When you’re a kid, there is nothing worse than coming home from a day of school to do more work.
But homework is usually a part of life – unless you’re able to come up with a very good excuse (No, ‘the dog ate my homework’ does not count) to get out of it.
So, that is what California teenager Eddie Cortez did.
Mamamia’s daily news podcast The Quicky will get you up to speed on what you need to know today…
The 14-year-old turned up to school empty-handed after being assigned weekend homework and his teacher requested a paper on why he didn’t do it.
Eddie saw this as an opportunity to argue his case – and he did a damn good job at it.
He argued he didn’t want to do homework over the weekend because “it’s a stress free time to go out with friends, watch TV and play games”.
“I don’t do it also because it makes me very mad and unhappy. I do what makes me happy because I want to be happy.”
