This week was parent / teacher conferences at school (big sigh of relief now that it's over)! So in honor of parent/teacher conference week, here is a funny joke I came across (I'm sure we can all think of some parents) :
When Mrs. Carling arrived for her daughter's parent-teacher conference, the teacher appeared to be a little flustered, especially when she started telling Mrs. Carling that her little girl didn't always pay attention in class and, at times, was a little flighty.
"For example, sometimes she'll do the wrong page in her workbook," explained the teacher, "and I've even found her sitting at the wrong desk."
"I don't understand any of that," replied Mrs. Carling defensively. "Where could she have gotten that?"
The teacher went on to assure Mrs. Carling that her daughter was still doing fine in school and was a sweet and likeable little girl. After pausing for a moment, she added, "By the way, Mrs. Carling, our appointment was for tomorrow."
