As many of you know I moonlight as a Nanny. Er...sunlight as a Nanny...moon...sun...NannyLite. I'm a Nannylite. Anyways, one of my 12 year olds came home from school today venting about some snobby girl on her bus who's always bragging about her cellphone and rich parents and what not (yes, a 12 year old with her own cellphone). And she was like "I hate that we still invite her to parties and stuff even though she's been so mean to us." So, naturally, because I love tween drama, I ask what SnobbyCell has done. The response was this:
"Well the last time we didn't include her in something she made a PowerPoint about why she hated us and emailed it to the entire 6th grade."
Take a moment. Absorb. Discuss.
A PowerPoint of Hate. She didn't just hate you enough to send a nasty email. She had enough reasons to hate you to create an organized and bulleted slideshow. So now kids are not only using IM to bully each other but now they must even abuse Microsoft Office.
Actually, I think I'm going to start making PowerPoints to get my "points" across. Get it?? POINTS!? Then after I send the PowerHate, I'll be all "You just got OFFICED!".
Kids today. I blame the rap music.
And the processed foods.
And the disinterested parents.
And MySpace. Because everything is MySpace's fault.
