This diatribe is for you Lara.
One thing that gets on my wick is the school carpark. I have to have a little grizzle about it.
A lot of children catch a bus home, a lot get picked up by parents & a small handful walk home. The shemozzle that is the carpark is getting worse. You would think that if a child had to walk more than 5 metres it would be a tragedy in some parents eyes. I say let them walk, it wont hurt them at the end of the day to have to walk to an awaiting car, the rest of the trip is spent sitting down! Its laughable to see parents jostling for poll position to pick up their child and now the school has implented carpark patrol & put up barriers to make sure parents follow the rules. They have even split the dismissal time for the primary & secondary students by 10 minutes to clear some of the congestion.
I had to laugh at Erin today as she ran down the hill to where I wait for her in the car (its a whole 250 metres away) after school. She looked so funny with her stick arms & legs going full speed in different directions, & she looked so happy.
