Your Excuse Is A Bust

| Learning | December 29, 2015

(I work at a kindergarten and when a student misses too many classes, we usually call home to make sure everything is ok. This kid has missed class all week, so I call.)

Me: “Hello, this is [My Name] from [Kindergarten]. I wanted to know why [Little Girl] has missed so many classes.”

Mother: “Oh, well… she is very sick. I had to take her to the hospital and all.”

Me: *very worried* “How so? Is it that serious?”

Mother: “Oh, yes, they say she has to stay at least two weeks there. So she won’t be going to school anytime soon.”

(I hang up and worry a lot for the next two weeks, until I hear from the local bus driver that she got on the bus that morning and to wait for her outside on the school entrance… which is full of parents waiting to leave their children.)

Bus Driver: *stepping out of the bus with the little girl* “So [Little Girl], is it true you were at the hospital?”

Little Girl: *screams* “MY MOMMY GOT NEW BOOOOOBIES!”

(At the next parent-teacher meeting everyone was staring at that woman’s chest.)
