Snow Day Humor

Just a reminder that you should check you kids homework before they turn it in.
Look at the picture and then read the mother's explanation to her daughter's teacher. (names left out for privacy)

Dear (Teacher),

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an 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 every single shovel we had, and then 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. ...(Mother)

Cute story.

I left you an award for being exceptionally kind over at my place. Come pick it up quickly before I come to my senses!

Sam said...

Yo...the mom...who are you trying to kid...Exceptionally sweet husband has been called about every adjective except kind!!! You better come to your senses before you get into trouble!!! are you feeling?

the Mom said...

Green. That's how I'm feeling. I hope this ends soon. I am tired of...paying homage to the great white porcelain god. And you?

He gets an award for exceptional kindness for two reasons:
1. He took the Computer Guy's resume last year and offered to help in the job search.
2. I think it's funny.

Boy, am I ever naive. I thought it was a picture one of your sweeties drew of Sam paying them to shovel the driveway. I was way off. Laughing my head off now!
