I just put money into Missy's lunch acct last Tues. Since it's the end of the year, I only put in enough for just that. She doesn't buy lunch everyday and took lunch 3 days this week. When she doesn't take lunch, I make sure she takes enough snacks to keep her going. I was expecting her to buy lunch today, but was informed that she owes money!!! What???? she only bought 5 lunches, so she spent $7.50 on snacks and then some, because we owe money! This kid packs FOUR snacks a day and I just found out she's been buying snacks on top of it! I've just spent the better part of 15 minutes ranting about this to her. She's lost the privledge of buying snacks with her lunch card....FOREVER! I just wrote the lunch ladies a note to remove that ability from her card. She's come home several days acting hyper, manic and irritable. She admitted that she "accidentally" bought Doritos....you know, the kind that have all kinds of food coloring in them. So, she "accidentally" probably bought lots of other things that she's not allowed to have either. Sheesh, I really try to give her some responsibility and she takes advantage of the situation. I warned her that if she did this, she would lose the ability to buy snacks. To her, snacks are her world!
