Am I the only one who thinks parents shouldn't be obligated to buy teacher's presents??
It's getting a bit silly. They get paycheques for their work, people understand that right?
I can understand a card or small homemade gift to show appreciation, but it's starting to become a custom to purchase a gift to the point it's almost an obligation.
Personally I find it distasteful. If a child or parent genuinely was touched by a teacher's work, fine. But these parents organzing a group gift and then looking down on the parents that don't want to participate, expensive spa day gift ect. I think it's crazy.
Am I the only one who thinks this is stupid? What's next? Should we start buying gifts for our mailman, grocery store clerk, our doctor and hairdresser too?
