The Day from HELLLLLL
Friday, October 06, 2006

See, told yah I was going to Hell. I just didn't expect the Express bus to run my sorry butt down.

Yesterday I get to work hoping my check card is on the floor where I'm pretty sure I dropped it.


Bad feeling here, very bad. I call the bank and there are already two charges. So I take care of that mess but my head is distinctly elsewhere as I go through the motions of work. I just want to go home, throw on some favorite pj's and plow myself into oblivion with my favorite ice cream..or perhaps a coke and whiskey, or several...Whichever.

3:10 the phone rings. It's Kendell's school

That little voice that told me all was not right with my check card, yah, it's back. I know he's in trouble. At this point if there was some way to avoid answering that phone I would have. I would have lied down and broke my own leg in order to not answer that phone; no such luck, they'll just track me down at the hospital.

I pick up the call feeling like I'm the one in trouble and listen to the vice principal spell out Kendell's nefarious crime.
Seems some girl decided calling Kendell's mother a whore was a good idea. Kendell then thought popping said girl in the eyeball was an equally good idea.


Long story short, girl in trouble for foul mouth, Kendell suspended for a day for hitting her.

I believe offering him up for sale is not an option at this moment. His stock value has just plummeted.

I get home from work and make him tell me the details. When he is done I ask him,
"Kendell, do you know what a whore is?"
"Um..hmmm... I think it's when your mean and nasty, yell alot, and nobody likes you." (ouch, sounds a tad bit closer to home then i'd like)
"Huh, yah, not quite."
I then explain to him in a "G" rated version of what a whore is. I think if the word is being used, he is better off knowing the real meaning.
"Now Kendell, based on that definition, am I a whore?"
"Oh NO Mommy!"
"There's no way. You've never even slept with another man since my daddy!." (this is the same father that hasn't been around for 11years)
*cough, cough, choke*
"You're right Kendell, you're absolutely right!"

Hell has my torture cell all picked out for me dontcha think?

Hell I'd smack that b*tch too for calling my mom a whore. I am the only one that can do that. Actually in middle school I got inhouse suspension for hitting a girl that called my mother a b*tch to her face.

Oh wait...violence is not the answer. Kendall should also know that it is never right to hit a girl. And if he feels that angry he should just walk away. :)

You haven't been with anyone in 11 years? LOL

Okay, he was wrong for hitting the girl. But, aren't you just a little bit proud of him for sticking up for you? ;)

carrie, we had the whole"though shall not hit girls" speech...believe me.
and 11 shall plead the fifth as my son may read this blog when he is in fact, in that case, Kendell your mother is as good as a Nun!

Fickle, I would have rather he stood up to her by telling a teacher so I could have avoided being called to the principals office..sigh

lies for good causes are okay. Not scaring your child by telling him the details of your sex life falls in that category.

At least, that's the line I've been using, so go with it.

Well, you now know for sure your boy will defend you no matter what ! Hum...

And when life is hell, remember that some things in life are worst than everything : Pink Popcorn and Strawberry milk. That's what I grew up thinking anyway...

Have a great weekend !

I applaud your letting Kendall know that violence is the answer, and you're a super mom.

I'm still a bit ashamed to admit that I was proud of him for smacking the foul-mouthed half-pint she-bitch from hell, but I am. Nothing like having a son who believes in you, sweetie. It's proof that you worked hard to make sure he grew up right!!

Sorry about your check card, babygirl. Man, that bites the hairy wanker! I hope they catch the miscreant and make them pay, pay, pay!!

I meant to say that violence is NOT the answer. Sorry. I'm a moron. Who can't type.

Blogger TamWill had this to say:

I admire you for telling him what the true definition of that bad word is.

How or why a girl would even say that is bothersome and downright crude.

I don't promote violence but I would have a hard time being upset with him.

Well, techinically no matter how many people you have slept with as long as you don't take money you are not a whore.

And if a woman does take money for sex, she is not a whore, she is a prostitute(sounds more professional).

Now, in my book, politicians and greedy corporate suits who outsource jobs and move their headquarters offshore to avoid taxes are WHORES.

ps Sorry your son goes to school with potty mouths!

Blogger mlah had this to say:

so what's the problem?

yes, he was wrong for hitting a girl. but he was right for sticking up for his mom. you should both punish and reward him. make sure he understands both and encourage him to find solutions in which he does not get punished.

i'm talking about something like putting him on restriction for dotting the i, and buying him a new x-box game for sticking up for you. but enforce the restriction.

no, he absolutely should NOT have gone whining to a teacher. it is a VERY good thing he solves his own problems. we have way too many people who rely on govt to take care of every tiny problem. and it is something else he needs to learn about being a man. sometimes we have to get punished to take care of our girls.

kendell was right

buy him some ice cream or something

Hmm, those conversations are hard. Do you go with honesty or do you lie? It's like the Santa Claus dilemma, only with obscenities instead of cookies and milk.

Oh no! He was defending your honor! And what girl calls someone's mother a whore? What a little tramp! Skank! Hoochie Momma!

Blogger Cece had this to say:

Until we teach them that hitting is not the answer to all things that upset us, its what they do. I'm glad you were able to talk to him.

But he was defending his mom. Sort of hard not to get mad, even a little bit. LOL

I feel your pain regarding the whole vice principal thing. :(

It just sucks that kid's even have to HEAR that word, let alone know what it means. When I was 11, I was still playing with Barbies and watching cartoons. Now, the "bad stuff" is everywhere.

I wanna live in a G-rated world, damnit! :)

P.S. I love Kendell!

You handled it wonderfully. Now go reward yourself with a whisky-coke float!
