“If you see my kids crying outside & picking weeds, just keep on driving. They’re on a field trip”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic closed many schools, and many parents were homeschooling for the first time. “Field trips” were a little different.

This was posted on Facebook by TriKee Tack and on Twitter by Larissa Fruean-Brown on March 28, 2020:

“If you see my kids crying outside and picking weeds, just keep on driving. They’re on a field trip.”

“If you see my kids locked outside today, mind your business. We are having a fire drill” is a similar jocular saying.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

@MikeTaylorShow If you drive by my house and see my kids picking weeds and crying, keep driving. They’re on a field trip.

If you wear your jeans 5 days in a row, they become all baggy and it looks like you’re losing weight.  Follow me for more quarantine life pro tips.
