Now, this is how you get revenge!

This story comes to us from a man whose teacher wife decided to get even with some parents who were stepping out of bounds.

Hang on to your hats for this one!

Wife forced to give extra credit, assigns it to parents.

“My wife teaches a lovely group of kids in an area where parents are incredibly strict. The children are almost all operating within the ‘A’ grade range and their parents overwork them to ensure the A+.

And of course, the parents had to get annoying…

Anyways, the new school year has some parents pestering my wife for extra credit assignments. She’s insisted that it is optional for her to assign extra credit and they’ve raised the issue up through administration to force her hand.

Another teacher (who teaches the same class), gives loads of extra credit and they want their children to be on an even level.

So the teacher decided to teach these parents a valuable lesson!

With the news that she’d have to match the amount of given extra credit opportunities, she has decided to involve the children’s parents.

You gotta love it!

Her extra credit is just many different little assignments that take lots of time from the parents day for an extra couple points on the next exam. While she continues to assign these extra credit assignments, the participation rate has been zero.”

Here’s what people had to say.
