Scots schoolboy writes hilarious letter to German teacher


A HILARIOUS picture shows the letter a Scots schoolboy wrote to his teacher after being told off in class.

The handwritten note states that the 13-year-old lad from Aberdeen is “not sorry” for speaking to his friend for a “few seconds” during a language class at Oldmachar Academy.

He also writes “I do not like German” and ends the letter with “ I’ll just tell you I had chips for lunch yesterday”.

A snap of the defiant letter was uploaded to social media by the boy’s brother, and was retweeted over a thousand times in 12 hours.

The picture was uploaded with the caption “My brother had to write an apology to Mrs *****. Look what he’s put down.”

The full note reads: “I turned around and talked to ****** for a few seconds. I was not talking constantly. Also, everyone else was talking too and I got this work for speaking to ****** for a second.

“I don’t think it’s fair and I’m not sorry. I already done the work. I do not enjoy German.

“I need to write to that line down there but I have nothing else to say for myself so I’ll just tell you I had chips for lunch yesterday.”

The cheeky chap’s father said: “He does hate German. I had no idea that he had written this letter and this is all news to me.

“I don’t know if he would have had the guts to hand it in.”


Twitter users found the letter hilarious, and it has so far received over 2,000 ‘favourites’.

One user wrote: “At least Mrs ***** knows what he had for lunch. That’s something anyway.”

Another added: “This is sensational.”

Someone else wrote: “That’s brilliant.”

Other examples of hilarious letters written by children include one from a student which read: “Dear Mrs Storz. You are the best music teacher ever because my last music teacher choked a boy.”

One letter from one pupil to another reads: “Dear Brody. Miss P made me write you this note. All I want to say sorry for is not being sorry because I tried to feel sorry but I don’t.”
