Hey, we all love our kids.
But does that mean we have to love all of our kids' classmates, too?
We're only semi-kidding, but seriously every parent has had to deal with the penultimate question of should I volunteer at my kid's school?
So, for those of us who would rather not do so - we have a solution.
Here's what our friends at Babble have to say on the subject!:
"It happens every year. Your kids’ school needs volunteers and somehow someway you always get sucked in to doing so much more than you mean to. It’s just that you have so much trouble saying no! Well, stop being a pussy! The people who do the organizing can smell your fear of confrontation and need to please from a country mile and if you don’t do something about it, you will find yourself heading up the annual giving committee, personally snapping every yearbook photo, answering phones in the office and bringing home the class pets. And that will just be Monday. Don’t worry, as usual, I’ve got a solution. Here are eight ways to avoid even being asked, let alone forced to volunteer.
1. Three words: Multiple Face piercings
2. Demand high-fives that you finally cleared a background check.
3. When discussing the next fundraiser wonder loudly if McDonald’s caters.
4. Send out an email about your idea to shoot a “Hot Husbands of the PTA” calendar and state your intention to hold private auditions in your home."
