We can all remember the days. Being forced to get out on the hockey field in the freezing cold U.K. winter. So we can empathise with the teenagers of today who'd rather stay nice and warm indoors, right?

Apparently not. One schoolgirl asked her mum for a note to excuse her from PE and she got more than she bargained for. Now the genius letter has gone viral after the mother (known only as Sam) posted it on Facebook.

This was her response to her daughter's request: 

"Olivia has requested that I write her a note for PE. Here it is… Olivia is perfectly fit and well to take part in her PE lesson today. The only thing she's suffering with is a severe case of Bone-idle-itus! Olivia's complaint is, it's too cold to participate. Might I suggest a few extra laps to warm her up?? Please return to Olivia after reading."

The picture of the note posted on Facebook, which has been shared several thousand times, was accompanied by the comment: 'Well here you go Olivia here's your note for PE, it will be sealed & in an envelope ready for her to hand to the head in the morning."

We don't think Olivia will be trying to get off PE again any time soon.
