Tonight at parent-teacher conferences we had what was probably the shortest conference in the history of education - except maybe for the parents who don't show up at all.
We did the 10 seconds of obligatory introductions, and sat down. I looked down at her report card and said, "Good grades, good comments - unless you've got something, I'm all set." He paused for a moment, kind of thoughtful, then stood, stretched out his hand, smiled and said, "Nope, that about covers it. Have a nice night then."
