This is one of those nights that I'm glad that I have a blog. I'm glad that I have a place to write about my feelings and the freedom to put it all out there. Because tomorrow, I have to put these feelings aside and act a completely different way then I want to, or should even have to.
Tonight I worked until 6:30 up at school catching up on work and putting up Christmas decorations. I brought dinner home for my husband and myself and we watched a little t.v. After I finished eating, I got online to check my normal Facebook, e-mail, and school mail even though my husband believes that we shouldn't check work e-mail from home. I don't agree with him and tonight I'm glad that I don't.
I got online and saw that I had two e-mails from a parent in my classroom. I opened up the first e-mail and it went something like this. This parent wrote in the e-mail that I was so sweet in wanting to talk to them about things and then wrote, "NOT!". The parent continued to write and say that it made them not want to collect money for my class Christmas present, but that they guessed they would still try and be nice.
So, this parent obviously was e-mailing someone else, gossiping and complaining about me behind my back, but then accidently sent ME the nasty e-mail that was meant for someone else.
I then opened the next e-mail from this parent and in this e-mail they confessed that the previous e-mail was not meant for me (no DUH) and that they felt like I didn't like talking to them and some other stuff.
I literally could not believe this! I've NEVER had this happen to me before and I have no idea how to handle it. I'm still in shock. What's even worse is that this parent's child is one that I love so much and the child is absolutely precious! I just don't understand it.
I'm so hurt right now. I want to call this person and give them a piece of my mind..but I can't. I have to be professional. Tomorrow when I go to work, I have to act like this isn't a big deal and I'm not hurt. But it's a very big deal.
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
