Man, fuck teachers and their oversensitivity and overreactions. When I was in school, even 10-15 years ago teachers barely gave a shit about their kids. I can understand the concern, but was it necessary to call CPS immediately? Maybe get some more information before taking such a drastic act, like ASKING the child about it. Stupid fucking teachers, mind your own goddam business. Go ahead and thumb me down people. I'm just sick of how oversensitive and thin-skinned people are today. Can't say a single word in public without someone hearing it and getting offended or reacting negatively towards you.
71 - Amen. CPS is a little to extreme. In Va. Beach CPS don't even care about your kid just the paycheck. They mistreated my brother and didn't know how to handle him. He has down syndrome so you would think it's required to know about it...nope, they just dragged him when he would pout and such. YLS for having a child with a over reacting teacher with no thought process.
141 - I teach and I was told once we suspect abuse, we aren't allowed to talk to the child about it; we had to report it to the admin and social services IMMEDIATELY. The rationale was that talking to the child (especially younger, impressionable children) might cause them to become confused and remember things incorrectly; kind of like leading a witness in court.
158) While I can understand your sentiment, not following the right protocols can end with a child NOT being removed from a dangerous situation because the necessary burden of proof was not met and the appropriate agencies would have no legal bearing to intervene. I'm pretty sure no one wants that, so procedures were put in place to minimize the risk of that happening. Unfortunately, common sense is not legally binding.
I'm sure it was weird for the first few months as the corpse was rotting, but your kid shoud be OK now that he's just down to a skeleton. Skeletons are cooler than teddy bears.
It's funny how children's words can be interpreted in suuuuch the wrong way! Regardless, such an awkward thing to talk your way out of so, FYL
some kids say things on purpose too just because of the things that happen. my dad told his teacher once that his mom was a drunk and that he had to take care of his sisters in order to get out of homework next say his mom opens the door to human services. parents can get in big trouble when kids do that.
Aww, miscommunication is a bitch. But why would your son be talking about his bed at school?
30 - In total, Man has commented 1043 times. You have commented 8 times. Now if you can do the math, clearly Man has been around much longer than you have. Here on FML, you'll meet people such as Noor, Perdix, DocBastard (to names a few, the list goes on) who you treat with respect as they possess higher "FML status" than you. Get past the 100 comment marker BEFORE telling others to "stop commenting". ;)
33: I appreciate the defense, but I wouldn't put myself up there with Noor, DocBastard and Perdix. Not even close. I wouldn't expect anyone to respect me just because I have a certain number of comments. Maybe because of the substance of the comments, but nothing more. He can voice his opinion, even if it's disagreeable. P.S x=194 194+750=943 ;)
MissMae93, while I agree that horseraddish's comment was off topic, I don't completely agree with your notion and insinuation of an FML hierarchy here. I mean while most of us enjoy DocBastard and perdix's posts they are by no means royalty. And you never know how many people have been coming to the site daily and didn't make a user name until recently. I myself have been coming here almost daily since 2008 but I didn't make a user name til a few months back. Maybe horseraddish has been lurking who knows.
I know this is not part of Internet protocol - for a nobody to tell a somebody things like stop posting - but if someone posts a thousand times and then makes a shit post, it doesn't stop that post from being shit. Noor makes shit posts as well. So does everyone. But if someone is a habitual shit poster, they need to stop posting.
You should have replaced the bed, would you want to sleep in the bed of someone who passed away??
The majority of mother gives birth in a hospital, and I doubt that many people have that specific bed in their house. My mother has promised me her bed for when I'm leaving the house. It's a gorgeous thing, nice and comfortable, so I absolutely don't mind sleeping in it. Neither would I if the bed belonged to a dead person. It's not poisened - or so I would hope.
#43 and 51, you are both right that it doesn't say anywhere that the uncle died in the bed, but it's more fun to assume that he did. Look at my comment, #2. I go even one further and make the absurd assumption that no one even moved the uncle's dead body from the bed. Of course, it's not true, but I found the concept hilarious.
