Haiku Friday: the ooh-she's-a-smart(mouthed)-kid edition

Smart students had cake, bagels
And an honor roll.















Bwahahahahaha!!!

Some of my many three readers might be wondering whatever happened to the carpool situation.

Well.

Little Miss Carpool Girl had actually been pretty well-behaved, answering her phone properly and all. But she and Roo-girl kinda got into it over an unkept confidence (CPG was the blabber, Roo was the wounded party) and it's been a little testy.

Leading up to Thursday morning's earlier run to the middle school for the honor roll breakfast.

Were we taking CPG to school (since we had to be there an hour early for the brekkie)? Or were we not?

We let her know about this on Tuesday -- and Roo called her on Wednesday. Evidently CPG told Roo she would call her back.

Or not.

So we tear-ass out of our driveway today and Roo makes her customary call to CPG's phone.

Uh-oh. Voicemail.

And here is the message that my take-no-prisoners daughter with the GIANT cojones left:

Ya know, CPG, it's REALLY annoying -- and rude -- when you don't answer your phone. And also when you say you're going to call back and you DON'T.

So you can find your OWN way to school this morning.

Harsh.

On the other hand, she says what she means and she means what she says.

And holy crap!! Don't cross that girl!

maggie's mind said...

I went and got caught up on the previous post, and, yep, that's a message a long time coming, and go Roo-Girl for telling it like it is.

Cut haiku honor roll, too!

Toni said...

Hey, that's great. Don't mess with Roo!

Simply Jenn said...

Dear dear Janet, I knew someone I really liked had posted about the pancakes and thst Jenny was a total copycat. I'm sorry for contributing to the plagiarism.

The poem cracks me up.

Jenni said...

Way to go, Roo!

Mishi said...

Roo is a force to be reckoned with! GO GIRL!

Janet said...

Not harsh at all. How many chances do you have to give someone? Enough is enough. I wish I had some of her chutzpah (is that even close to being spelled right?) I hate confrontations.
Still grinning and wincing at the same time over the honor roll.

Sadie said...

Harsh, perhaps. But she was right to do it...I mean how many of US haven't wanted to point out rudeness to a teen? *lol*

Go Roo Girl!

Junebug said...

I read the post about your Z-man leaving for college. I only have one son and that's similar to my situation. My son is only one hour away so he comes home every week, sometimes more often if he can think of an excuse.

DIXIECHICK said...

Good for you Roo Girl!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Roo-girl and I could totally be BFF's (if I weren't a bajillion years older than her). She rocks!

Kathryn said...

Hahaha!! I love that haiku. Great job!
Way to go, Roo!

Yay, Roo! Well done. Well said. If she still doesn't get it, whack her one with your cast.

Burfica said...

Wow!! Evident she learned from a very strong amazing mom!!!

The Laundress~JJ! said...

Wow.

I'd give anything to have Roo's balls.

The Immoral Matriarch said...

Honor roll - LOLOL
*slaps knee in fit of laughter*

I like Roo. She's somethin' else!

And I was wondering about the carpool thing, but I didn't want to be all needy and stalkerish and ask you.

Jules said...

I like this Roo. She speaks it like it is.

Mom24 said...

That's awesome...sometimes you just need to tell it like it is. I really, really wish I could teach my 16 year old that skill.

Rebecca said...

Heheh...

Melissa said...

Roo-girl? Is awesome! She'll do just fine in HS. :)

Scylla said...

Wow, I really like Roo's attitude. She will do very well as a lawyer, should she ever chose to be one.

We lack the ability to grin and bear it.

tumblewords said...

The 'ku is one of the very funniest! Love it!

AtomiK Kitten said...

Mmm! A roll! How yummy is that?

Go Roo girl! That's my kind of girl! I hope my boys marry girls that say what the mean and mean what they say!

Robinella said...
