Writer Seann Walsh was going through some old papers when he came across a letter his dad faxed (yes, faxed) to his school after he got in trouble one day for violating the dress code. It has people screaming:
Sean tells me you have confiscated his sweater. He tells me that in class he conforms to the school uniform. He was absent from school on Monday because he had a cold, so travelling on Wednesday without his sweater was not too clever.
He told me that the jacket he wears normally is acceptable, but it was stained, therefore he could not wear it. His mother was in Cyprus last week on a break and I, unfortunately, was not able to use the washing machine. Sean was too embarrassed at having a father who cannot use a washing machine to say this.
Anyway my point is: Isn't this just a little bit petty? life's hard enough.
