When it comes to communicating with parents, some kids have no qualms about putting their grievances in writing. The resulting notes -- often slightly menacing, and nearly always littered with cryptic misspellings -- toe the line between inappropriateness and pure hilarity.
"If you put a pas w word on that I will make your life a nitmare," a computer-happy 7-year-old girl recently admonished her mom and dad, for example.
The latest piece of eccentric children's correspondence to make the rounds online is no less frank or error-ridden than past viral hits -- but it's getting noticed because the author delivers a surprisingly sophisticated messaged.
When one dad, who goes by simonhac on Twitter, asked his children to pop a batch of old balloons that were lying around their house, his 8-year-old wrote him the following deadpan response: "Would you like it if just because you were old you got poped."
Wise words from a child who has yet to face the reality of getting old -- but seems to know a little something about empathy, gratitude and aging, nonetheless.
