Last night was my daughter’s last Girl Scout meeting of the year. I’ve had trouble with my cars lately and wasn’t sure if I could get her there. She really wanted to go, so her friend’s mother offered to give her a ride to and from the meeting.
I don’t know this woman well, but I do know her casually. Her little girl has slept over our house a number of times and I’ve always chatted with the mother at the Girl Scout meetings.
The meeting was over at 8:00 P.M. and I expected them home around 8:30 or 8:45 the latest.
By 9:00, they weren’t home yet and I began to be concerned a little bit. 9:30, they weren’t home and now I was worried. 10:00, not home yet and I’m really getting worried. At this time, my husband went out to see if he could still find them at the meeting place, but they weren’t there, the whole place was closed up. He’s driving around town looking for a sign of something but got nothing. When he called and told me that, I lost it. I was crying and shaking and thinking of something terrible happening to my little girl. It was now about 10:40.
I tried calling the Girl Scout leader’s house and there was no answer. I called the mother’s house and only got an answering machine. I was about to call the police when they finally pulled up and 11:00 P.M.
It seems that the mother decided to take the girls out for ice cream and spend a long time chatting with the Girl Scout leader and the ice cream place. I wouldn’t have minded that so much. IF SOMEONE WOULD HAVE FUCKING TOLD ME !
How hard could it have been to tell me ahead of time that’s what she was planning ? She’s got a cell phone, was it that difficult to call me and tell me where they were ?
I was a fucking disaster area !
What the hell is wrong with people?
