This has been bothering me since church Sunday morning. A church member, whose great granddaughter I teach in Sunday School (when she can come), said something to me that I can't get past. I have really been struggling with this, and it's been eating at me. Before Sunday School we have donuts and orange juice in the fellowship hall. I went in to get the SunnyD label off the bottle (because our class is collecting them). This older lady comes up to me and starts laying into me about my principal (my boss). Apparently the grandmother and great grandmother were up at the school Friday to check to see if the granddaughter had been in counseling. I guess she is required to, because of a court order. Dad has legal custody but grandmother took him to court to be able to see her. Anyway, the older lady starts in on me "Can you believe that woman?! She had the gaul to call so-and-so! She must be a real B****!" I was so shocked. I didn't know what to say to her. After a moment I told her that my boss was a very nice lady. She was probably just calling who she is supposed to, to make sure she is covered by law. Basically I told her that my boss was doing her job like she was supposed to, that she was a very nice woman, and I enjoyed working for her. Then I turned around and walked off to my classroom. Ever since, I have been thinking about this moment. I just don't want to get in the middle of the situation. I only teach the child when she is at church, and never see her at school. I need some words of wisdom.
