The worst!

The #1 most annoying thing at Curriculum Night is the parent who comes in at the end and asks, "What'd I miss?"

Oh, let me spend the next 30 minutes filling you in on what I spent the last 30 minutes saying.

Grrrr

Lol - no kidding!!

Possible response:

"Maybe you can find a friend to get you caught up on what you missed."

That's what I might WANT to say, anyhow.

Is the PITA parent who sends you a note that she's too busy to attend but demands a written summary and copies of all handouts. That was my first sign that she was a PITA parent and she didn't disappoint. I survived her and you will survive yours.

I hate entitled narcissistic people who don't care about anyone else's time, but their own!

We were supposed to have 3 rotations. Usually they ring a bell or make an announcement each time. I heard no bells or announcements, so it was chaos. I did my spiel once and then tried to hit the highlights 2 more times with people wandering in.

Not the best way to get through material.

Now you know who she is. A PITA Parent. Hand her the handouts and tell her she didn't miss anything. .

I always get several emails from those who "can't make it." I just post the link to my website that already has the PP I show. For those who missed it, I give them my handout. I always get at least three sets of parents that whisper, "How's he doing?" We are not supposed to give private conference, but these types don't give up.

Can't wait until our night is over. Chaos is the perfect word for it. One year the power went out. Last year, the bells were a mess. It's always super hot!

That is super annoying. There always seem to be parents who show up late and expect teachers to go over everything with them privately.

When that happened when I was teaching, I gave the parent the handout and did not engage in a conversation. I also sent handouts home to parents who didn't attend the following school day.

We never get too many parents to come to Curriculum Night. The few that actually show up are usually those whose kids are all Honor Roll, but I always give them all of my time. Some people are so disrespectful!

Now "the boat" will be echoing in my mind when my night comes up next week!
