Boy Wrote Mom a Note After Missing the Bus

This Boy's Hilarious Note About Missing the Bus Will Make You Double Over With Laughter

Sarah Holliday knows that her little brother can get creative when it comes to getting himself out of trouble. But the note he recently penned to his mom after missing the bus is some of his best work yet. In a now-viral tweet, Sarah shared the hilarious note — complete with a pros and cons chart — and holy smokes, it's amazing.

"As your son, I regret to inform you that I've missed my means of transportation," he wrote. "I know you must be on a roller coaster of emotions right now but rest assured, I've decided to stay home. This was a tough decision to make while you were gone for 20 minutes. I'm probably in my bed moping about the fact I can't go to school so please don't interrupt me. If you require any further assistance, please see the pros/cons chart on the backside."

But the boy in question didn't stop there. He also included a useful pro and con list to offset any feelings of uneasiness his mom may have.


"Pros: first day home this quarter, grades with be fine" and "Today was gonna be a bad one, can't get over my hair."

Honestly, that's fair. As for the cons? "Might become a habit (doubtful)" and "You have to call the school and tell them I've got polio." HAHA! We seriously can't make this stuff up!
