These are actual comments made on students' report cards by teachers in the New York City public school system. All teachers were reprimanded, supposedly.
1. Since my last report, your child has reached rock bottom and has started to dig.
2. I would not allow this student to breed.
3. Your child has delusions of adequacy.
4. Your son is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.
5. Your son sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.
6. The student has a 'full six-pack' but lacks the plastic thing to hold it all together.
7. This child has been working with glue too much.
8. When your daughter's IQ reaches 50, she should sell.
9. The gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming..
10. If this student were any more stupid, he'd have to be watered twice a week.
11. It's impossible to believe the sperm that created this child beat out 1,000,000 others.
12. The wheel is turning but the hamster is definitely dead.

"You should seriously consider going to a vocational school instead of college"...or words to that effect.

I have a Ph.D in economics and have been doing economic research for 36 years!

But it's true, I wasn't the brightest light in my primary school, but that changed when i did go to college and graduated *** laude.

I remember being bored by school work and preferred to play ice hockey and lacrosse to studying.

Oh my. Our report cards are computer generated and the teacher can only pick from a set of multiple choice reasons provided. And of course all of those reasons are PC approved

I do like #3 though and I see it/hear it a lot in middle and high school.

My husband received an email of this almost identical list except it was supposedly comments on OERs (Officer Evaluation Report). Still, it's funny, and you just know some teacher wishes with their whole soul to be able to write some of those things down for a couple of their students.

My teachers consistently commented throughout my school years like this:

Your Son is definitely one of the smartest and brightest kids in the class, BUT he can't stop talking and making jokes...he lacks focus at times and he distracts other students and gets them to focus on him!!!

Yikes.

Source? Of course, if it's on the internet, it must be true.

One of my buddies had this written on his post deployment OER: There is no national emergency dire enough to need the services of this Officer.

He was out of the Army a few months after that, was told if he doesn't voluntarily separate (his active duty service obligation had been fulfilled), that the LTC would see to it that he was separated involuntarily.

Love it! Hilarious. Been there, experienced it (as a public school student - 50 yrs ago) and my, gosh, how true! Some are exactly the same thoughts I had...especially the one about the sperm.
