The Truthful Answering Machine

This is an Australian school answering machine message.
It is very clever. I think you’ll think so too.
Have a great day!

Apparently it came about because the school had implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsbile for their children’s absenses and missing homework.

From the YouTube comments, this audio has been going around for a while, but perhaps as school has started again, it bears repeating. For me it was the first time hearing it.


One response to this post.

  1. I love it! A few of my roommates have been teachers and many of the problems that they had could be solved by a good mix of parent involvement and personal responsibility.
