There has been 3 things so far this year.
First, Jump rope for Heart... Yes, yes it's a great cause. But, damnit to hell how many times to I have to bug my family and friends to donate? It didn't make difference anyway, I was the only one who donated!
Second, Yankee Candles. A couple of weeks ago they sent her home with a big packet full of shit to help her sell them. Right, like I'm going to let her walk around our apartment complex trying to sell candles, when you can just go to Bed Bath and Beyond and buy them yourself.
Third- Today she brought home another packet full of magazine subscriptions. Apparently, we (ME) have to give them names and addresses of our family and friends so they can solicit magazines to them.
"Mommy, if we give them 7 names then I get a penguin."
"What kind of penguin?" I ask.
"I don't know what kind, they just said a penguin, Mommy please can we do this?" she pleads.
"When is it due?"
What the hell.. nothing like giving a Mom some notice!
If it makes her happy, I guess we do it. (I DO IT)
What makes me mad is that they wave all these prizes in front of their faces tempting them to SELL,SELL, SELL! These prizes are junk!
I swear when I pick her up from school tomorrow, she better have a real fucking penguin waddling behind her!
If anyone gets a card in the mail from Emilie asking to buy a magazine, you don't have to buy them.
At least that's what she said. They only wanted the names and addresses.
Sorry in advance ya'll!
Thanks for reading
It's Friday and I just picked up my daughter from school.. here's a picture of the penguin she got.
