do you think it could have been the shoes?
Walking into work last week, I was greeted by the Principal. (In case you missed it, I returned to the workforce at the start of the year at a local high school)
The Principal - "You'll need to be at least five minutes earlier tomorrow" *Insert quite a stern face*
I was slightly perplexed, especially as I was already at least 15 minutes earlier than my start time (yes I am THAT person, early for everything! I hate to be late.) as a part timer I start a wee bit after school starts.
I smiled and nodded and walked on, still more than a little confused. As I continued to walk on, I heard her say the same thing again, on turning around I noticed this time the phrase was repeated to a student. It then dawned on me, the principal thought I was a student! A tardy student at that!
I had a little chuckle, I'm almost in my mid thirties and most of the time I have two kids in tow so being mistaken for a high school student is certainly not something that happens to me. As I sat down at my desk, I wondered, could it have been the shoes? What do you think?
