The teachers are in meetings all day today, and as far as the secretary is aware, will be otherwise occupied for the rest of the week.
Bitchy Secretary: You should have come in yesterday. They were here all afternoon.
Me: Why didn't someone let them know I would be picking the books up? They could have set them aside for me whenever they had time.
Bitchy Secretary: Well, we do need a little notice.
Me: I called the district office last week, and the woman told me she would be calling the principal to give her a heads-up I was coming.
Bitchy Secretary: It's only Wednesday. School doesn't start until the 22nd.
(that's next Monday btw)
Me: I have to have the books before then, I have paperwork due to the district by the 22nd.
Bitchy Secretary: I'm sorry, I don't know what else to tell you.
GAH I hate dealing with these people.
