Dear Mom and Dad,
Just because I have one C and a B+ doesn't give you the right to change all my passwords on my laptop so I can't access anything that isn't school-related.
Sincerely, Every other grade I have is an A or better.
Dear mom of four,
Please do not hold your kids' heads under water in the pool. I didn't realize parents had to be told this.
Sincerely, the concerned lifeguard.
Please stop telling me all the reasons why I shouldn't do something, every time I come up with something new I want to do with my life.
Sincerely, Giving up on trying
Dear fast food restaurant customer with a complaint,
I understand you have a complaint about your food, but please let the staff member finish preparing a customer's order before barging in demanding their attention. Its a little rude to not wait in line, but to interrupt service to request the manager, who was serving somebody else, is really rude.
Sincerely, all that to complain about a hair in your food that looked suspiciously like your own.
Please, please, please let me see my grades. It's been two weeks, and if I look and see "grade not released" once more, I think my head may explode.
Sincerely, a stressed student who just wants to know if I passed.
Dear best friend,
Please understand that when I ask you for help on how to be less anxious, "just do it" is not acceptable advice. No matter how many times you say it, I will never understand how to even begin to "just do it".
Sincerely, scared and shy best friend
There comes a point where more experience doesn't mean you do it better. I've been doing my own laundry for 15 years. Just because you've been doing it for 40 doesn't mean you know better than me.
Sincerely, stop telling me how to run my household
Please stop calling me "crazy", "weird", or "psycho". I have OCD, I'm really trying to control it.
Sincerely, your daughter/sister.

Dear "nobody can tell other people what to do with their bodies",
Why is it okay for Planned Parenthood to sell (or even just donate) baby parts?
Dear people around me,
Please stop calling me up to speak in front of large groups of people without warning
Sincerely, a shy person who gets nervous in front of a lot of people
Dear Black People,
Please stop using Facebook, as they allow white racists to post death pictures of our black children that were murdered by white race soldiers, never closing their accounts or doing anything about it.
Sincerely, A mother that sympathizes with the parents of Trevon Martin, Michael Brown, Jordan Davis and so many
Please forgive me for being a Feminist Killjoy. I was under the impression that a class focusing on sexism, racism, and homophobia would draw people who care about those things.
Sincerely, why would you even sign up for this class?
Dear people who use mental diseases as adjectives,
Please stop doing it. If you haven't been officially diagnosed by a psychiatrist, then you're NOT suffering from OCD; you're NOT suffering from ADHD; you're NOT bipolar and you're NOT schizophrenic!
Sincerely, I am bipolar, officially diagnosed 5 years ago and do not appreciate your efforts to be "edgy" or "s
