When parents at schools come together in WhatsApp groups, chaos is sometimes inevitable. An X-user documents a particularly wild argument.

Munich – The Christmas season is contemplative and peaceful – at least in theory. A father and user of X (formerly Twitter) shared posts from a WhatsApp group for parents of a school class. Here, the discussion, where the topic was a Christmas party for the little ones, got completely out of hand. On the social network, the insights into the group led to thousands of likes, and the post went viral. "I felt everything and laughed a lot," admits one user, for example.

"Holy Hell," the X user begins his tweet: "The parent WhatsApp group has exploded. It is about the fact that the class Christmas party (2nd grade) cannot take place as planned in the auditorium because it is not available due to construction work. So suggestions were asked." This is how he describes the initial situation of the group chat. With changed names, he then recounts the further course of events.

Parents quarrel in WhatsApp group: Discussion about Christmas party for second graders escalates

  • Sandra: "Dear parents, the auditorium is being rebuilt, so the Christmas party can't take place there, anyone have an idea how we can still celebrate with the children? LG Sandra."
  • Moni: "Oh, the poor children, they wanted to show something."
  • Sieglinde: "They can, but not in the auditorium as planned, thank you school. But it's also being built everywhere, in our street." This is followed by a hate post about construction work in the village.
  • Gerd: "Yes, it's a real shame, but I personally will make sure that the children can still celebrate!! Get back to me right away."
  • Gisela (Gerd's wife): "Yes, that's impertinence from the school!! You'd have to complain!! AT THE TOP, IT'S BEST!"
  • Franziska: "Complaints don't bring anything, they've already started and don't clear everything out again."
  • Gisela: "Yes, of course, giving up at the slightest headwind, great attitude Franzi."
  • Franziska: "Dear Gisela, save your comment, thank you."
  • Gerd: "Just got on the phone, we can have the pub up in the village! I pay for that too!! Then the kids can have fun and we parents can have a drink while doing it."
  • Sandra: "A pub is not a place where a class Christmas party should take place."
  • Gerd: "Yes, there's nothing to it!! I've taken care of it now and pay for it, I've already clarified the drinks issue, we'll get 3 kegs!!"
  • Sandra: "It's a school event and alcohol is not one of them. Thank you, Gerd, for your efforts, but we're not celebrating in a pub."
  • Gisela: "Wow, philistinism at its best. We took care of it last time!"
  • Franziska: "Hopefully."
  • This is followed by a more or less objective dialogue between Gisela, Gerd and Franziska, which is finally interrupted by Marianne.
  • Marianne: "Please take your personal problems somewhere else. How about the following idea: The Christmas party will take place in the classroom, the children will perform their play and then there will be cake and tea. We also make Christmas decorations. Okay?"
  • Almost all the parents in the group agree with Marianne – of course, they have been following the argument diligently.
  • Sandra: "Okay, let's do this. I am writing our proposal to the teacher, thanks to those who have contributed objectively."
  • Gisela: "What's that supposed to mean??"
  • Gerd: "Of course, typical two-class society!!"
  • Gisela has left the group
  • Gerd has left the group
  • Jens: "We're not coming, I've written to Gerd, I'm celebrating with them."
  • Jens has left the group
  • Sandra: "Phew... sometimes I wonder who the children are here and who are the parents."
  • Franziska: "Honestly, if you want to drink, you can do it, but not at a school event."

The quirky chat is shared by many users and is the subject of lively discussion. "But that sounds like a nice basis for a Tatort script," writes one user, and another feels sorry for the author of the original post: "Very funny for outsiders, but you have to get along with the characters for at least another 2.5 years."

Another difficult topic for parents: chewed-off fingernails in children. Why the children do this, we reveal here. WhatsApp, meanwhile, is asking Android users to pay. An important function of the messenger service will soon no longer be available free of charge indefinitely. (cgsc)
