my 14yr old son went for a school trip today with school to alton towers and was due home around 7-7.30 as i dont have a car at the mo my son told me his mates dad was collecting them both from the school car park and dropping him of at home
so i waited till 8.15 and no sign of my son so i phoned my sons friends mother and asked if she had collected my son she said that her son and my son were on different coaches and she had waited a while for my sons bus but it hadnt come so she came home i said but i thought u were collecting him she said yes but we did wait but no sign of coach so i said to her well i havent got a car or anything even if he had walked home he would of been home by now (20 min walk) i will have to get his dad to come over and look 4 him and she just said oh dear!!!
so i had been pacing the streets with his dad driving around luckily he found my son at the bus stop where he had been waiting for an hour,
i just cant believe they could drive of and leave because my sons bus didnt arrive within minutes and even if they did she had my no why couldnt they have phoned me and said they were sick of waiting and could someone else collect him. my son didnt get home till 8.50
and i have been sat here thinking she hasnt even phoned me back to see if i had found my son for all she knows he could be lying in a ditch somewhere!!
am i overreacting here or would u feel the same?
