An Innocent Mistake May 17, 2014

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

First Grade Drawing – PRICELESS!

A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for her homework assignment.


The teacher graded it and the child took it home.

The young girl returned to school the next day with the following note:

Dear Ms. Davis,

I want to be perfectly clear on my child’s homework illustration.

It is NOT me pole dancing on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male customers with money.

I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm.

This drawing is of meย selling a shovel.


Mrs. Harrington

Aah . . . that’s better!

Haha! I love that story.

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

I wonder how often children blow the whistle on their parents? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

2. Carl D'Agostino - May 17, 2014

Well, mommy still is not wearing any clothes.

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

And she’s surrounded by naked men!

3. colonialist - May 17, 2014

That’s HER story! ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

She needs to get another illustrator for her memoirs.

colonialist - May 17, 2014

Not so sure. This one would really enable her to sell!

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

That’s a great idea ~ this could be the cover!

4. nancytex2013 - May 17, 2014

That is perfectly awesome!! ๐Ÿ˜€

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

Pole dancing is great exercise. So is shoveling snow. I bet that’s how mom stays stick thin!

nancytex2013 - May 17, 2014

Combining the two activities = one helluva workout!

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

Yes! What a way to stay lithe and limber!

5. Don - May 17, 2014

One helluva shovel. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

It’s almost the size of a snow plow!

6. Jill Weatherholt - May 17, 2014

A friend of mine sent that to me some time ago, it’s still hilarious the second time around, Nancy! Thanks for the smiles!

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

Some things circle cyberspace in perpetual motion . . . like the Energizer Bunny, they never seem to run out of steam.

7. I am J - May 17, 2014

“Priceless” says it all. What a sweet story.

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

Glad you enjoyed, J!

8. Anne Lene - May 17, 2014

How funny ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

I can see “mom” being a bit mortified at her daughter’s creative endeavor.

9. 2e0mca - May 17, 2014

LoL – such an easy mis-interpretation to make ๐Ÿ˜‰ I dread to think what sort of drawing would have ensued had my son tried to depict me hauling in a cable!

nrhatch - May 18, 2014

Hahaha! That image is priceless, Martin! Too funny!

10. Behind the Story - May 17, 2014

I wonder who originally posted this: the teacher, the mom, a friend who couldn’t stop laughing …

nrhatch - May 17, 2014

Good question. I can see ripples of laughter all through cyberspace.

11. ericjbaker - May 18, 2014

Not that there’s anything wrong with it…

nrhatch - May 18, 2014

Echoes of Jerry Seinfeld and George Kostanza:

“We’re NOT Gay! . . . Not that there’s anything wrong with it.” ๐Ÿ˜Ž

ericjbaker - May 18, 2014

Exactly. If she were a pole dancer, it wouldn’t make her a bad person.


nrhatch - May 18, 2014

When we lived in Winston-Salem, we went to a classy strip joint for happy hour a few times ~> amazing what talented exotic dancers can do with a simple pole.

12. diannegray - May 18, 2014

Haaaa – I LOVE it! ๐Ÿ˜€

nrhatch - May 18, 2014

I’m guessing “mom” didn’t frame it for the living room.

13. Pix Under the Oaks - May 19, 2014

This is funny!!!

nrhatch - May 19, 2014

Yay! Glad you enjoyed. Have a Happy Monday. I’m taking BFF on a Mystery Ride for lunch.

14. Three Well Beings - May 20, 2014

Honestly, this is just the funniest thing! You just know that teacher had worried about how to respond with a picture like that. LOL!

nrhatch - May 20, 2014

Sometimes the safest reaction is no reaction. Deadpan. Or, as Sgt. Schultz (Hogan’s Heroes) used to say, “I see nothing.”

15. Grannymar - May 20, 2014

I’m rippling away over here. Back tomorrow to play catch up.

nrhatch - May 21, 2014

Excellent! With all your running about lately, you need to take it easy, not wear yourself out playing catch up.

16. Booksphotographsandartwork - May 21, 2014

OH my gosh!!!! That is too funny! and it would be so embarrassing.

nrhatch - May 21, 2014

I can see more than a few mom’s getting miffed or mortified at the “mix up” ~> wanting to straighten things out by return note.

17. sufilight - May 22, 2014

LOL!!! The mom’s reaction is funny. ๐Ÿ˜€

nrhatch - May 22, 2014

We tend to tend to our reputations ~ even if they are figments of the imagination. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
