Maya’s report card comment section:

“Maya’s positive attitude, conscientious completion of her assigned work and commitment to doing her best has provided her with many successes this year. Progress and improvement have been evident this trimester. We are working hard in the area of writing; it’s encouraging to see her understanding grow. Thank you for sending such a delightful person to our class.”

I did earn praise for things like my reading and writing and spelling, but that wasn’t usually on the report card. My parents heard good stuff at conferences. They knew I talked too much. I did it at home, too!

“Works well himself but holds others back due to his incessant chatting”

Actually most of my report cards were similar to the goody-goody ones you just quoted. Hooray for the hard-workers!

omg – you copied MY report card.

Well, the part about you, anyway. I was *always* in trouble for talking, and NOTHING has changed since.

My workmates tell me to shut up ALL the time, cos I even talk to myself when no one else is listening. The only time they get peace is when i put my iPod on, and they they have to suffer with me quietly (very quietly) singing to myself and bopping away.

hehhe. Guess I never changed, and never will.
