately failed — to claim them for their own).
"I'm only going to say this once. If you have to bathe and dress your kid, comb their hair, scramble them an egg, and write them a send-off letter before they can exit the car, YOU DO NOT BELONG IN THE SCHOOL DROP OFF LINE," the Nashville mom wrote in a now-viral Facebook post. "Only people who raised their kids to jump out of the car with backpacks loaded like they are storming the beaches of Normandy while the car is at a slow roll are allowed in the drop off line."
The mom shared that while she resorted to "stink-eye warnings" on the first day of school, from then on out it'd be citations for any parent who broke the rules of the line. We expect she'll have to give out quite a few . . . and based on other parents' reactions on Facebook — some of which you can read below — it appears as though there are plenty of volunteers ready to give out drop-off line citations in their own towns. Godspeed, parents.
