Check, Check, Checking One, Two, Three...



Dear Mrs. Jones,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, and exotic dancer.

I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out of every single snow shovel we had, and how I found one more in the back room and that several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot.

From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

Sincerely,
*Mrs. Smith

*Names have been changed to protect the innocent...and the mortified.

Updated: To those who may wonder if I have recently taken a job at Home Depot or if Remi is a prodigy now attending 2nd grade - the answer to both, is a resounding "no." This little mishap did not happen to me, I assure you. For if it had been me drawn on that picture I can assure it would not be money the customers would be throwing at me, but rather blankets. Big, woolly blankets.

Totally hilarious! (But hang on, Remi is too young to write like that and you don't work at Home Depot ...???) Confused.

I saw this somewhere else, and got a huge laugh! So funny!

Oh wow, that's hilarious! It's a great picture of what it's supposed to be, but that's certainly not what it looks like when you don't know the story!

These are the kind of things you get to look forward to as your kids get older and are in school. All your business is for the world to hear!

First of all, IF you were pole dancing, I don't think for one minute that people would be throwing blankets at you, and IF they did, it would only be because they were worried that you might get a cold and give it to Remi or Rocco.

I LOVE this. LOVE is not even a strong enough word.

I received this as an email from a friend who taught alongside me for many years--one of the absolute funniest things I have seen in ages. I shared it with my daughter's teacher (who had my son last year). We giggled about it while she was trying to conduct my daughter's conference with us. ;-)
