Another reason Middletown Schools suck

Got the Man's year book today. This was always an exciting day - getting the year book, having your friends sign it, taking it home - to be put up until you are an adult and read those entries and laugh at how silly and goofy we were.

He walks out of class. He's so excited, so proud to have finally got his year book.

He holds up this flimsy paperback piece of trash that's lime green. Looking at it, I ask his teacher "Where are the real year books?" She said "That's it". I ask (still quite astonished that this paperback thing is actually the year book) "What happened to the hard back year books?" She looks at me quizically. I said "You know, the hard back year books like I got when I was his age?" She asked me where I went to school and I told her the Weed. (I'm actually proud I went to Wayne Elementary - its the rest of the crapy school I hated after 4th grade.) She said "Well then, there you have it, a difference in schools. We've always had our year books like this."

Cheapskates. The entire system. Cheap Cheap Cheap Cheap.

I hope that Princeton is better, and nicer - I've only heard one person say they didn't like Princeton and wouldn't put their child there.

I've got a long list of people to say the same for the Weed. The list of people who sing the praises of Madison are just as long.

Ours were paperback til we got to High School here in KY. At least at the 2 schools I went to.

Then it must have started with a much younger generation than us old foggies. ;)

I don't recall my younger sisters year books being paperback but perhaps I am wrong - I shall have to ask them.
