I can say it and I did
Well, I learned a few days ago about the renovations at the admin building of my previous employer, and I nearly flipped out. The reason being, our campus houses the severe and profoundly disabled children for the entire district. For two years we have been trying to get awnings built over the sidewalks that these children go out every evening to be picked up. Those with cerebral palsy, in wheelchairs, and other physical issues are forced to go out and down a sidewalk with no protection from thunderstorms, hail storms, sleet, not much snow here, but when it does snow it always manages to snow at dismissal time, and other weather related problems. Yet, our renovations of the admin building has become more important with a new regime change than these children.
Since I no longer depend on THEM for my paycheck, I fired off three emails to three board members. I heard back from one. One that I did not hear back from actually has grandchildren in our school, but of course his children are “perfect.” I am so happy to report that the one board member that stood up for us may have actually changed the tide as it appears we will be getting our awnings as well as a new office area to remove the filthy carpet that the health department actually requested be done over a year ago. Now, I don’t want to get too excited. I’ll believe it when I see it, but I can keep the heat on now that I can say everything I always wanted to say but was afraid to! Just to end on a descriptive note; the board member that brought this up asked the question, “Why does ****(name left out to protect the innocent) always have to suck hind tit.” For those of you that don’t understand that particular analogy, ask a farmer.
