“No Turkey for Me, Thank you!”

Description from Southern Chick: I was sooo excited about being able to go to Istanbul and the other areas nearby in the fall, but when I spoke with my principal, he said he couldn't let me go that long! I'm really upset, hence, the dark pick...sorry! You can compare it to my "I'm going to Turkey" pick...some difference

    I must be getting hungry — I thought at first this had to do with food!!! LOL Sorry to hear your trip is off — what a downer. :-( Great pick, though!

    Southern Chick says:

    Nope LE, food isn’t it at all…I’m so upset! In Va. we could actually use trips towards recertification! Not here in NC that land of the cut salaries etc.

    What a shame — that would have been such an exiting place to visit, too.

    My husband’s job ends at the end of June and he will hopefully get another one that won’t even be in this state…Then I’d be able to go…

    Southern Chick says:

    My husband says he’s going to get me there sometime soon. This was just a half free trip…His is free and we’d pay for mine. The principal still wouldn’t budge….Unfortunately, there are so many people looking for jobs…I don’t dare try to leave.

    can u still go but a shorter trip? or will that make it too short? hope it works out for you and you still get to go.

    I just went back and looked at and read the posts on your “I’m Going to Turkey” pick. I missed it because I was out of town. It is a gorgeous pick and I could sense the excitement you had for the trip! Hopefully, it will still work out for you one day. :-)

    Southern Chick says:

    I hope so too. I really need to say bye for now. Thanks for talking to me Eileen…I needed some venting room!

    That is too bad Donna.
    I still say you find a medical clinic to visit and make it sick time! you know, it’s the only place you can go for treatment of your rare, unpronounceable condition.

    southern chick, so sorry to hear that your principal won’t allow you to go to Turkey, hopefully it will still work out for you to go at some point, I’m so glad your husband supports you in wanting to go with you to visit Turkey!
    yep I too thought of the turkey we eat originally upon seeing your Pick title…

    Anytime, Donna — that’s what we Chicks are here for! :-D

    Southern Chick says:

    Jeanne, I’m soooo tempted. Do you remember the pick awhile back that had all those horrible diseases made from the gems and stones? Wonder if a shopping trip would cure severe Agatenitis or the painful Abalone Absess? lol

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    LOL :D

    Somehow I missed that one – but a shopping trip certainly can’t hurt!
    I’m glad you took my comment the right way. My sarcasm has been known to get me into trouble. I do feel your pain. Hopefully you will get to go with him some other time.

  15. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Yep…My mouth is always getting me into trouble…sarcasm, blah, blah…you name it..I do wish that I could remember some of the other illnesses and find that pick, though. They were hilarious. I’ll look back and see if I can find it.

    CAS says:

    I’d write you a nurse’s note if you thought that it would help, Donna. Your Principil is “a rotten meany” for not letting you go.

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    That would be great. Oh – and something important to know about me- I am only openly sarcastic to people I care about.

  18. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Well I feel so LOVED! Sarc on girlfriend! My husband NEEDS his computer now…Love to you all…Talk to you soon…Hope I don’t get swallowed up by the paperwork! Pray for me!

    Southern Chick says:

    Thanks CAS Can you make my excuse look really official!?

    just want to throw my two cents…your prinicpal is ******* for not giving you the time off for a once in a lifetime trip!

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I’m sorry to hear that!!! Sounds to me like Principals don’t become anymore endearing when your grown-up then when you were young!!!! Well, I say poopy on him!!!!lol…. Boy am I tough or what???

  22. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Mystic chick…I’m sorry that I missed your comment/question. No I can’t go for a shorter amount of time…I thought about that too.

  23. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Anita…would you come and take my principal on for me? Really, he’s a nice guy, he just can’t “justify” it to the county…

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Have fun with your paperwork! That’s what I should be doing, too. Actually, I turned the computer on so I could input assessment scores on the on line data management system (that’s a mouthful) once the computers on – can’t ignore the chickies! LOL

  25. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    To true! I haven’t been online with the chicks in days…

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I gotta run now, too. Test scores, baby blankets and necklaces await me. This has been great tonight. Hubby’s upstairs on his computer, so he’s not missing me, yet. Maybe I’ll check back later.

    Southern Chick says:

    Its been good to get back in touch with everyone again…

    movie chick aka susan says:

    Apologies if my comment came across harsh…been one of those afternoons…just remember how much you want to go on the trip and I don’t like seeing any of chickies disappointed!

  29. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Well, you’d think the county could do something in appreciation for years of hard work!!! They sure are’nt quick to do it with money!!!! I’m one of those “oddities” who actually thinks teachers are GREAT!!!!! I’d laugh, but, it’s too true to be funny!!

  30. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Oh Southern Chick, I’m so sorry your trip got 86′d! However, Turkey could be the cure for a nasty case of Gemulitis (See: Under the Microscope – for more dreadful bead disorders!)…I really am sorry – I know how disappointed you are…

  31. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Hey Black Leopardskin and Brown Rhodo are perfect together! Love it! Still sorry, though!! :(

  32. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Oh, Southern Chick, I’m sorry about your trip! People in my district are always taking off to go on cruises (cheap Jan./Feb. fares), and no one says a word about it. I’m just so sorry. Hopefully, you will move to another, more understanding, state! Good for your husband in standing up for you, too.

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Southern Chick, I’m so sorry to hear your news. I did see the pick when you were so excited, and enjoyed reading the comments. I think your principal needs to get a spine, and get a little creative to “justify” your absence to the county! It really is a shame it has to be this way.

    Not to trivialize, but if it’s not this trip, I hope you will have the opportunity for another, better one. I do understand your disappointment and send you hugs.

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Oh, that’s too bad!! I’m sorry, you must be SO disappointed right now. But maybe this cancelled trip is making room for something even better! You never know… :(
