But Mary Sommers of metro Dayton, Ohio said the teachers who taught her son this year deserved something a little more intoxicating.
“How many coffee mugs does a teacher need?” Sommers asked. “But who doesn’t need a glass of wine after teaching a kid like mine?”
Good thing her friend just happens to work at a printing company.
As a joke and a thank you, Sommers and her husband gifted their son Jake’s teachers at Ascension School in Kettering, Ohio with bottles of white wine with personalized wine labels reading: “Our Child Might Be The Reason you Drink So Enjoy This Bottle On Us.”
The Sommers’ oldest son, Daniel Joseph “DJ” Sommers, a sophomore at Ohio State University, posted a photo of the bottles on his Twitter page and the post went viral. So far, it has had more than 5,400 retweets and 36,000 shares.
Sommers said her son is not a bad kid, but he is “that kid.”
In Jake’s case, the buckeye didn’t fall far from the tree. Somemrs said she was “that kid” when she was a student at Ascension, too.
My parents always get our elementary school teachers a present around Christmas. Typically something small like a candle or flower to say thank you. This year they got them bottles of wine & replaced the labels with their own with my brother on them... Happy holidays pic.twitter.com/hErPgrjX44
