Apparently, some of the children’s parents had been complaining about the situation in their classroom group chat. He attempted to detail the whole situation to his wife, and she sort of understood his perspective.
“But she was still mad at me because I went too far by calling the cops, to which I told her I had no option,” he recalled.
Anyway, for the rest of the school week, he did not encounter any more problems while trying to pick up his daughter. Still, some of the other parents started giving him bad looks, and he just tried to ignore them.
His wife finally returned home yesterday from her work trip, too. However, she did not forget about the incident at their daughter’s school.
She is still really angry at him for being “rude” to both the school staff and her friends. Yet, he simply doesn’t understand how he was in the wrong at all.
“I honestly don’t get how I was rude. If anything, the school is the rude one for not letting me take my daughter even when I explained and gave proof of being the father,” he vented.
Thankfully, since his wife is home, there haven’t been any more issues with the school. Nonetheless, with her still angry at him, he’s now wondering whether he really was a jerk to the school staff and the other parents.
Can you understand why he was frustrated? At the same time, isn’t it a good thing that the school and other parents cared so much about his daughter’s safety that they didn’t want her to leave with someone they didn’t know? Could he have handled this situation better?
