Why give gold stars when you can give gold teeth? That’s the rationale Kevin Stokes used when trying to decide on how to reward his fifth grade son, Vincent Holloway, for getting good grades in school.
For a good report card he got $500 gold crowns. If you’re wondering, they’re bottoms, not fronts. He’ll probably have to make straight As consecutively to get fronts. You have to work your way up for those, y’know.
A guidance counselor – possibly jealous – confronted young Vincent and demanded to know if the grills on his teeth were real. Wow, did she really tried to play that kid? I can see her in class now.
Counselor: “I know damn well you didn’t sell enough cookies to buy real gold.”
“Your daddy still owes me $6 for paying your way for the field trip, so how is he going to buy you some gold teeth?”
Haters will hate.
No she didn’t. She’s since been reassigned pending an investigation. Let’s hope none of those kids have diamonds in their mouth.
Poor kid. He’s a victim of his father’s ignorance and a victim of his guidance’s counselor disdain for grills.
I don’t get it. It’s Florida. How distracting can it really be?
Rewarding someone for good grades with gold teeth is like rewarding someone that saved their virginity for marriage with herpes: now that you’ve got it, no one wants you be it in their beds or place of employment.
