I don't have a picture as I'm all but spitting about this situation. BUT, let me first say--I've had the best few days. Philadelphia Film Office (a.k.a movie), Finding Skirtin Around (my new fav shop) and book clubs galore. I can even be skyped in-who knew. But I'm loving Monogram March. I'm just not into March Mean girls!!!!
SC/Mean Girls! Life Does not surpass 7th grade
I recently got a call from my friend Sally, regarding a situation of the tear inducing sort. Her young daughter has been subjected to her first dose of Mean Girls. But what bothers me more is how the Mother handled it!
Here's the situation: MM (Mean Mother's) daughter no longer wants to be public friends with Sally's daughter at school, only on the weekends. I"m not a psychologist so I cannot begin to analyze that. But MM's behavoir is what irked me. Her daughter is a permanent fixture at Sally's house, weekends, vacations-you name it. I've even met MM's daughter, that is how much she is there. Sally treats MM's daughter like her own, she'd do anything for her and has. When MM's daughter decided she no longer wanted the friendship what did MM do? What any MM mother would do-she called the school psychologist to get involved, not Sally. I'm being sarcastic here, wouldn't the appropriate thing be to call Sally? First, only if to give her a heads up. Nothing tramatic happened. Sally's daughter did not "do" anything. MM's daughter just decided she wanted to make new friends. What would you do? Am I off base here?
The story gets worse as poor, unsuspecting Sally's daughter gets called in and told she is no longer friends with MM's daughter. She was rightfully very hurt, not to mention she is a shy little girl with social anxiety (that the school and MM are fully aware). This situation could have been handled so much differently and it will never cease to amaze me how mean people can and will be
