Parent teacher interviews tonight

And I fortuitously came across a tweet buddy's list of least favourite things:

2. Parent / Teacher Interviews

These things scared the hell out of me at school, which is surprising considering I was never in trouble, always did my homework and was by no means the biggest smart-arse in any of my classes.

Now, as an adult with friends who are parents and teachers, I realise that nobody enjoys them. Everybody feels stressed and everybody feels judged. The kids worry the teachers will dob on them to their parents, the teachers worry that the parents will be just as big a shits as their loathsome offspring and blame them for all their inadequacies, and the parents are terrified that they'll be told they're incompetent.
