So, when we were in Georgia, Mickelle had to call Marley's school to tell them why she was going to be absent. When she told them it was for a funeral, the lady on the phone, bluntly said, "you'll need to bring in an obituary or a note from the funeral director for it to be a 'legal' absence."
It's a good thing I wasn't the one on the phone because I would've ripped that lady apart. It reminds me of that scene in Ferris Buellar's Day Off when Ed Rooney tells Simone's "dad" on the phone, "You roll her old bones on over here, and I'll dig up your daughter."
The gall of some people to have the nerve to ask for an obituary to excuse a farking kindergarten absence when someone is grieving.
Tough talk from little people.
