Metaphorically accurate

I was teaching a class, and everything was going just fine, but then the department chair brought in a few parents. They were all tall, blonde women and they had some “important” role, like maybe they were presidents of the PTSO or something. So they came in and started taking over my class. Suddenly there was all this expensive new equipment, none of which had anything to do with my class — things like fancy exercise equipment and other stuff that looked like fancy exercise equipment but was actually just a different way to watch TV or get on the internet.

I was really angry with these women and I told them to get the hell out. I used some strong language. But they just laughed at me.
