Default School Answering Machine Message

\(This is hilarious - no wonder some people were offended!) This is the
message that the Pacific Palisades High School (California) 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'* absences and missing homework. The school and
teachers are being sued by parents who want their children'* failing grades
changed to passing grades - even though those children were absent 15-30
times during the semester and did not complete enough schoolwork to pass
their classes.

The outgoing message:
"Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school.
In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please
listen to all the options before making a selection:

* To lie about why your child is absent - Press 1
* To make excuses for why your child did not do his work- Press
2
* To complain about what we do - Press 3
* To swear at staff members - Press 4
* To ask why you didn't get information that was already enclosed in your
newsletter and several flyers mailed to you - Press 5
* If you want us to raise your child - Press 6
* If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone - Press 7
* To request another teacher, for the third time this year - Press 8
* To complain about bus transportation - Press 9
* To complain about school lunches - Press 0
* If you realize this is the real world and your child must be accountable
and responsible for his/her own behavior, class work, homework and that
it'* not the teachers' fault for your child'* lack of effort:
Hang up and have a nice day!

If you can read this - thank a teacher!
If you are reading it in English - thank a veteran!
