Taking Off the Orange Robe

Sarah is asked to draw what she wanted to be when she grew up.

She turns in the following…..

Below is her mother’s letter to the teacher.

Dear Mrs. Jones,

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 Sarah how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had. Then I found one more in the back room, and several people were fighting over who would get it. Sarah’s picture does NOT 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.

Hilarious! My husband works in Home Depots a lot. I should double-check this kind of story with him!

Kids say the most embarassing things to their teachers.

Last year my son wrote a story in school about a gift that Santa left under the Christmas Tree for me. It was from my husband and the the tag on the gift said, "To: Mommy From: Naughty Santa." Of course it was just underwear and a bra, but the teacher thought it was funny. I turned several shades of red!

Home Depot has strippers now?

Mrs. Piccolo is totally lying...we all know she moonlights to make ends meet.

I would not have believed that Mrs. Piccolo was not doing the dirty pole dance except that one leg was not wrapped around the pole. I think one leg must always be wrapped around the pole. Don't ask me how I know this.

Also, she has no boobs. No self-respecting pole dancer would have no boobs whatsoever.

Therefore I believe she is being honest in her letter to Mrs. Jones.

Ah! Yes, I received this email last week some time and promptly fell out of my chair laughing. Or almost.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog ... I agree ... the parents might be the death of little 'ol me. But then again, when I procreate I'll be right up there with them I'm sure!

Oh, The Joys said...

A likely story!

Great stick figures. The kid has a great future! And here I've been shopping at Lowes.
