tonight no. 1 son will be involved in a concert at the opera house. today he had to attend school in the morning and then travel by train to a different campus and meet up with the rest of his group for the afternoon's rehearsals. he happened to forget his hat so i drove over to the school to meet him as he switched campuses. when he arrived at the 9ft gate it was padlocked and he was going to have to find another way out.
what i can't understand is this: only two boys from his school were attending the concert and i thought that the school should be proud to be represented, don't you think it would have been nice to have gate unlocked for them? and just maybe a lift to the other campus?
i think sometimes adults forget to be properly considerate of young people. we have our comfortable lives with drivers licences and keys to anything we might want to access and so on....
i have seen this type of thing happen before
