Dear Teacher

Dear Teacher,

I regret to inform you that the test you requested be signed and returned was accidentally placed in the trash. When I went to retrieve it, I found it covered with coffee grounds, paper towels that were used to clean poop out of a puppy cage and a note which reads, “Are those mouse droppings inside this cabinet, because I WILL DIE!!”


I am assuming you would rather it remain in the garbage, but please advise.

Best regards,

    You should have dug it out anyway, and just had whichever child’s test it was explain to the teacher that coffee grounds, puppy poop and possible mouse turds are, in fact, your signature.

    Well, the teacher in me wants to confirm it was not the child that piled coffee grounds, puppy poo and mouse droppings on the test. The Mom in me just laughs along. Been there.

    I feel your pain. But mice are better than roof rats running through the heating vents. ($600 to fix that one.)

    You could always send the photo…
