This isn't a vent, more of a "hurt." I'm asked to contribute money for other teacher's birthdays on my same grade level. Recently however, it was my birthday, and no one did a thing. Now, I'm not saying I expect a gift, or that I'm trying to be childish... but then I feel it's only right not to contribute money to OTHER people either on our same grade. I'm not that stupid! I need to stick up for myself. I don't like to say anything... but if someone demands that I give something, I will have to say why. Is this wrong of me? I know it wasn't personal, I'm just not part of their little "clique."
