(This is hilarious - no wonder some people were offended!)

This is the message that the Pacific Palisades High School

( California ) staff voted unanimously to record on their school

telephone answering machine.

This is the actual answering machine message for the school.

This came about because they implemented a policy requiring

students and parents to be responsible for their children's

absences and missing homework.

The school and teachers are being sued by parents who

want their children's failing grades changed to passing

grades - even though those children were absent 15-30

times during the semester and did not complete enough

schoolwork to pass their classes.

The outgoing message:

"Hello! You have reached the automated answering

service of your school.

In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member,

please listen to all the options before making a selection:

* To lie about why your child is absent - Press 1

*To make excuses for why your child did not do his work- Press 2

* To complain about what we do - Press 3

* To swear at staff members - Press 4

* To ask why you didn't get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you - Press 5

* If you want us to raise your child - Press 6

* If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone -Press 7

* To request another teacher, for the third time this year -Press 8

* To complain about bus transportation - Press 9

* To complain about school lunches - Press 0

* If you realize this is the real world and your child must

be accountable and responsible for his/her own behavior, class

work, homework and that it's not the teachers' fault for your

child's lack of effort: Hang up and have a nice day!

*If you want this in Spanish, you must be in the wrong country.
