To make excuses for why your child hasn't done his homework, press 2

At least a few people working in public education still have a sense of humor... 

Not sure if the answering machine message below is fake or real, but I do think it is very smart and, perhaps best of all, this message points out not so subtly how parents AND their kids need to 'wake up and smell the coffee.' Automatically blaming the school for all of their problems is just as ridiculous as this phone message sounds.

You can listen to the answering machine message on my

Momathon Blog post today. It was allegedly voted unanimously by the staff at Maroochydore High School, Queensland, Australia.
