Kids turning to fake sick notes on internet to skip school

Caption: Fake doctor's certificate

 

Kapook reported that a 16 year old girl had bought a fake medical certificate on the internet in order to try and skip classes at school. 

 

The mother opened a letter with the sick note that said her daughter had been admitted to hospital from the 3rd of December to the sixth. 

 

It was just the 4th and her daughter was quite well. 

 

A fuss ensued as the doctor's surname was the same as a local politician who was a relative but it soon emerged that the daughter had bought the fake over the internet for 200 baht. 

 

The doctor at the center of the case was in Korea and it certainly wasn't his signature or the hospital stamp. 

 

He warned parents and teachers in a Facebook post to watch out.

 

Posters said it was easy for students these days to download forms from the internet. If they wanted something a little better they could pay criminal elements online to stamp it for them for which they charged a fee. 

 

The doctor has filed a police report in an attempt to catch the forger.

The plan was good, but the letter should have been sent to the school, me thinks. 

 

  I understand why they do such things, it's a torture to go through this kind of education.

if i posted a link to the story about how low Thai students scored compared with other countries and then posted this story on that stories comments would it create a giant feed back loop that would crash the internet? 

Also be very careful, my friend. You do not want to fight that defamation lawsuit.

Ah..."the old absent tee not"

 

I remember how difficult it was back in my day to try and sign my mums signature when I would forge a sick note, then one day the school noticed the differences in the signatures and sent my mum a few letters to contact the school as they couldn't reach her by landline, i.e. no mobiles.

 

She never received those letters as one of my tasks was to bring in the mail from the mailbox when I finished school.

 

Then I was called to the admin office one day, straight out of class, and was asked where my parents were, and I said is dad overseas (1974) at the moment, and mum sleeps during the day because she works nights as a nurse, they said the phone was always engaged, and I said, yeh mum sleeps during the day and takes the phone off the hook so she is not disturbed during her sleep.

 

Ok, so that is why the school has had difficulty contacting them, does your mum read English I was asked, yes was my reply, because we have sent her some letters and she hasn't contacted us, so you make sure you give her this sealed letter, oh, yeh sure, is everything ok, yes yes, just make sure you give it to your mum when you go home, ok.

 

I knew what it was about because I got rid of the other letters, but this was going to be tricky, anyway, next day I through another sickie, unbeknown to me, mum was supposed to pick up dad from the airport at 1pm, while me and my brothers were at school, but guess what, on that day, me being 16 and unlicensed, had taken mums car keys from under her pillow while she was asleep and took her car for a drive, a usual occurrence, but this time I got lost and when I rocked up at home at 4pm in the afternoon after I found my way home, dad, mum my brothers were all sitting at the front of the house waiting for me, the admin office went around at around 12pm and knocked on the door and asked mum where I was, when she went to get the car and noticed the keys missing from under her pillow, she knew.

 

I still recall the feeling of me dying inside when I saw them all sitting there. 

 

Fortunately for me I didn't get a walloping, although I was grounded for like a month, naturally I wouldn't take the car anymore and mum purchased a crook lock just in case, and I really feared my dad, he had a really loud voice, just ask my kids...lol, but was all bark, as I am.

 

As for school, well, it sucked, left at end of year 10 and believe it or not ended up doing two degrees as a mature entry student years later, yep, some of us are thicker than others when young, that said, I came good having a good career with 6 figure salary and investments made at the right time (real estate) which helped me to retire here at 55, what a ride, all starting with forged school notes....lol 🙂

 

Ok, I know it took you a while to come up with this story. Just one question. Is this your way of saying, it´s ok to fake your sick notes?

I suppose you could say yes, I mean if your bored and not interested in doing something, then why bother being there, an example would be like, a lot of people working, bored, but still working, I would like to think that I found a way out, call me a black sheep if you like, but today, I have taken back my own power, make of that what you may.

 

As for my kids, I am always telling them to look outside the square, although I am sure it will take a while to kick in, DNA 🙂

Even I have been absent without real reason fake notes and such. Did went on to study and ended up quite ok. I would not say that this is a major problem. It will be if the student is a problem student and messes it up. But skipping school sometimes is not a predictor to failure.

No, it´s a predictor of early entitlement and disrespect. Sure, sometimes it can turn out good or bad in the end. Still nothing to use as an excuse for it to go on.

Actually i see it as no such thing. I see it as learning about responsibility. I knew what i could skip and what not. I never failed always top marks of the class. 

 

Though of course not everyone is like me so can't really say it will always work out that way. But 4MyEgo seems to have turned out good. The other side of the medal is of course people who lack discipline and abuse the chance to skip and mess up their whole education. 

 

Hard, as usual the good will suffer under the bad as its hard to differentiate between both. 

 

I don't see this as a major problem, if they want to do something they should change how kids are educated in this country. Though the higher someone gets the better education gets as the idiots are gone. Mostly people who want to learn educate themselves higher so you only got motivated people usually better teachers too. 

 

The problems are usually where people start their education, motivation is bad there. When I did my higher education (was over 18 of course) we could decide if we wanted to come or not. Though the school (private school) gave a guarantee that if you did not skip lessons you could stay at this school at their cost if you failed. That did not apply to people like me who skipped now and again. Not that it mattered as I was one of few that made it in one go.
