So I have no name for this story. But here it goes.

I was at work when I got a call from a parent. She was in the estate where the school I work in is located. She said she needed the school driver to bring her son {3 years old} to the hospital that she needed him to go through some test cause he has been sick for some days.

I wanted to help but, it wasn’t possible.

  • For me to release her kid, she needs to come to school to do it the proper way.
  • For me to release her kid, I have to be certain that she has passed through the proper authorities.
  • I can’t even release her kid cause the school driver wasn’t available to do the driving
  • I can’t release her kid because I can’t let the school driver take her son to him.

There are so many reasons I can’t mention right now as to why I couldn’t do what she wanted me to do.

Then check this. She called the school driver to know if he was around so she could tell him to bring her son. It wouldn’t have worked sha cause I still need to give the go-ahead since I’m in charge.

We talked for a while and I told her why I couldn’t do what she wanted me to do. Her response was, don’t I have feelings? That her son is not feeling well, that is the school more important than his health?

Hian! See me see gbese oh! This woman wants me to lose my job.

I decided to do what I was meant to do in the first place. I told the school proprietress. Her answer was a big gigantic no.

Tor, it was out of my hands.

Anyway, all went well, she came to the school to pick her son. Luckily for her, the proprietor of the school was around and he decided to help by taking her and her son to the hospital.

Parents, biko nu. Don’t make our work hard for us. We are following the rules of the school. If anything was to happen to the child while he was on his way to his mum, I will be the one to carry the blame.

It will be irresponsible of me all because I was to please a parent.

So please parents, let’s try to make life easy for we the teachers and supervisors in schools and organizations.
