They’re Turning Out Well

Not to brag or anything (which is a clear sign to anybody knowing His Imperial Majesty that he’s about to do just that), but our Imperial Heirs just got their report cards and both of them tested above the “Advanced” category.

Which, of course, led to His Imperial Majesty reacting as any responsible, loving father would react: Calling the two rug rats on the carpet after telling them to drop their shit and report to me ASAP. Which they did. Because they’re good little soldiers.

Followed by me having them at attention while I furrowed my brow while looking at their report cards, looking from one to the other and then finally saying: “Sons, I don’t know of a polite way of putting this, but it has to be said. I’ve looked at your report cards and, well…”

You could hear a pin dropping at this point and much fidgeting was going on.

“Way to GO, kids. OO-rah!”

Mheh. I’m an asshole, I know it.

Seriously, though, I had been worried about them. They have good genes on both sides and they’d been stuck on idle for a while because they didn’t really need to make an effort, and I was waiting to see if they’d get over it. Obviously they did.

Yes, I’m a proud daddy today and I let them know. I also let them know that they’d damn well better keep it up.

See, life ain’t all shit in OgabeTopia.

Thatisall.

I remember my nieces first report card. I was expecting the usual A’s, B’s C’s sort of thing. What I saw was politically correct don’t hut the little darlings “fweeings” sort of crap. I asked my brother about it and he said that’s what the send out these days. Since I didn’t want to detonate in front of my niece,… Read more »

And they also receive another “Way to GO, kids. OO-rah!” from Uncle Rurik. :em01:

My first born will graduate from West Point in 29 days, if he completes his honors thesis. When he was accepted there a friend told me that he was not surprised…”You always made him shake my hand firmly and look me in the eye”. I suspect that your children say things like “please”, thank you, yes (not yeah), sir, and… Read more »

Schools suck: every last one of them. Nobody learns what leads to success in life in school. Those things are Not taught there. Schools are conformatoriums. Want to graduate? Satisfy those in authority who run them. Next to basic skills, the so called “knowledge” one gets from this lot is next to useless with the exception of hard sciences. I… Read more »

I trust that you are adding writing to that list of basic skills. If I were hiring these days, there are quite a few who would be looking elsewhere because their writing is… Read more »

My now 15 year old was stuck on “Idle” for a bit too, Sire, but he learned his lesson by being put in a class the following year which he abhorred. Since then, all homework, study, various assignments are done, when they’re supposed to be done. 😉

Oh, and btw, I’m teaching him cursive writing this summer. Obviously, it’s (penmanship) not important in school anymore.
