Note in my pigeon hole about my #cameltoe 

Today I popped into work ( I know, I know it’s the holiday but I like to be on top of things) and I checked my pigeon hole and there was a letter for me. How nice I hear you say, but this wasn’t a thank you card. This was a request. You can read it yourself…….

My first thought was of horror, how dare those boys discuss me in such a degrading way. This isn’t ok. Would they discuss the male staff in this way? And I don’t dress proactive way. These are linen brown flairs from Next and I am a 40+ woman. But what am I doing, why am I justifying what I wear, how dare they talk about me in this way. Is this a common discussion they have? If so this worries me even more.

My thoughts then wandered to the pupil who wrote the note. I felt sad that her ( I guess it’s a girl)  only solution was for me not to wear the trousers. It never occurred to her that I didn’t care what those boys thought and neither should she and that they were in the wrong. 

I then started to panic that I did have camel toe and are they too tight? Perhaps I shouldn’t wear them but then what message does the author of the note take from this? No I will not be bullying or made to feel small about this, I think they are smart and comfortable and I will continue to wear them. I wish I could talk through my thoughts with the person that wrote this note. I am so sad that she feels like this. I feel an assembly coming on.
