Some call her “mother of the year.” Others are offended at her harsh tactics. Which side are you on?
A California teen running late for school must have been thrilled when her mother agreed to write an excuse note — until she read it.
The note has been shared tens of thousands of times on Facebook, likely by applauding parents everywhere who know just how hard it is to get their children to school every morning.
Nicole Poppic wrote in the caption of the post, “This is what happens when you are tardy as a result of your own poor choices and you ask me for a note to excuse your tardiness,” adding a grinning emoji face wearing sunglasses for good measure.
“Cara is tardy this morning as a result of a condition known as teenage-ism,” Poppic wrote. “She suffered from an inability to remove herself from her bed, and also felt the need to talk back to her birth-giver.”
Take a look at the note and decide for yourself:
This is what happens when you are tardy as a result of your own poor choices and you ask me for a note to excuse your tardiness. ?
Some people were critical of Poppic for her tactic, but she explained that she and her daughter are close, and that her daughter understands the value of adding humor to a situation.
