See You Tomorrow!

At work today, I had after school bus duty.  This basically consists of standing by the buses as the kiddos head out for the day and reminding them to walk, not run, to their bus. 

As two fourth grade girls walked past me, one of them heading for the bus by me and the other one walking to a bus further down, I overheard them saying goodbye to one another.

girl #1:  See you tomorrow!

girl #2:  Ok

girl #1:  Oh, I mean today.

both girls at once:  FaceTime!!

I just shook my head and stood there thinking, kids these day. 

My first thought was immediately followed by this second thought, damn it, I think I have become one of those old crotchety ladies who think such things as “kids these days!”

  1. I probably would’ve thought the same. :/

  2. Stop running. Walk. You’ll get there faster.
