What's the nastiest e-mail you've ever gotten?|
I'm a teacher (I feel like I say that way too much, but I use it to provide context...anyway..) and even though school ended on Wednesday I get an e-mail today from a parent who is unhappy about the report card. In the e-mail they call me immature, a bad educator, saying that I never gave their child a chance, and that I discriminated against him. This is about a third of the things they say about me.
Unfortunately it is not the first nasty e-mail I have received (from these parents, and ever). I am not obligated to respond because it's the end of the contract period, but I feel like I need to defend myself because everything was fair, justified, and many of their accusations were incorrect (no, I did not sit your child at the red table because he was bad. red is a color!!!!). On the other hand, I don't want to give them any more of my time.
I basically wish I could respond with 'LOL OKAY, FUCK OFF NOW. GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!' but I obviously can't.
