With just over two weeks to go, parents are concerned that the UK may not finish its homework on time for the March 29th due date. Squabbling driven by sibling rivalry has prevented Britain from doing any actual work on this important assignment which will go on the country’s permanent record.
An extension may be granted if the student makes a request before the due-date, but the pet-ate-my-homework excuse will not be accepted this time.
Hand-wringing parents are holding talks over the dining table as they try to determine in what way they have failed their child and whether they should have enforced more discipline by requiring the UK to clean up its room more often.
A fail for this assignment could result in the UK missing out on the school ski trip later in the year.
