Mother Sends Daughter To School With Note Regarding Her Tardiness

When one California mom had enough of her daughter's tardiness and feet dragging in the mornings before school, she used her imagination to come up with the perfect response when her daughter asked for a tardy note to give to school administrators.

Nicole Poppic decided to share the clever note she wrote in a Facebook post. She captioned 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."

In the interest of fairness, I’ll give you 10 to 1 odds that the note was not what her daughter was expecting from her mom.

"Cara is tardy this morning as a result of a condition known as teenage-ism," Poppic penned in the tardy note. "She suffered from an inability to remove herself from her bed, and also felt the need to talk back to her birth-giver."

The stand-up comic mom continued her humorous fun with her daughter, ending the note by saying: “She seems to be recovering her senses after seeing her cell phone fly out the car window. Please call me if there is another flare up.”

Social media users quickly related with one commenting "As a teacher and a mom, well played, game-set match to you!"

Another delighted, writing "I love this, I need to keep this in mind for when my little one gets older. Taking notes!"

Others, however, did not find the note amusing. Some called it condescending and harsh that she would throw her daughter's phone out the window.

Regardless, Poppic's sarcastic but hilarious note seems to be resonating with most parents all across the globe. In fact, her Facebook post was quickly shared more than 36,000 times.
