Me: How did Paolo’s drop-off go today? Did you look for the missing library book?
Sam: I didn’t get a chance to talk to his teacher about the book because she had something to say to me. Apparently, yesterday at lunch Paolo would not sit down and stop shouting until they threatened to call his dad.
Me: Really? Our Paolo?
Sam: Yeah. So after I gave Paolo a talking-to while the teacher watched, I didn’t feel like bringing up the library book.
Me: Wow. I wonder why they threatened to call you. Why wouldn’t they say they were going to call me?
Sam: Because I’m the parent that walks him all the way to the classroom. You just drop him off at the front door like a stray dog.
