Dear Mrs. Gresham and Ms. Bowman’s class,
WE QUIT! We are absolutely tired of how you treat us. We try our hardest to support you every single day! You try holding a 9 or 10 year old every day…it is exhausting! We feel underappreciated. How would you feel if you were dragged along the floor??? IT MAKES US SO ANGRY!!!!
Don’t even get us started on swinging. Do you know how scary it is to be chilling with four legs on the ground and then ALL OF A SUDDEN have only two on the floor. If we could scream, then we would. Did you not hear the story of the child who swung on a chair and cracked his head open?
Finally, WHY do you leave us untucked all the time? I know you are in a hurry to get outside because you want to play and eat BUT leaving me untucked means your friend will get hurt by tripping over us. It hurts us when we trip somebody because we don’t want to.
If you care about us at all, you will do something to fix it. PLEASE do something to fix it because we love supporting you. We are just really tired of being treated unkindly.
This is our official resignation. WE QUIT!
