I am perhaps the most idiotic person on the planet. Seriously.

"School's out for summer! School's out for ever!" This song has been recently stuck in my head playing these two lines over and over. And it has a right to be. Because starting tomorrow, I have 4.5 days of school left! Yes! My Freshmen year at high-school is almost done and it's so hard for me to believe! But let me get back to the original point. The title.

Every school year since 7th grade I have gotten a yearbook. Well this year, I knew that my ninth grade yearbook was going to be huger and heavier than the two previous yearbooks that I had. I mean, it had four grades instead of two, fall/winter/spring sports, the seven different choirs, drama, leadership, elective classes, and a whole lot more is what the yearbook would have. I bought my $45.00 dollar yearbook the same time that I paid my second semester $15.00 digital photo fee. I thought nothing of the yearbook until the time that I needed to get it.

It was now May 28th, 2010. The day the yearbooks would be distributed. I was super excited. I mean, who wouldn't be?! During lunch I asked my friend where I could find the list to see if I could get my yearbook that day. You see, if your name wasn't on the list, you had to wait until Tuesday June 1st for your yearbook. Well, I went to the list and I looked at it. I didn't see my name on the list. It was alphabetical by last name and I did not see my name. Damn.

I did not get my yearbook on the 28th. I went through the rest of the school day in a tizzy. I was so mad. When my mom got home from work I told her what happened and she went on a rampage. We located the copy of the check that she wrote and I knew that that would help. I left a little earlier from my house on Tuesday to head to the Business Office to straighten out the problem. The lady I talked to was really nice and she used to work at my elementary school so she knew me better than most of the other students.

I told her what the problem was and she looked up my name on the computer and she said that I had paid. I was so confused and I asked her what the list was. She looked at me with a puzzled look. I told her about the list to the right of me, the one that my friend told me about at lunch.

The lady laughed, not meanly, and she said. "Oh that list is for seniors who haven't paid their fee's yet. You don't want to be on that list." I felt like the biggest idiot. I was so embarrassed and I still feel like an idiot. Ugh.

Well at least you don't owe any fines.

That's what happens when you listen to your friends and do not look into it yourself. And I did not go into a rampage! Just a mild hissy fit.

Dear Animal Lover,

I was laughing at the post just from the title! Great writing style!

We've all done stupid things like that. It's good to be reminded of our own humanity from time to time. :)
