I allowed the daycare kids to take Dahlias with them to school for their teachers.
They waited in line for the bus with bright eyes and pretty flowers.
When the bus driver pulled up she yelled out to me, “Are you going to come and sweep up all these petals off my bus at the end of my run??”
And I had to shake myself from the cute kids with flowers moment I was having to understand what she was talking about before responding with, “Oh! I mean yes of course!”
And she was all, “There’s always ONE that ends up all over my floor!”
And I was all, “Gosh I hadn’t thought of that I apologize!”
And she was all, “I’m terribly allergic!”
And I was all, “Oh my! Would you like me to take them back? I can just grab them real quick!”
And she was all, “No, we don’t have time for that. Luckily it’s a short run to the school!”
And I was all, “Well I really apologize! I won’t allow the children to do this again!”
She huffed away, and I can’t help but feel sorry for a woman who can’t manage to muster the slightest of good feelings when she sees a troop of happy 1st graders with flowers for their teachers.
