my student's parents call to excuse them because they had to get their nails done, take sr. pictures, or go shopping. but then they don't understand why their angel isn't making straight a's.

those pictures will be with them their whole lives not like that Guy de Mousepoint and Nails - you don't do your nails ? Every girl needs to start taking care of her nails. When you go get a job they don't care what foreign tongues you got in your head they look at your hair and your nails.
These parents have it down.
