A friend showed me this very entertaining article:
Is mommy an exotic dancer? The importance of clear communications
File this under miscommunication.
On his blog, Baltimore weatherman Justin Berk posted this provocative class drawing from a child depicting her mother’s profession.
Berk also posted the mother’s letter of explanation to her daughter’s teacher.
The letter states:
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.
Sincerely, Mrs. ...(Mother)
Just goes to show the importance of clear communication.
