A night set aside so that a teacher can tell parents that their child is a monster.

Don't you just hate parent teacher night. You work all day long and all you want to do is be off of work and eat dinner but no, you have to go to your kid's school and figure out what kind of crap he's managed to get himself into in only a few short weeks of starting back. The teachers will show you what they're working on in class and then when it comes time to leave, without fail, you get pulled aside and are told that your kid glued another kid's pants to a seat or something. Awesome, but couldn't you have just sent a note or called the house? That would save everyone a lot of time. The only good thing about that night is all the single moms that are up there looking for something to do later that parent teacher night.
