FLASHING RED LIGHTS: MARCH 1 - DEADLINE
An interesting thing happens at this point more often than not; the parent who couldn't circle a date on the calendar acts like someone who is getting bad service at a restaurant and goes on the offensive, laying into my wife, the dedicated volunteer. The general theme is that this particular person was entitled to a wake up call right before the MARCH 1 - DEADLINE.
If I ever act in a remotely similar fashion at any time in my life, I want the closest person to slug me in the face.
