We have all heard the excuses, and maybe even used them ourselves, to get out of trouble for not finishing homework. Well, it seems like school children in 2021 are much more advanced when it comes to dodging homework and lessons.
As we all know, it has not been an easy school year this past year. However, pupils who are now getting to grasps with schooling from their kitchen table deserve a round of applause.
Not only should we give a hand of applause to our school kids, but more to our teachers and staff at every school in the country. They have worked extra hard to ensure our kids are safe and still getting the education they need.
It was not easy starting the new school year with uncertainties of what this year may hold. However, one clever boy came up with a smart way to get out of it. For two weeks, a schoolboy fooled his teacher to dodge any questions in class.
TV presenter Chris Arnold shared the story on his Twitter account.
My wife is a teacher and apparently one kid has been changing his name to 'Reconnecting' during the Zoom lessons so that he doesn't get asked any questions. Been doing it for weeks. The lad doesn't need to worry about his education, he's already a bona fide genius.— Chris Arnold (@ChrisArnoldInc) January 25, 2021
Soon his tweet went viral, reaching thousands of likes and retweets. Several people responded to the funny story. One person joked; "I am not sure whether to be excited that the future is bright with this kid or worry that he may choose a political career."
Not only did people respond to the brilliant story, but lots of other people also shared similar stories. They just prove that the kids of today are getting tricky clever.
Another dad shared some of his son's funny stories. He posted; "My son said some of his friends had set a looped moving image of themselves staring at the computer screen as their profile pic. Also lots of kids having private chatrooms to cheat on tests or in case someone gets called on in a lesson and wasn't paying attention."
Another man responded with "Sounds like my son! Thinking I was clever turning off the WiFi to get him off his Xbox. He was one step ahead of me and connected his mobile hotspot from his phone to his Xbox and had been playing for hours!"
