LHACK4142 Posted March 12 Share Posted March 12 (edited) I hate it when people ask me what school I go to, because I have to admit that I'm homeschooled, which always leads to the same tiring and very annoying comments. Some of these questions that I get asked every few days include "So your parents teach you?" (no, I read from textbooks mostly) and "Are there any tests?" (kind of). These ones, however, aren't nearly so bad as one particular comment which always gets my blood boiling: "sO eVeRy DaY iS sUmMeR bReAk??" N O. N O. Every day is NOT FREAKING SUMMER BREAK. I hate that people think that I spend my entire life doing nothing and playing video games and stuff while I in fact work my ass off every day. I don't want people to think that I'm "so lucky", have it easy and never study. I don't want people to think that I'm some hippie that's scared of chemicals and is overreliant on his parents. I don't want people to think that I'm some idiot that doesn't know anything and has all the time I could ask for. I wish people knew that I probably do just as much work as them, and I wish that people would treat me and think of me the same as anyone else. Most of them probably do eventually, but that summer break question makes me feel like they initially don't. If you ever meet a homeschooler, just don't ask them about it. Homeschooled kids have heard this same crap too many times. Edited March 12 by LHACK4142 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
