Was chatting to my boss's boss (in the US) yesterday, and his 6 year old has an immune disorder that they've been spending a lot of time getting to the bottom of. Time and money. Lots of money. So much money they've had to sell their house and move into rented accommodation. I looked up the salary range for his level, and it's between $142k-213k. Like what the actual fuck? How does anyone in a normal job survive at all?

as a friend living in the states pointed out, he reckons so many americans are against socialised medicine because they believe the price medical there costs, is normal, and would have to be borne by the state.

Oh no, that fucking sucks. Really sorry to hear that
yeah... primary school though. FFS.
I thought kids at that age wouldn't be hateful little fucks yet. I get that second level is a lion's den, but... yeah.

Anyway, I wrote an email telling them unless this stops immediately, I take the kids out of that school. No emotion, just a statement of facts. I won't have my kids in a primary school where they don't feel comfortable and safe. It's very simple.

So my kids got abuse for being Americans on their first day at primary school, and arrived home in tears.

Sound.

I just told the kids to tell everyone at school "yeah, we're American, and you know how American kids deal with systemic bullying? *automatic gun fire noises* ...And I'm making a list."


I reckon that should solve the situation.
It's going to be tricky enough for me to find kid friendly machine guns, but, where there's a will... :)
