Mum Sends Brutally Honest Text To School Explaining Why Her Son Is Late
| Last updated
A mum from Australia has shared her brutally honest assessment of why her son was late for class in the form of a hilarious message sent to the young boy's school.
The mother - who is called Suzanne - had obviously reached the end of her tether with her 13-year-old son's laziness and, when asked to provide a reason for his tardiness, decided to tell the school what was really going on.
She wrote: "Arrived late because he's a mouthy almost 14-year-old, who's hormonal, thinks the world owes him a favour, refuses to get out of bed at a decent time for school, thinks the Xbox is life, grunts instead of speaking, spends 20 minutes in the shower just stood there, walks at the speed of a snail and couldn't find his socks that were right in front of his eyes."
Wow. Tell us what you really think, why don't you?
To be fair, anyone who has been around or - heaven forbid - has a son or daughter of that age can probably sympathise somewhat.
They're pretty tough going at the best of times, not least when you're trying to get them to go to school.
LADbible spoke with Suzanne, who sends her son to a school in Western Australia. She told us: "So, my son was late for high school this morning for the third day in a row because, true to that text, he just cannot move himself on a school morning!"
"He's not interested in anything unless it's on the Xbox, he literally spends 20 minutes in the shower on a school morning and doesn't even pop open the shower gel, so literally stands there and gets wet!
"He had a pile of socks on his bed and yet 10 minutes before the bell rings he complains, 'I can't find any socks.'
"[He] walks out of his room, realising he's going to be late. I tell him to have a good day and that I love him and receive a grunt of 'urghhhhhh' in reply instead of actually replying to me, all with a lunge of the head."
She continued: "I then watch him walk down the street at the pace of a snail. By this time I'd had enough of the hormonal mood swing, he had only been up 30 minutes maximum.
"So, when I then received a text from the school student services desk asking for a reason why he was late, instead of my usual 'slept in' I went IN and gave them the full explanation as to why, and to hopefully brighten their morning.
"I have yet to receive a reply."
Yeah, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for one either.
