Something worth telling...
When I came home from work yesterday I was informed by my youngest that it was report card day. This has not been one of my favorite days lately, but yesterday it proved to be a little better.
It wasn't her best report card by a long shot, but it wasn't completely devastating either. We were sitting there, the two of us, going over it, when I asked her about a comment on the right side of the report card in line with one of her classes that said, "Does not work to her potential".
My daughter proceeded to tell me how her teacher wasn't fair in his grading. How she had taken a quiz and not missed any questions, but only received a 99 for a grade. She told me how this teacher just didn't want to give her a 100.
Then she looked me in the eye and said to me, "He's not GRADING to his potential!"
I lost it! I was laughing so hard. I finally got it under control and told her that was one of the best I'd ever heard and how I wished I had thought of it back in the day. Thinking on it a little longer though, a comment like that just would have gotten me an ass whippin'.
My kids are just too damned quick sometimes.
