A schoolgirl asked her mum to write a false sick note to get her out of P.E. - but instead of excusing her daughter, her honest mum said she was suffering from 'Bone-idle-itus'.
The girl, called Olivia, apparently hates outdoor exercise but her teachers only allow pupils to miss the lesson if they have a note.
So she asked her mum Sam to write a letter and falsely claim she had a valid medical excuse to skip P.E.
Imagine the girl's shock when Sam wrote that she was 'perfectly fit' to take part and that the only medical complaint she had was a severe case of 'Bone-idle-itus'.
Sam went even further and suggested that a few extra laps would help Olivia to warm up before her lesson.
According to the Daily Record, the mum posted a picture of the letter which has been shared over 3,000 times on Facebook.
Sam said: "Well here you go Olivia here's your note for PE, it will be sealed & in an envelope ready for her to hand to the head in the morning."
The letter reads:
Dear Mr XX
Olivia has requested that I write her a note for PE. Here it is...
Olivia is perfectly fit and well to take part in her PE lesson today.
The only thing she's suffering with is a severe case of Bone-idle-itus!
Olivia's complaint is, it's too cold to participate.
Might I suggest a few extra laps to warm her up?
Please return to Olivia after reading.
