Thanks For Taking My Money

Dear Snack Company,

I understand that the economy is bad, but does that mean that you are limiting the amount of cookies or chips that you put in the package?           Today, I bought a bag of chips, thinking that it would be enough for my friend and me to share. I opened the bag, and to my surprise I found that the bag was ¼ filled. Honestly, there were like 7 chips in the entire bag. So I paid $1.00 for 7 chips. That is .14¢ a chip. What a rip off?!?!? Seeing as the chips did not satisfy my hunger, I decided to buy a bag of cookies, hoping for more than 7 cookies in the bag. Well when I opened that bag, there were only 5 cookies inside. I wasted another dollar for 5 cookies the size of a penny. I have paid less for a Mrs. Fields cookie that is at least the size of 10 pennies. Thank you for stealing my money.

Sincerely,

Teen Drama Queen

How much would you pay for these?


Summer Stress Makers

To the (summer) stress makers,

Summer is a time for students “to relax and also to take a break from other childhood stresses associated with school such as peer pressure, cliques, bullying, and the pressure of heavy loads of schoolwork and homework.”

Summer is not meant for schoolwork, but for a break. By giving me summer homework, you are taking away my break. Don’t you think that 3 books, 3 packets and a few essays is a little too much work to do during my summer? The last month of my summer, I spent in my room doing my homework, and I still didn’t finish all of it. I am a slow reader, writing by hand takes me a long time, and it is all just plain boring. I didn’t even have time to see my friends because I was doing homework.

Now I expected that in my classes, we would go over the summer homework during at least the first few classes, but no. In ALL my classes, we had a test on the summer assignments, but never went over the concepts learned or the themes we read. Let me just tell you something: I DID NOT LEARN A SINGLE THING BY “TEAHCING” MYSELF, ESPECIALLY DURING THE SUMMER.

One thing I learned this summer- what it is like to have STRESS!

Thanks for ruining my summer and creating stress,
