About To Adopt An Apologetic Attitude

| ME, USA | Learning | July 20, 2013

(I overhear a discussion at the next table during a parent-teacher conference.)

Father: “Hi Mr. [name], we’re Mr./Mrs. [name], parents of [name].”

Teacher: “You’re [name]’s parents?”

Mother: “Yes. I understand you teach our daughter science.”

Teacher: “You’re not [name]’s parents.”

Father: “What do you mean?”

Teacher: “Look. I’m a science teacher, and I also specialize in genetics. You look nothing like your daughter, not one of you.”

Mother: “She’s adopted.”

Teacher: “Oh! Oh! I’m so sorry!”
