Yea it makes school a bit more interesting & challenging when you dumb yourself down to the level of the lesson.


$0 They better be thankful that I even showed up to watch them walk.

Got some real rebels here.....I'm too cool for my graduation. For most kids this is the biggest accomplishment of their lives at this point. Sure looking back on it now you can say it doesn't mean anything, its stupid, blah blah blah. I really hope you don't treat your own kids this way because you not being excited for them at this major milestone in their lives will have dire consequences.

Uhm, so how are you to sign legal documents if basic principals of cursive is not taught?

Itís really sad, my kids must sign papers at every race and print their name because cursive is not taught. Guess Iíll add another task to teach...

I'm not too cool for a high school graduation. It's just not an accomplishment. I went anyway, for my parents, because they wanted to see me walk. I didn't want to walk for my college graduation because I find the ceremony to be silly and I got all the sense of accomplishment I needed without shaking the dean's hand on stage. Not being excited for your kid's graduation is probably NOT something that will have dire consequences unless your kid is very excited about their own graduation.

I've rec'd graduation announcements for cousins I barely know and friends kids that I have never even met. Not sure what the wife sent, but it sure as heck wasn't a Benjamin.


My parents threw me a party, but it was pretty low key. I do remember losing like $250 of what had been given to me on the ping pong table. Good times!

thy sign their legal documents the same way they sign their race documents all a signature is, is a stylized depiction stating you understand and consent to the document being signed.

Fun fact every school my kids have attended have taught how to sign their name. That's a pretty common thing to be taught. They don't teach cursive but a signature isn't exactly a big lesson..

Fun fact: we have a responder that works for us and he signs all of his stuff (timesheets, reports, etc) with a little cartoon whale (play on his name). even signed his passport with the whale.

Also, I had my first crash between graduation and project grad.
