It was my very first day of high school. I was awkward and nervous and the school was three times the size of my last school. I got lost going to my third period class and some senior showed me how to get there. Then when it came lunch time, I was overwhelmed at the amount of students that were in the cafeteria fighting their way through the huge line to get crappy school lunch food. In my area, my high school was the largest high school around. For example, Boyfriend graduated with a class of 58. I graduated with a class of 630.
Anyways, I saw my older sister walking towards the cafeteria doors which was where I was standing in line to get food. I opened the door, waved her in, and let her cut in front of me. The Vice Principal appeared out of freaking no where, got in my face and said, “MY OFFICE! NOW!”
I nearly cried. No lie. She didn’t follow me to her office though. I actually had to go to the Principal’s office and ask where the Vice Principal’s office was. He showed me. I went to open the door and it was locked. So I sat down in front of the door and waited.
For 45 minutes.

She looked at me really strangely and said, “Who are you?”
I said. “I bet you went and ate your lunch, didn’t you?”
She stood up then. “Did I send you to my office?”
“Yes you did. I sat on the dirty floor waiting and you never showed.”
“What were you in trouble for?”
I stopped pacing her floor then and looked at her. “It must not have been too serious if you don’t even remember.” And then I left.
Three DAYS later, I passed her in the hallway. She stopped me and said, “I remember now.”
Apparently opening the cafeteria door and letting someone cut in line is “completely forbidden” in high school. I explained that it was my sister and I just needed her to help me figure out what to do and where to go. I got detention. No freaking joke.
To this day, I cannot stand that woman. I actually see her in town every once in a while and if looks could kill, we’d both be dead.
