The best thing about kids can be how much they are like adults: they love to try and pull a fast one on ya. Kids are duplicitous and conniving, but they don't yet have the motor skills to pull their schemes off, so it's cute.
Twitter user @PorshaaEscobar went viral for sharing a photo of a field trip permission slip. Something about it isn't quite right:
Oh, he can go? That's nice.
The image had everyone rotfl, but it also had them walking down memory lane. If you've had a kid, you know they've tried something like this themselves:
Lol I had a kid write their parents name in pencil before! I cracked up for like 29 minutes before I told them they couldn’t go! 😂🤣😂🤣— June Clora Mitchell (@SimplyJ_4) May 5, 2018
One time in middle school my DAD wrote on a NAPKIN “Gord can go to DQ” when I wanted to leave school property for lunch 😂😂— Gordo (@gordonnariss) May 6, 2018
But people are really coming to this kid's defense:
I guess the fun of reading these forgeries make the LIES worth it:
Look out when the kids get to the electronics:
Their material choices will help you sus 'em out:
The lesson is that kids everywhere are crooks and forgers:
Trust no one, especially "Mom."
Though parents can't always be trusted to fill out forms either:
Apparently, no one deserves to go on the field trip.
Except that first kid. He said it twice.
I actually cracked up. He said it twice for good measure. I read this like “He can go. I SAID HE CAN GO!”— B 🇨🇺🇸🇻 (@esta_barbara) May 6, 2018
