Most people have either personally experienced how hard it is to be with one’s children daily during the novel coronavirus pandemic. So to help lighten things up, here are some jokes.
Little Johnny was quite excited to be home for a while and away from school but he was a bit of a handful, to be honest. His mother had to contend with entertaining the little boy throughout that time and it wasn’t the easiest task.
Finally, the long three month school holidays came to an end and Little Johnny had to return to school. His mother breathed a sigh of relief because her son was really difficult and quite naughty.
LITTLE JOHNNY WRECKS HAVOC
However, just two days into the new school term, the little boy’s teacher reached out to his mother. The educator informed the parent how upset she was with Little Johnny’s behavior.
No! There’s no one called Alf here
The little boy was causing havoc in class and he was misbehaving. His mother, on the other side of the phone, responded angrily: “Wait just a minute!”
SHOW ME THE SAME COURTESY
She continued quite upset herself: “I had Johnny with me for three whole months and I never called you once when he misbehaved! Why can’t you show me the same courtesy?”
Now we all know how inquisitive our little ones are when they’re still young. They have a multitude of questions and this was the case with a little boy who was with his father.
EXPLAINING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WORDS
The boy asked his father to explain the differences between irritation, aggravation, and frustration. The parent calmly picked up the phone and dialed a random number.
MAY I SPEAK TO ALF
The person on the other end answered and the father asked: “May I speak to Alf, please?” The random person on the other side of the phone call responded: “No! There’s no one called Alf here.”
The parent hung up and said to his son: “That’s irritation.” Then he picked up the phone again and called the same number and asked for Alf for a second time.
STOP CALLING ME
“No, I said there’s no one here called Alf. Go away,” the person said. “If you call again I shall telephone the police,” the person angrily responded.
WHAT IS AGGRAVATION
TEACHING ABOUT FRUSTRATION
The father picked up the phone for the third time and dialed the same number again. Speaking to the person on the other side, quite casually, the parent asked: “Hello, this is Alf. Have I received any phone calls?”
