Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

**EDIT** What exactly does a PTA mom look like....

Posted by   + Show Post
Because apparently I don't fit the description. My daughters first day of kindergarten is tomorrow and yesterday I was at the school dropping off papers. Well this really nice lady was talking to me and asked me if I would be joining the PTA, before I could even answer this snooty looking bitch of a lady looks at both of us and says "I don't think you really look like a PTA mom, we don't have your kind in our group". Wtf kind of shit is that?! I'm pretty sure everybody in the office had their mouths drop open. Yes I have tattoos and piercings and I was wearing a tank and shorts, so is that what she was referring to? So ladies what exactly does a PTA have to look like? Should I have worn slacks and a button down lol?! I also had my 6 week old dd with me and when she seen her she kind of stuck her nose up in the air and made a sound. I swear it took everything I had not to knock the bitch out lol. Anyone else ever been told they don't fit a certain description?

**EDIT** thanks for all the funny replies and some good advice! As for the few anon haters...it is what it is and I got a laugh out of your bullshit too!

Quoting Bellum:

Don't let that chick stop you from joining.  Not all of us are that judge mental.

Lol I guess so. I'm 28 years old, have a beautiful family, nice car, good job and just because someone doesn't look all rich and stuffy they get judged. I'm sure you know what I mean. It's bs! Lol idk how I didn't punch her....I should've tripped her lol


Quoting mellienium:

you're expected to look old and haggard -- don't look like you enjoy life. you'll fit right in! jk jk.

that lady was just plain rude but hey, people judge because that's just how they are. my ss goes to a catholic private school which doesn't help my case.  i have tattoos and piercings too and am wayyy younger than most of the parents (they all look to be mid 30's to 40's) while i'm in my 20's haha! (DH had his son at a young age).  anyways, i've never had anyone say anything to me, but good for you for being able to control yourself!

It was just the way this lady was. Some people are just overly judgmental.

They are, ignore her and go to some of the pto meetings. It's a fun way to get involved in your kids school.
