While adults should know the proper way to talk to someone when they’re upset, the same can’t be said for children, and one parent learned that the hard way.
A woman recently shared a note on social media that her co-worker’s son wrote to his teacher after he was disciplined for disrupting a lesson. The six-year-old was upset that his teacher took away his reward points and got very honest about what he thought of her, which caused the mom to be called into a parent-teacher conference.
“Dear Ms. Jones I am angry of you because you took 25 of my humming bird Bucks all because I was talking to Conner,” he wrote (misspellings are his). “that’s no big deal im only 6 I cant be qyet all the time and that makes you a theif and crook.” He added, “you are going to Hell real Hell the burning 1 because you a theif,” noting, “I worked hard for those bucks and my Only prayer in chaple today was that god gets you to hell fast super fast and your new hair cut is Bad real bad, Isaiah.”
Personally, I did laugh a little at this. I mean, hey the kid's only six, so this is a teaching moment. HOWEVER, I can tell you that if I EVER wrote a note like this to a teacher (or even used the word Hell at that age), my parents would not have been laughing about it with friends and the folks on the internet. Nooo... They would have been taking turns making my behind redder than a fire truck. Meanwhile, the teacher may not have been happy with the note either, but folks on the Internet certainly found it amusing:
- “Mrs. Jones, give him his hummingbird bucks back, b***h,” one person wrote. “He is 6 and cannot be qyet all the time. F** wrong with you.”
- Another added, “He is a man of integrity and understands the value of hard work. Ms. Jones just punched her ticket to the burning hell.”
- And another noted, “this is hilarious. I love this child.”
- Finally another person couldn’t see the problem with the note. “He didn’t resort to violence, just told the lady karma was going to get her,” they shared. “Expressed himself quite eloquently too. Give that baby back his bucks.”
