There’s a lot of sitting quietly, waiting patiently, and then responding quickly when your name is called.
One of the People in Charge just said to her group, in a most harsh and condescending tone:
“This is like kindie-garden. You need to turn on your listening ears, and know who your partner is as we travel through the hallways. We are all adults here, people.”
First of all, as a former kindergarten teacher, please don’t call it kindie-anything.
Second, that last statement sums it up. We are all adults.
Now if you’ll just direct me to my partner, my place in line, and the fingerpaints.
