The school pick up line can be brutal. Some pick up lines are better than others, but I can tell by the posts that appear from friends in my social media feeds that the school pick up line is still a source of contention, even this far into the school year. The school pick up line conundrum is real. Do I show up extremely early to get a good spot in line or do I arrive a few minutes late and wind up in the back of the line (but maybe with a shorter wait time)? I don’t think there’s a correct answer, and there is no way to completely eliminate waiting in the school pick up line for parents of car riders. Instead, we can only find ways to pass the time.
