Smeggy Smurf: Face it, nobody loved you when you were born. They didn't love you in school and now you're forever alone. Meanwhile Mama Boo-Boo has a boyfriend.
cgraves67: I'm not seeing the Socialism aspect here. Where is the government control of the markets and economy?
iheartscotch: Smeggy Smurf: Face it, nobody loved you when you were born. They didn't love you in school and now you're forever alone. Meanwhile Mama Boo-Boo has a boyfriend.Didn't what's his face marry Mama Boo-Boo?
UNC_Samurai: Sorry, this was the policy in elementary schools in Eastern Bumfark North Carolina in the 80s. This mom can take her high horse and gallop under a low branch in the hopes it knocks some sense into her./children can be vile, evil little shiats; making them put a Valentine in everybody's box is the least we can do when humanizing them through social interaction
Calmamity: CTRL-F "socialist"None found.Woman's got a point, as far as I'm concerned.
turtle553: The only real issue is not being able to put names on the envelopes. They get handed out at random, so you can't make a special card for one particular person.
Crass and Jaded Mother Farker: Lady, I hate to break it to you, but that ship mostly sailed in the 70's./I had to do it & I'm old//Think of it as the school's way of saving you from your next article.///About how your snowflake is more popular than you ever were.
Prey4reign: Smeggy Smurf: Face it, nobody loved you when you were born. They didn't love you in school and now you're forever alone. Meanwhile Mama Boo-Boo has a boyfriend.Maybe they didn't love her in school because she was stuck up. She's got a kid, so she's not living a monastic life now. And, I'd sort rather have her as a girlfriend than Mama June.
johnnieconnie: I was in elementary school in the 70's and that was the policy at my school, as well. If you brought Valentines, you had to bring one for everyone. If you brought food, you brought enough for the whole class, plus the teacher :)My 2nd grade Valentines, both my brother and I were home at the same time due to chicken pox (Mom drank heavily that year), and a friend brought us both a sackful of Valentines and candy from our respective classrooms.I think the rest of your life is plenty of time to realize that not everyone likes you, and you will definitely learn that if you spend 12 years in school. So how about give the little kids a chance to have a good time and not drag politics into every little thing about school?
notatrollorami: Man, she hit the nail on the head. I know I absolutely hate how my kids were deprived of social ranking by full class participation in kindergarten activities. Why, my daughter's in the eighth grade and STILL has nerdy friends in addition to preppy ones and athletic ones. Blacks and Mexicans and half breeds too.Cliques should be established as early as possible to ensure appropriate and traditional social stratification.///I will admit this kind of policy is a pain in the ass when you have to go all cloak and dagger with third graders because you can't invite 22 of them to your kids birthday sleepover.
