I failed the first term of a class in secondary school, so I made a fake report card.
I did this every term in the year.
I forgot that they mail home the end-of-the-year report cards, and my mom got it before I could exchange it with my fake.
She was pissed – at the school for their mistake
The teacher also retired that year and had already thrown out his records. So they had to take my mother’s ‘proof’ (the fake ones I made throughout the year)
And they corrected the ‘mistake’.
I never told her the truth.
