why animals eat their young

This week was the last week in school before the Winter Break. The kids had semester exams and a crazy daily schedule.

The Youngest boy, who had pneumonia over the Thanksgiving Holidays, had no more absences left. (If you miss more than 9 days, the schools system decides whether or not they will give you credit for the semester)

Of course, The Youngest Boy did not understand the magnitude of this even though he had missed exactly 9 days.

Text Messages from school...

Boy: "Can you check me out, we aren't doing anything. My teacher is even letting us text."
Me: "No, you can't miss any more days."
Boy: "But I didn't bring anything to do."
Me: "I can't help it."
Boy: "Everyone is LEAVING."
Me: "If you go home now, you will get to spend the entire year next year in the 10th grade, AGAIN. Stop texting me."

Then comes the message...

"U stupid bitch."

I know what you are thinking...The Youngest Boy doesn't need to think about repeating the grade...he needs to start thinking about how long it's going to take for him to sit down again.

"I didn't send that message I swear, someone else had my cell phone and sent it!"

Of course I didn't respond. The only thing that kept me from driving up to the school and beating his ass in front of all of his classmates was the fact that he never sends text messages using "U".

The next day, I get this from The Youngest Boy, his friend had given it to him to give to me.

I like the Leslie comment.

Wow... the comment caught me so off-guard I had to back up and read again to convince myself this was your kid you were talking about.

The apology letter was a nice touch, lol. Kids irritate the hell out of me. Including my own!

That apology letter is priceless lol! I especially liked the part at the end where he says to send your son to counseling and spells it wrong! Oh, I had tears in my eyes it was so funny.

Hope your exams are going well. :)

Tell that retard how to spell "too."
Two O's! Not one!

Funny story and funnier letter, though your son should kick that guy's (if it's a boy) ass.

Another grammatical pet peeve of mine: ending a sentence with "at".

You should so grade this and give it back to him.

Candice said...

This would be my letter of reply.

Dear filthy mouthed asshole,

Thanks for the letter of apology. The excuse you used for calling me a stupid bitch was a pretty lame attempt for a kid your age. Surely you could have come up with something better than that you little retard.

P.S - Call me a stupid bitch again and you'll find your detached little nuts shoved all the way down your esophagus.

Merry Christmas and have a wonderful winter break!

Funny blog.. I'm slightly twisted myself. ;)

that letter was written by a girl, wasn't it? amazing how many high school kids can't spell. the letter was a hoot.

New follower of your blog (you can make that #38 now) the post! The scan of the letter is brilliance! :-)

Oh I'd have to hold back a LOT not to respond to that note. Never mind...I think I'd write to the team of teachers this child has and ask them to kick it up a notch in the areas of spelling and grammar.

Apology shmapology--washing this child's mouth out with soap might just get (her??) to concentrate on being a better writer ;).

Alice said...

WOW - I probably would have raced to the school.

Nice apology letter though. I've gotten some doozies when I make the kids write me essays for invading people privacy like looking in purses.

Happy Holidays!

You are a better woman than I am...I would now be in jail for pummeling a child into tapenade( and yes, I looked up the spelling!) The parents of the child offering that lame apology would be mortified (hopefully).
