Today, I had a note to skip P.E. that my grandpa had written because my mom was busy. His handwriting is terrible, so they didn't believe that he'd written it. I'd twisted my ankle and I got to run another mile for "lying". FML

Apparently only kids in school are allowed to have poor handwriting these days...shoulda said your grandpa was a doctor, that'd clear it right up

Oww. If those staff suspected anything, couldn't they have checked the ankle? Our staff could have.

They thought you were twisting their arm, so they made you run with a twisted ankle.

Improvised version: They thought you were pulling their leg, so they made you run a mile in their shoes with a twisted ankle.

For the record they can't make OP or anyone for that matter do something you don't want to do. Unless they're searching for drugs, weapons ect. They cant make you run or even participate in physical activity. They should also have called OPs home if they were that worried OP was lying.

Your joke very funny. Come, I clap for you.

Show it anyway

Unless you're actually hurt. Then it's not so easy.

This is when you Politely ask to go to the principals office and have them call your mom

In the US a lot of athletic coaches/ teachers abuse their "authority". If they feel like being rude, they'll tell you they get to determine if you're injured or not & you can get in trouble for walking off even if it's to go see an athletic trainer.

there's no fucking way OP can run a fucking mile with a fucking twisted ankle,. It's just not fucking possible., even if he/she said they limp a fucking mile, totally fucking false., they'd either give the fuck up, quit & start fucking crying, or fucking piss/shit themselves while attempting to fucking do a mile run on twisted fucking ankle

Couldn't you be more persistent and insist that they call him and clear it up? I wouldn't have sat there and be called a liar for nothing.

You should've let the P.E. teacher call your mother. That would be more than enough evidence.

That's what I don't understand. Why would OP listen? Just refuse.

sue the school if you further damaged your ankle.

Yes, suing the school makes much more sense than, say, using your brain and explaining things to the teacher. Why the FUCK is everyone so quick to scream "SUE!!" instead of talking things through?

Because you might get a nice fat settlement out of it? :D

Because it's one of two typical American retirement plans. Fat lawsuit and hitting the lottery. The lawsuit is much more likely. AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!

I'm not American.

Say no. They can't make you do it. Sack up.

Why would you do it? Did they put a gun on your head? You should have refused and if they took disciplinary actions against you, your mom and grandpa would have cleared things up.

Please refer to the Milgram experiment and it's successors. People don't like to buck authority when they're put on the spot.
