Help, How Do I Handle This? - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Thread Starter 

Here's why I don't like the preschool.  My 3-year old niece went there many years ago, and was, believe it or not, bullied.  Another little girl was taking toys from her and saying hurtful things and just plain mean.  When she would get dropped off my niece would cry and bang on the window because she wanted to go home.   I didn't think it possible at that age, but something wasn't right with that bullying child.  When my sister approached the preschool's director about it, her response was "she needs to toughen up."  Obviously, my sister pulled her out of that school but there was a bit of damage done.  My niece was more shy for  a few years than I think she would have ordinarily been.  The director is still there.  My family has a few choice words to describe her, but we are not into destroying people, otherwise, we could have, as we are very well know in our town.

 

My niece is now a freshman in high school.  She remembers it.  She can laugh it off now but if you ask her how it felt at the time she will not be smiling.

The first is a good example, but I think the second will do as well and has the added benefit of working well without the facial hair..   WARNING!  Do not, under any circumstances Google hairy eyeball images.  It will, seriously, put you off your kibble for a long, loooooong time.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Yes, the top cat is a good example of the hairy eyeball. It's the look your mother gave you that means  she's holding off on going off on you in public, but you're going to get it when you get home. Also known as the "stink eye."

I always knew it as "the look"  which my mom and many others gave to indicate behave and listen.  However love the cat photo... shall we all practice squinting one eye??:mischeivous:

 

Perhaps just saying you have reached your limit for donations would be the wisest.  Sometimes the less said the better especially if you are in a small town... word does get around. As one other CC said practice saying no.

good luck on how you handle it.

Of course chocolate is the answer!

Thanks everyone for the great advice!  I have figured out what I am going to do, which is make 1 dozen cupcakes with very few decorations, which will be extremely minimal cost to me.  It just was not worth rocking the boat of my reputation and personal contacts over a conflict.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Before I googled it myself I never realized that "hairy eyeball" is an actual medical condition.

What did you decide to say and how did it go?  A dozen simple cupcakes to stay in good with her was successful compromise,  Yes??
