The fact that it is used to discuss the gift for the teacher is already bad, but if thirty pairs of parents start sharing joys and sorrows on it, you wish that the phenomenon of group chat had never been invented.

“There were pings, beeps, lights going off all day long”

Take it easy: four children, three different schools, four different classes, each with their own friends with invitations to parties and parties, and they all play two sports that require their own apps.
