Wasn’t missing the bus the worst feeling? You stand there helplessly on the sidewalk with your arms waving in the air as the bus speeds down the street away from you.

Ahhhh, memories.

A boy recently missed the school bus and decided to write his mom a long letter explaining what happened…and it is totally hilarious. We’re talking A+, comedy gold level.

The boy’s sister Sarah shared the letter on Twitter.



Here’s what the letter said:

“As your son, I regret to inform you that I’ve missed my means of public transportation. I know you must be on a rollercoaster of emotions right now but rest assured, I’ve decided to stay home. This was a tough decision to make while you were gone for 20 minutes.

I’m probably in my bed moping about the fact that I can’t go to school, so please don’t interrupt me. If you require any further assistance, please see the pros/cons chart on the back side.


– First day home this quarter, grades will be fine.

– Today was gonna be a bad one, can’t get over my hair.


– Might become a habit (doubtful)

-You have to call the school and tell them I’ve got polio.”

Sarah then provided an update.


What a relief. I was hoping Mom would give the kid a break. I mean, it seems to me like he put a ton of work into that letter, right?

Folks on Twitter thought the whole situation was hilarious.

She’s right: this is peak comedy.

I predict a future for this kid in either creative writing or improv comedy.
