An unhappy second grader sent their science teacher flowers — along with an unexpected note — to express how much they missed being in school.
On March 29, TV anchor Willie Geist shared the flowers and note as part of the Today Show’s Sunday Mail segment. The show had asked viewers to share any good deeds they had seen throughout the week.
One viewer — a science teacher in Cypress — decided to share a picture of some flowers and a handwritten note she had received from one of her students.
“Real life! I’m a [second] grade teacher in Texas and this was delivered to my doorstep today,” Heather Alexander, the teacher, tweeted at the show. “You can’t make this stuff up!”
“Mrs. A, I miss you,” the note read. “I miss science. My mom sucks as a teacher. Enjoy your flower. Love, Emerson.”
Alexander’s tweet became a hit on Twitter, receiving 125 likes and several comments from amused social media users.
“Fantastic,” one person wrote in response. ” I can say the same about my kids’ dad.”
“Hysterical!!!” another user quipped.
