A PTA in Rockland, Texas decided to cut to the chase: f*ck bake sales. F*ck them right in the ear.
The options on this form are all things most of us are too polite to say outside the privacy of our catalogue-filled kitchen. That's what makes this note so very, very refreshing. There's even a payment option allowing you to buy a complete erasure of your name from all future PTA fundraising efforts. That's worth so much more than a box of stale donut holes could ever supply.
The woman who posted it, Dee Wise Heinz, wrote in the comments:
I'm all about helping out at the schools and supporting my children, but when you have 3 kids in school who are also doing extra-curricular activities as well, sometimes even one "simple" fundraiser is just more than I can tackle. It's never that simple, and in our house, it's never just one. I loved their sense of humor, obviously coming from parents who've been-there-done that, and they understand.
Exactly. Being a parent is a huge job even before you start running a small business on the side to pay for soccer jerseys. Break out the checkbooks and move on with your lives!
