Have you ever had your parents help you with your homework only to find out it was all wrong?
Well, it happened to me.
The teacher asked me if was I having problems at home.
I replied, "Yes, this "new" math shit is hard for adults too."
Funny Lunch Memories
My dad was the king of saving a nickel by sending me with my own lunch that HE packed.
A country-bred man, my dad would fill my lunch pail with "vittles".
Unfortunately, I forgot to check my lunch pail until lunchtime.
Do you understand how ashamed I was to find a damn Red Mississippi hot sausage wrapped in a piece of white bread and a side of grits?
I loved my father to death..but damn...couldn't I have had a Lunchable?
I remember saying,"Dad, can I have American food next time?"
I love grits now..Ironic.
Funny School Clothes Incident
I went to a Catholic school so uniforms were mandatory.
My mom, the queen of cheap, decided to get in good with the parents of a girl that was graduating.
As a result, I got all of this girl's uniforms once she left St. Joe's.
It didn't matter to my mom that this chick was easily 6 feet 2 inches tall and I was (before my growth spurt), 5 feet tall.
I looked like something out of Little House On The Prairie.
The hems of the skirts were mid-calf while everyone else's hit the knee.
Of course a mysterious stain appeared rendering the skirt useless.
I am horrible, I know.
Funny School Picture
School pics were coming up and I wanted bangs.
Nice flowy ones...
Everyone was wearing them. Why couldn't I?
The answer to that question is "because your mom is going to cut them. "
The result was the Apocalypto style bangs in the picture featured.
There was nothing flowy about that.
I was not amused as you can see.
My mom was playing designer as well and convinced me that Ben Franklin style ascots were cool.
Not so much...
I hope I made you laugh!
