    School answering machine message

    Thanks to Grumbledook for mailing this to me!

    This is the message that the Maroochydore High School, Queensland,
    Australia staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone
    answering machine. This is the actual answering machine message for the
    school.

    This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and
    parents to be responsible for their children's absences and missing
    homework. The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want
    their children's failing grades changed to passing grades - even though
    those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not
    complete enough school work to pass their classes.
    It's zipped as it is an MP3. Enjoy

    Is it just me, or is the zip file corrupt?

    The best message ever - and absolutely correct! My wife is and Education Welfare Officer and she has to deal with this every day, all the excuses are spot on - brilliant!

    Couldn't believe when it came through ... thought I had to pass it on even if it is a spoof.

    Now I've just got to see whether I can get it around to the Education Welfare lot.

    It's been around for a while now but still makes me laugh. Shame it wasn't actually done really though.
