Life with 'song and Elayna - school pictures edition

School pictures are taken.
I discover that Elayna has not given in the check & photo order.
I hound Elayna for a week to get her to turn it in.
Time passes. No photos.
I call the school to inquire; I am transferred to a voicemail. I ask where the check is and if pictures will ever appear.
I get a voicemail back saying "I got your message, and no, it's not too late to buy the yearbook!"
I got ARGH and stop dealing with it for a bit.
I see that picture retakes are approaching. I call again.
Administrator says that Elayna never turned in the money - "I would never take it." Elayna says she turned it in. I tell the administrator that my daughter's not a liar, and that she needs to try to find that check.
I write another check and send it in with the new order form on picture retake day.
Administrator finds the old check in her desk. I refrain from rubbing it in. Elayna gets her picture taken, and brings home the second check.
Elayna brings home the pictures.
I discover that they've misspelled her name on the pictures.
I call and have to speak with two idiots; they will reprint and mail.

Me, getting off the phone: "AAAAGH. Humans."
Elayna: "Foolish humans!"

Yep. She's my kid.
