Plenty of people complain about school run mums and their selfish attitudes but I'd like to gripe about a particular type of school run mum, the ones that drop their kids of at private schools.
On my 19 mile drive to work I pass 6 different schools so I leave 15-20 minutes earlier than I would need to at any other time of the day to account for getting stuck behind the school buses. Notwithstanding this I always hit the junction where there is a large private school at around 08:45 am. Prime dropping off time.
The turning into the school is roughly in the middle of a 500 yard straight section of road, but this doesn't stop the mums that have dropped their little angels off from pulling right out in front of you as if they never saw you. They don't even have the decency to pretend that they never saw you, they see you coming, wait till your close enough that they can look you in the eye and then just pull out! I think they assume they have right of way because they drive a big 4x4 or a BMW and can afford to send their children to private school. They're such ignorant people!
I wouldn't mind so much if they pulled out and sped off with their big engines, but no, they cause you brake hard enough to bang your head on the steering wheel and then your stuck behind them puttering along at 35-40 mph because they don't have a job to get to. Its not just one mum either, its all of them and it only happens at that school, not the other half dozen schools that I pass on my way to work. All my neighbours that use that route to work also complain about them, but we are at a loss as to what can be done about them!
