Eleanor beat the system at school today – keep in mind this is only day two.
See, I’m a food snob. I have no faith in the nutritional soundness of a hot school lunch, and I really don’t mind packing a healthy lunch for my kid. Sadly, Eleanor thinks her packed lunch sucks.
Today, when the teacher counted up which kids wanted what for lunch, Eleanor put her hand up for mac n’ cheese-like-product. The fact that she didn’t have any money for lunch didn’t stop her, and it didn’t stop the school either from serving it. Then they sent me A BILL!
I figured that if she didn’t have any money on her lunch card, she couldn’t eat the crap they serve. She beat the system. She ate at high cal high fat lunch of chocolate milk, pudding, and blasted cheese-ish mac.
I am truly annoyed. I made her eat her sac lunch for dinner, and she still rejected the half- PB&J. So guess what she is getting for breakfast…
I’ve talked to her teacher, and hopefully she will be barred from charging her lunch.
