Last night was fee night. Cuntalotapus didn't come, thankfully but DH managed to piss me off though...
Our school system doesn't give out books for middle school and high school. They hand out laptops. The paperwork said to pick up the laptop we needed to: pay the fee (50.00), sign the form that says child and parent read the rules and responsibilities of having the laptop AND a sleeve or bag to take the laptop home.
I bought DS and SS very nice LL Bean backpacks. So I told SS to take the backpack since it has a laptop sleeve AND that's what he's going to be carrying it around in anyway...
SS was acting like a brat. I questioned him and DH told me to let it go. I shrugged my shoulders and focused on keeping DS entertained while we waited in the ridiculously long line to pick up his schedule and laptop.
Later DH tells me SS was embarrassed that no one else was carrying a backpack and that I needed to be more empathetic to SS's insecurities. WTF? you are embarrassed because you followed the instructions? He should be more embarrassed that he refuses to care for his skin and has zits all over his face.
Yes, they were letting people take the laptops without a bag but I felt better knowing that his was being protected in the bag. But I guess since SS isn't financially responsible for the damn thing he doesn't care.
