I Should Have Apologized

Jeff walked into class one day, late as usual, looked at me and said, "Thanks Ms. POd. You made my mom cry again."

Jeff's mom is a doctor, a young, beautiful woman who emigrated here from Russia to provide a better life for her children. The day before, I sent her probably my 100th e-mail telling her of Jeff's lack of classwork, class participation and homework. She is worried about him and tries to keep on top of him. She is thankful for the calls and e-mails and knows that these keep him from cutting as he does in other classes.

Yep, I am the one who made her cry.

That's nonsense. You kept her informed and she appreciated it.
I would have responded, "I'm sorry if your actions and behavior is upsetting your mother."

I was being sarcastic. I told him exactly that. The class had a good laugh at his expense.

Good work. Now, why wasn't HE crying?
