To be angry at being "checked out" by other dads on the school run?

I dread the school run, i'm not really stunningly beautiful or anything but do get looked at by other dads while they're waiting for their children -HOW BLOODY INAPPROPRIATE - what a bunch of desparados.
So I try to look as 'ordnary' as possible, maybe I should change schools [hmm}

It's probably because you're so drop dead gorgeous

Suck it up............... or wear a black bin liner. Men look and so do women. Fact of life.

It's a burden and no mistake

Is this a troll post because you sound utterly mad! Most likely they aren't 'checking you out', they just want to make conversation like parents do. Male, female it's all irrelevant. Could you try talking to them as people perhaps instead of being convinced they are desperate to get in your knickers! I'm sure they have much prettier wives at home grin

Have you got big tits? Perhaps they're looking at those.

Is it the combination of thigh high boots, fur coat and no knickers which makes them ogle you?

have you tried wearing clothes?

oh please - get over yourself. TBH If they ARE looking at you (which I doubt) then count yourself lucky - soon you will be old, saggy and no body will bother and then you will have something to moan about.

How "ordinary" are you dressing? In my school everybody must be half dressed and half asleep because I haven't seen anyone yet checking on each other.

BTW, the use of the word "other" in your title suggests that you are infact male yourself.

SolidGhoulBrass Mon 19-Oct-09 15:15:51

Are you noticeably, visibly different to the majority of parents eg much younger/older, dress in an eye-catching way or belong to a different ethnic group? If you look a little unusual, people will look at you, doesn't mean they mean any harm.

That's a good point LilRedWG - I wonder if someone is off school sick, or has broken up for half term somewhere.

OP I sympathise. Just today I was walking past a school, minding my own business, not even dropping off a child and one of the bastards started humping my leg.

thesunshinesbrightly Mon 19-Oct-09 15:17:50

LilRedWG, yes, you have a point well spotted grin

Show of hands- wonderful comment.

GypsyMoth Mon 19-Oct-09 15:23:19

shouldn't you be on the school run now anyway??

Iklboo Mon 19-Oct-09 15:24:35

Honestly it's like hounds after foxes if I go anywhere near the schoo. It's part of the reason I let DH pick DS up from school. He can run faster than me

deaddei Mon 19-Oct-09 15:24:50

That's where she's gone- tripping away in her heels.

It's the constant autograph signing that bugs me at home time. How am I supposed to locate two book bags and school coats, and look at a collage whilst trying to sign someone's copy of the Daily Star?
