One little girl’s delightful forgery claiming an extra week of school vacation

One little girl’s delightful forgery claiming an extra week of school vacation
The parents had the foresight to photograph their daughter retrieving the letter from the mail.

This note “from school” is the bestest, funnest thing I have seen so far this year.

The authorship has yet to be verified, but the parents of Cara, who appears from her picture to be around 5 or 6, seem to have decided (albeit good-naturedly) that it’s a fraud.

According to a Reddit posting by Cara’s mom, the letter announcing that school vacation would be extended another week, arrived on Sunday (a non-mail delivery day).

A photo of the letter appears below. It reads:

The school compnay [sic] is taking a brake [sic] so the kids will get one more week of school off and we will need your child to sign their name here.

The note not only has a line for a signature, which Cara has already completed, but a nifty pink princess stamp.

A number of commenters on Reddit had fun with the letter. Here are a few of the more upbeat reactions:
