Tonight is PTA.
I have no patience.
I don’t have enough euphemisms.
Why can’t I just tell it like it is.
“Mrs. _______ your daughter is an obnoxious brat, who makes wholly inappropriate comments in class.”
“Mr. ________ your daughter is stupid and isn’t smart enough to keep it to herself.”
“Mrs._________ your daughter talks too much and says very little.”
“Mrs. __________ I love your daughter, she’s sharp, well read, challenging, inquisitive and a hard worker. Can I take her home?”
“Mrs. ___________ your daughter sleeps through my class, but aces my tests, I get the type, but it’s a little annoying.”
“Mrs. __________ I really like your daughter, she has a lot to say to me…and everyone else around her.”
“Mr. ____________ your daughter is passing the course, but failing my class. She needs to stop eating, and making weird groaning noises when she finishes.”
Actually it’s only about three students that I have “bad” reports…most are relatively neutral; good, nice kids that I like, but nothing particular to say about them…boring. And then the handful that I’d love to tell their parents how great their kid is, but I’d sound obsessive….
What are your favorite euphemisms?
What did your teachers say about you?
