(I get a phone call from one of my son’s teachers.)

Me: “Hello?”

Teacher: “Mrs. [My Surname], I’m afraid you will not take particular liking to this call, but your son has been caught doing something most unacceptable in the school environment.”

Me: “Oh no. What has he done?”

Teacher: “He’s been listening to music!”

Me: “In his lessons?”

Teacher: “No.”

Me: “I don’t see what the problem is. He’s allowed to listen to music outside of lessons.”

Teacher: “Do you have any idea what he listens to?”

Me: “A bit of everything, from what I can gather going past his bedroom every night.”

Teacher: “A band called Slipknot.”

Me: “Okay. I still don’t see an issue.”

Teacher: “You don’t?! Do you know what’s in their lyrics?”

Me: “Of course I do. We listen to their albums on long drives.”

Teacher: “OH, MY GOD!” *hangs up*

(Slightly shocked and disgruntled, I decided to call the school back. While talking to the receptionist, I could hear the teacher wailing in the background about how our family was “tainting the school.” I was more than upset by the teacher’s attitude, but the receptionist assured me my son would not suffer any consequences from the teacher’s inclination toward his music.)
