Media Mondays (on a Tuesday): FAIL
see more Epic Fails
(It seems like you have to click on the photo in order to read what the bottom of the note says.)
I have some pretty strong spiritual beliefs. Typically of the non-fundamental kind, even if I do agree with some of the details presented in this parent's rather angry letter.
However, if I were the teacher of the student who's parent sent this letter in to me, I would:
- first, be rather pissed off.
- second, sorry for the kid.
- third, laugh it off and throw the note in the trash.
I'm also tempted to return a note to the parent saying, "Thank you for wasting my time by making me read your long note about your beliefs, which really have nothing to do with the logistics of the field trip. Which is what I mainly care about right now."
Seriously. If parents have the time and energy to write long, irrelevant notes to teachers, then they have enough time and energy to come to school and volunteer in the classroom.
