Wait, I'm confused: did the bank have a child, or did he use the child to rob the bank? "This is a sick-up, give me all your money or I'll throw the child at you."

Glitch has PG County School System robocalling parents at 4:30AM to tell them that school is delayed because of the snow this week.

One pissed off parent returns the favor the next day, having a robocall center call the school board members and superintendant at home at 4:30 AM with his complaint.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...l?hpid=topnews

Quote:
"This is a Prince George's County School District parent, calling to thank you for the robocall yesterday at home at 4:30 in the morning. I decided to return the favor. While I know the school district wanted to ensure I drop my child off two hours late on a snow day, I already knew that before I went to bed. I hope this call demonstrates why a 4:30 a.m. call does more to annoy than to inform.''

It ended: "Quit robocalling parents at 4:30 in the morning or at least allow us to opt out of these intrusive calls."

That's nice. How the new online thing going, by the way, Jinx? I have been wondering.

We don't get calls. Have to listen to the radio, or look it up on their website. We used to have the option to get a text alert, but that didn't seem to work this last time. No text came.

We got a robocall last time. we don't need or want it but can't opt out. I prefer the extra hour or two sleep then check the website. I was going to disconnect the phone before I fell asleep, but I forgot.

Given how easy it is to set these things up, shouldn't it be possible for parents who don't want to opt out completely to set their preferred time of call? Seeing as they do it as a rolling thing that takes an hour or so anyway? I'd opt for the 6:00-6:30 call but 5am does not make me a happy camper.

Fantastic for Spencer, Ripley doesn't like it. She's gonna start at the school across the street for the next marking period. I hope she likes it.... I think she will.

...and how do you like it? How does it compare to your previous home-schooling experience?

I triple dog-dare ya!!

from Here

Quote:
WOODWARD, Okla. — In a scene straight from the movie "A Christmas Story," an 8-year-old Oklahoma boy got his tongue stuck to a metal pole after he licked it on a dare.
Officials say when rescue crews arrived Tuesday morning, the boy was standing on his tiptoes, trying to wriggle his frozen tongue free from a stop sign pole across the street from Woodward Middle School.
Paramedics were able to help the boy by pouring water on his tongue. Once free, the boy told officials he got stuck after his brother dared him to lick the pole.
The boy was taken to a Woodward hospital for treatment.
The scene was similar to one in "A Christmas Story," a 1983 movie adapted from Jean Shepard's memoir of a boy in the 1940s.
