WW: Why This Child May Not Get Into the School Preferred by His Parents

There's a good reason this child might not get into the school preferred by his parents.

This is a true story of a young mother I know. I won't tell you her name but suffice it to say that she is the mother of my only grandchild.

It seems that these parents were trying really hard to get their son into a little school at a nearby church; this desirable school has a very long waiting list.

The headmistress/director and this "young mother" were communicating by e-mail. The mother was told that the school will not accept anyone who is not potty-trained and was asked when the child would be 2 years old.

The young mother replied that his birthday is March 19th and that she was hoping he'd be potty-trained by then, but, she wrote, she certainly wished there were a camp to send him to for potty-training because she didn't know how in the world to tackle it.
At least that's what she meant to write. She sent the e-mail, then checked back to be sure she had included the birth date.

Oh, yes, she had, but here is what she had actually written instead of what she intended to say:
"I wish there were a camp to send him to for potty-training because I don't know how to tickle tits."

No, but this is a great post on how to edit something before hitting the send button. Especially when it's this important. Perhaps this is just what she needed to do to get her son into this school. Well, if the person she sent it to has a sense of humor.

Have a terrific day. :)

So funny!
The only thing she could do to redeem herself is to add a P.S. that said:
"and I wish there was a camp to send mothers to to learn how not to make typos too!"

The person must have laughed out loud when she got the email!

I feel like "pervert" may be a strong word.

oh, too funny!

Well, if this church is on it's game, this should be all the more reason to accept her son!

BTW, none of my children were potty trained by 2. And one didn't really stop having accidents (both kinds) until nine. (Fortunately, autism explained this.)

I'm certainly glad you have a daughter who will not kill you for passing on this delightful story. Mine would!

That is absolutely hilarious!! She ought to get in just because of that!

OH! NO! haha....I have looked back on past emails or comments that I have left on blogs and seen my typos! And think...why don't I ever think to check what I type BEFORE I hit send!!!

Blessings & Aloha!
Aw!!! Your grandson is truly a handsome fella!!!!
