“My daughter came home very upset today. Because she was warned several times to finish her ‘ham’ that is included in the lunch meal at Skano. Many families do not eat pork for several reason, please have staff educated. Thanks.”
GV: “The aides have been notified not to pressure students into eating their food.”
First, I’m just going to assume a mom sent this in. Just feels like its written in a mom tone, but I could be wrong. Dad’s just aren’t what they used to be, so ya never know.
Second, I love how this lady says its “ham” not just like regular ham, but “ham.” Its like she thinks its not actually ham or something. I mean I’ve never gone to Skano, nor would I ever want to, but I would would be willing to bed 3/1 odds that when they say they are serving ham, it’s actually ham.
Third, “please have staff educated. thanks.” I honestly don’t think you could come up with a more bitchy line than that if your life depended on it.
Anyways heres the correct response to the lady’s
Listen if your daughter doesn’t do meat she doesn’t do meat. It’s as simple as that. Johnny peanut butter knows he can’t eat peanut butter… so you know what he does, he sits in the corner with his non peanut butter eating friends. If your daughter doesn’t do meat, she can sit a the no meat table. Wether she will regret this in High School, thats something you’ll need to ask yourself. Walking around and hearing, “Jenny doesn’t like meat” is the risk she’s might have to take. It might take a while to find a boyfriend who… well… likes a girl who doesn’t like meat. Until then… “The aides have been notified not to pressure students into eating their food.”
