I found this on the ground while taking out the recycling, and being nosy, I read it. It’s a girl’s penance for a minor infraction, but it makes my head (and heart) hurt. “Get smart?” Really? (The guidelines on the other side are basically about sitting quietly and still, with two related to only writing when the teacher tells students to write.)

Dear [redacted], I hope you earn many more pink slips from this charter school. They don’t deserve you. 

Love, qH
