We have voicemail at our school and I have 1 parent who calls almost every day! It's driving me crazy! I'm constantly having to check my VM because she calls at the most random times. Her VM's are over the dumbest things that I feel I really don't have time for. She leaves the longest VM's as well that I have to listen to 5 min of her rambling before I know if she needs me to call me back. We have had VM at our school for 3 years and I only had to check it like once a week and usually there were no VM's now if I do that I'll have like 10 calls from her. Don't get me wrong she's nice and they never are a big deal, but she for example will call to let me know her son is bringing birthday cards to school (even though I have had not to) she'll say I know we're not supposed to, but this is the only way we can invite friends, will you help him pass them out? Then when school starts she'll write a note saying the same thing. I'm venting but I'm really getting sick of her VM's all the time. I can't not check them because what if there was an emergency or problem with another parent, but I'm so sick of hers. I'm thinking of asking the secretary to just take a message (it would be quicker for me to read, but then I could see her wanting me to call her back) Sorry, I just need to vent but if anyone has any ideas I would sure appreciate it besides knowing I only have 6 more months with this mother Aggghhhhh!!!!
