The words you are looking for are "Sorry" and "Thank You"

I spent the better part of yesterday tracking down parents who hadn't turned in their daughter's measurements for recital costumes. Even if one girl forgets, I can't do the order. So, most parents I call are very quick and helpful getting me the info, but seriously. There are about 3 dance moms  that are on my rude list. One mom, not EVEN apologetic for forgetting, seems annoyed that she has to measure her daughter. Didn't even say thanks. RUDE. Called one mom twice, still hasn't got me the info. She was the mom that still complains that her daughter's costume wasn't "custom fit" to her last year. I could go on with the events of yesterday....but I won't. Let's just say it sucked my day away. Plus, I have a KILLER cold that made it all the yuckier. RUDE PEOPLE!!!!!!

"Sorry" you had a bad day. "Thank you" for sharing.

Can I just say that you are the greatest dance teacher ever! I really miss having my girls go to you. You are EXTREMELY affordable, your costumes are ADORABLE, but the greatest part is the creativity you share with the girls and how much you build up their self esteem. Really, these ugly moms don't know a good thing when they have it.
I'm sorry. Thanks for being you!

I seriously can't believe how rude those moms are. I should call them and tell them what I am paying in recital fee and costume for my 3 yr old to be in the recital this summer--outrageous! That's why she is coming to your studio as soon as the recital is over!

Phew! At least I know I got our measurements in... On time even. It's frustrating when people don't value anyone's time but their own.

I am so "sorry" that people are so rude....I can't believe that you have to deal with people like that. "Thank you" for being such an awesome teacher....Cambree LOVES YOU! She gets dressed in her dance clothes every day and asks if it is "dance day" and is so sad if it isn't. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all that you do!!!!!!

I think parents are probably always the worst part about teaching kids.

Good luck!

I'm sorry you had a bad day. People need lessons on how to be nice. I swear somebody forgot to tell people about the Thumper rule!!!
