Today, I'm mad about high school secretaries.
Dear High School Front Desk Ladies,
Not to be stereotypical or anything, but I have yet to see a dude work at a high school front desk.
The following things are completely inappropriate to discuss in public, much less when people are walking in and out of your "office:"
--someone defecating in his/her pants
--the process of you cleaning up said defecation
--calling that defecation "crapping his drawers"
As I've said already today, in a completely different context: Those are things that you can only say to your spouse on the phone, and you have to expect him/her to hang up on you.
Also, not that I'm THAT important, but when someone walks into the office and just stands there, someone who's paid to sit at the front desk needs to address that person. THREE TIMES in the last two days, I've walked into an office, stood there and literally had to interrupt your conversations (about crapping drawers) to ask where I need to sign in. I'm FINE with not signing in, but since you make me, acknowledge my presence.
Finally, it's not completely absurd that I don't know where your College Center is. I haven't been to your school before, because your school isn't that important to me. If you came into my office, I wouldn't assume you know where the bookstore is, because I'm not a huge asshole.
I was going to make a comment here about snacking, but I remembered by skirt issue just in time.
With Christ's love,
