Would you rather deal with the IRS or with the PTO?
You probably had to take a second to think about that. Answering questions related to purchases made years ago, deductions made, and other boring nonsense sounds pretty bad. But then you realize that the PTO acts both as a mafia of sorts and treats you like you’re a lower tier drug dealer, and you might start to realize that the IRS isn’t the worst thing in the world.
“Get out there with these packs of way overpriced M&Ms and don’t come back until they’re gone.”
“Little Peter can only sell 10 tins of popcorn? Get his butt back out in front of the Walmart ’til they’re gone.”
“Each child was supposed to raise $300 for this fundraiser. Your child raised $298.12. You think that’s acceptable? Hit. The. Streets. Find that money or else!”
Or something like that.
Any good, over-the-top PTO stories to share?
