Whaaaat a surprise!

Oh look, it's Monday afternoon, I've just got back from work and now I'm complaining about it....again.

I'm gonna keep it brief, but basically, in a nutshell, the long and the short of it isss...I work with children, of which there are two types.

- The 16 and under
- The 40 and over

Serimouse. Today I actually had to say the words "Look, there's no need to be rude to me" and it wasn't even to a student. Worddddd!

One teacher acted like such a petulant brat, my eyebrows went all furrowed like a monobrow. Simply put, if you can't remember the four digit code to get into the school, don't stand there and shake the door in a fit of rage. Just ring the buzzer and someone will let you in.

Rocket science? No.

If someone then kindly asks you not to shake the door in a fit of rage, because it will probably break, don't start being rude to them.

Particularly if the person's name is Jo, who will go home and rant to her mother (the headteacher) and she has a blog which she will bitch about you on later.

There seems to be an acceptance at The Little School where if you are stressed, it gives you a free pass to be rude. I have never worked anywhere like it.

I was only thinking of the poor rattled door :(

Let's hope the headteacher exchanged a few words with the petulant one.

Some people!! I felt like that about PR Agency. Some of my colleagues there were unbelievably rude when they felt stressed and we were all expected to turn a blind eye.

I sell handles and we have people with broken knobs and levers which they have forced, I think it is sometimes that they have been angry and snapped them.
Getting someone to admit that is like pulling teeth.
Cheers x

Seems to me that if the integrity of the door is that easily threatened, isn't it a waste of money having a security system on it?

i like how you rant, its funny.

yup, adults can be as bad as children. Then again, if i were working with children, my fuse would no doubt be shortened at the prospect of doing it daily. That door would be off its hinges lol

Why are some people such impatient thick twats?

Why Jo? Why?

Your twattish door rattler is reminiscent of a recent incident that happened to Furry. Cept without a door. And with a car.

Whilst parked up at the side of the road waiting patiently to pick me up from my local tube station the other evening, Furry (in his little works van) suddenly felt his vehicle judder. Then heard a metallic grinding noise. Then noticed a 4 x 4 scraping past as it squeezed between his van and an oncoming car.

Puzzled, shocked and v.v. annoyed as to why the guy had decided to do what he did, Furry jumped out and, after inspecting his van, demanded some answers.

Reason for damaging Furry's rear van light and scraping off most of the side van paint? The guy was in a hurry and didnt have 10 seconds to spare for the oncoming car to go past.

Unbearable - Ahh, my mother in under strict instructions not to breathe a word about my rants to anyone at school. I'm no snitch.

bluesoup - Thats the problem. It just gets accepted because they're stressed apparently, I'm like sunshine, try working on a live TV programme when the autocue goes down 30 seconds before going on air to 6 million people. It's stressful, but ultimately inconsequential in the wider sense. For me, there's no excuse for rudeness at work.

Grump - I can imagine! Door handles,and doors themselves often get the raw end of the deal in an argument. I've slammed a few in my time :D

Brennig - Let's just say this teacher was giving it a rattling even our worst kids couldn't manage. So unnecessary..

Mal - I thought that, and then I thought "and that is why I choose not to work with children as a career". Unlike teachers!

MOT - Oh you know what, people are idiots. Don't even get me started on how many times I've nearly had some bozo career into the side of me, trying to squeeze through. Did Furry get the guys details and registration no. etc? Report him?
