If he could think of a better plan, he wouldn't be ashamed of his grades

    So what did you do to hide a bad report card? Ever try a fake kidnapping?

    No child left behind, but sometimes bookbags and report cards left behind.

    That last line slays me.

    I once forged an entire gradecard. And got away with it. All to cover the D I got in religion. Go figure. ;D

    Oh, I got some BAD grades in religion. I damn near flunked one year because I got a poor coloring grade and almost always got awful grades in conduct. Something about asking a lot of questions (many of which admittedly I asked to be a pain in the ass)

    My teachers always thought I'd either end up a great advocate for the church or Satan's right hand man. Turns out, I'm mostly apathetic.

    There are places where report cards are issued in mid-September??

    Holy crap. My kids just went back to school a week ago Tuesday.

    I never went to a school that started after Aug. 20 because school had to be out and done by May 15 at the very latest. If they split up their semesters into three six week periods instead of two nine week periods, then it's entirely plausible that he was bringing home his first report card.

    Who the hell takes a class in religion? Was that in college?

    Hmmmm, that's interesting. But I'm curious, Wenders, why did school have to be finished by May 15?

    We had it from first grade to eighth. I think officially it was an off hour, twice a week. There were always a couple kids that didn't go and did something else (what, I have no idea), but in our tiny very German catholic town no one batted an eye.

    I went to a very rural high school in Kansas and they had to get the farm kids home so they could be ready for wheat harvest and all of the rest of the stuff they do in the summer. Almost no school in the rural parts of Kansas really went past mid-May for that reason.
