All Scottish Teachers

Crazy Parents

* The following were given as excuses back in the 60s:

"My daughter can't come to school as she has the dire rear."

"My daughter has had a bad knight in bed, and has something wrong in
her tummy."


* The following was handed to a teacher by a child returning after an absence:

"Dear Teacher,

Please can you fill in the sick note for my child

My daughter was not at school on.............

This was because (please ask my daughter and delete as appropriate)

a) she had a sore throat
b) she was sick
c) she had diarrhoea
d) she had toothache
e) she went to the doctors
f) other reason

Yours sincerely,

Mrs X."


* Parent: 'do you teach driving?'

Teacher: 'No, I don't.'

Parent: 'Well what's all this about 'motor skills' then?'
