Catch Me if You Can

September 08, 2004

HAHAHA! How'd you like to have this meeting about your son?

(scene from the movie "Catch Me If You Can")

PrincipleDude: "Mr. & Mrs. Abingale, this is -not- a question of your
son's attendence. I regret to inform you that for the past week Frank has been teaching Mrs. Glasser's French class."

Mom: "He what?"

P.dude: "Your son has been pretending to be a substitute teacher, lecturing the students, giving out homework. Mrs. Glasser has been ill and there was some confusing with the real sub. Your son held a teacher / parent conference yesterday and was planning a class field trip to a French bread factory in Trenton. Do you see the problem we have?"

"Oh, honey, I'm so proud!" would be my first reaction, but that's why people like me* don't have children.

* I haven't quite come up with a precise definition for "people like me" but as soon as I think of one... I can tell you one thing. We don't like washing dishes.

Personally, I think I'd say the same thing. Think about it- your kid was actually TEACHING the class. Time to cash in on that knowledge!
