Got An ‘A’ In Record Keeping

| Related | January 27, 2015

(My younger brother and I are playing video games when our dad barges in.)

Dad: “I’m in a bad mood! Go get your report cards now!”

(My brother brings his first. While Dad gives him a nasty lecture about his poor his grades are, I wait terrified, knowing I’m next. Finally, my brother gets fed up.)

Brother: “You know what?!”

(He goes and get something else, then slams it on our refrigerator with a magnet for all to see. It’s my dad’s graded test from one of his college classes, with a big D on it.)

Me: “Where’d you get that?”

Brother: “I found it in our parents’ nightstand. Dad, you got poor grades in school, too!”

(Dad was so shocked that he forgot all about my report card, and slinked away. Mom laughed herself silly. I let my brother play all the games he wanted to when we went back.)
