    I am pretty sure that my kiddos hear more cuss words out of my mouth during drop off & pick up than on TV. My favorite is when everyone is crusing along just find and then the car in front of you slams on the breaks IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET while thier kid gets out.

    So true! I forgot about that parent. What is it? Do they lose their brains the minute the school comes into view?

    Oh, and when that one person stops, the kid gets out and there is usually an impatient person two cars behind who swerves out and nearly hits the child trying to pass all the stopped cars.

    All carpool lanes are bad! I will have to say that high school carpool lanes the worst. Not only are you dealing with crazy parents you are dealing the kids who got their license yesterday. (and I do mean yesterday)!!

    You are driving or should I say waiting for the crazy soccer moms to decide what they are going to do with monster suv’s. Then you have some actual soccer players trying to cut in front of you to get to their parking spaces. Of course the soccer player is driving a monster suv because their parents thought they would be safer. Yes they are safer but no car around them is.

    I now have the soccer player who is driving herself to school (in a civic). I have told her to please be careful and she tells me she hates the parents in the carpool line.

    Liz, I feel your pain. I refuse to enter the school parking lot. Between the kids who are driving through there like they are in a NASCAR race and the parents who stop short because they suddenly see little Johnny coming out of class and they need to say hello…I’m afraid someone will get run over.

    LOL at the SUV. We thought about giving Junior my SUV when he turns 16 (Yes, I have one; in my defense we use it tow the trailer for go-kart racing). But then we figured we were a) giving a 16 year old way, way too big a car to navigate in parking lots and skinny country roads; and b) giving him his own personal hotel room, which did not sit well with me! Also, we want him to pay for his car, but that’s another story.
