1. It's Monday night and you are once again subjecting yourself to another tortuous Common Core
2. Your middle-schooler gets detention for passing out opt-out forms on school grounds.
3. You've been to so many school board meetings that they had your name engraved on a chair.
4. Kinko's asks you "More opt-out forms for you today?" the minute you walk in the door.
5. Your kindergarten child is overheard telling a classmate that she is "unilaterally opposed to high stakes testing."
6. The people in your school's office refuse to make eye contact anymore and take your form without saying a word.
7. The district curriculum developer refers to you as "that woman."
8. Your high school kid unfriends you on Facebook because you keep posting the link to United Opt-Out.
9. You keep your hand up at meetings and they NEVER call on you
10. Teachers tell you stories off the record and make you promise never to tell ANYONE ever...
