A couple of hours ago, I went to certain retail establishment because they get new stock on Thursdays, which means they have TONS of plastic bags to recycle. Our school has a recycling program. When you bring, among other things, plastic bags to the school to recycle the money from them then goes to our ARTS program. I filled my car with 15 or so bags (so big, you can really only carry one, maybe two, at a time - not because they are heavy, but because they are bulky). I got to my son's school and this is how it goes:
I unload 3 at a time from my car, carrying them to the front door - 2 gals walks by me and some man that works at the school.
I then open the heavy outer door of the school and toss bags (15 - 20) into the space between outer doors and inner doors. The PTA president walks by me and says, "Don't tell me all those are from your house!" "No, I get them every Thurs. from this store for recycling here." "Oh." and walks away.
Then I throw them into the school hallway so I can carry them to the specific bag area. 2 more gals walk by me.
This whole process from the car to the appropriate recycle drop off takes me 5 minutes, with 6 people smiling as they walk out of the school.
I'm not saying that none of them were in a hurry. I'm not saying what I was doing was so important to our school that you should praise me and thank me for adding about $100 more dollars to our ARTS program, and I am fine if I had to do this all myself, especially when no one passes by. But since 6 people did pass by, for the love maybe HELP ME CARRY THEM IN!!!!
By the way, our PTA president is not fond of the ARTS program.
