When most kids miss the bus, they call their parents to get a ride to school. But one genius kid took a different approach, as he decided to stay home and wrote a hilarious letter to his mom justifying the decision.
“As your son, I regret to inform you that I’ve missed my means of transportation,” he wrote. “I know you must be on a roller coaster of emotions right now but rest assured, I’ve decided to stay home. This was a tough decision to make while you were gone for 20 minutes. I’m probably in my bed moping about the fact I can’t go to school so please don’t interrupt me. If you require any further assistance, please see the pros/cons chart on the backside.”
His dedication to avoiding school paid off, as his sister Sarah revealed that their mom did, in fact, let him stay home and enjoy a much-needed day off, Ferris Bueller style.
