What NOT to do when you get your report card
Before junior year began, I watched YouTube videos on how junior year may be…. with tips and advice and other stuff of the sorts. Basically they said “this year is hard” and “don’t make it any harder than it needs to be”. But the friend I will be talking about today did not watch those videos. Let’s call him Derek
It’s the end of quarter one and Derek has received his report card …he looks at the math grade
Derek- “is that an EEeEee!!!”
Derek- “Oh damn, well this isn’t good, I need a tutor”
Me- (Good thinking, are you gonna tell your mom?)
Two quarters go by…students are currently in quarter three…Derek did not have a tutor for quarter one nor two
*Derek calls me*
On the phone:
Derek-The school is exposing me, they wrote that I should get a tutor ON THE REPORT CARD!
Me-It’s not like you showed your mom the report card
Derek- No, but she is asking for it NOW
Me-Why didn’t you give it to her before?
Derek-Because she didn’t ask
Me- you are digging the hole even deeper
Derek- I know, but I asked her for a tutor
“Me” turns to face the imaginary camera to break the forth wall
Me- you cant just expect parents to perform duties if you ask them ONCE!! It could take weeeekkss of nagging for results to show up AND sometimes they don’t even hear you not because they intentionally ignore you, but because they may have concluded that most of the things that come out of a teenagers mouth are just nonsense…(TRUTH)
(This is the point in the story that I can really no longer help this poor fellow out… two quarters have gone by without a report card at the hands of the mother. How is this possible? you may ask. Well by the words of Derek it is simply as easy as NOT GIVING YOUR PARENTS THE REPORT CARD BECAUSE THEY DO NOT ASK.)
Idk how it is in other households but in mine my father knows when those report cards are coming out down to the last minute. If I went a whole day without telling him, best believe something is going down the next day. Starting with eating my eyes.
As I write Derek is currently alive and has his eyes attached. However, he is worried about his privileges being taken away.
He is currently shopping for Timbs so he is not totally complaining about the bed he made as he is lying in it.
