They suck you in. They tell you about how they were sucking down martinis while you were watching toddlers swing bats at balls like they are still drunk from last night's party. Oh it sounds sweet. It sounds heavenly even, but here is what they don't tell you.
And try to get out. It's like leaving the mafia. The consequences run deep. Real deep. Who do you offend? The parent? The kid? Both? I'll give you some ideas for getting out of carpool conflict free:
- Break your leg.
- Break your kid's leg.
- Kill your car.
- Show up to the front door drunker than shit, fumes coming off you like you were bathing in straight-up vodka when you were supposed to be doing your run.
