But it wasn’t just a case of misplaced underwear that had Gracie turning red. It was the way her child explained the situation to her teachers that really curled Gracie’s toes.
In the video, Gracie films her face as her daughter’s horrifying story unfolds — and as one commenter observed, it’s like “watching [her] go through the five stages of grief.”
Gracie’s daughter explains, “I was gonna walk to class when a teacher, and I saw a teacher, and they said, ‘There’s something on your shoe honey.’”
She continues, “And then I stomped all the way to the principal and said, ‘This is my mom’s underwear. Our house is messy.’ And she said, ‘Just put it in your pocket.’”
“And then I got to class, and I said, ‘This was on my shoe this morning,’ and I showed them the underwear, and she said to put it in my backpack,” she concludes.
Gracie summed up her feelings in the caption, “Currently looking for a new school for my 6-year-old. #whyshedomelikethat #sendhelp”
