I found this on Pinterest listed as a GREAT gift to give to a teacher at the end of the year. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how this is a great gift. A bottle of A&W Root Beer that you likely dragged out of the bottom of your pantry, dusted the cobwebs off, and slapped a bow on with a cutesy little card that says “You are an AWesome teacher”?!?!? Seriously?? Boy, it must have taken that mom forever to come up with that ingenious play on words. What would one even say to this when it gets slapped on her desk, besides “Did your Mom happen to put a little Root Beer Vodka in that bottle?”. I cannot believe that almost 40 other people actually re-pinned this and said what an AWesome idea it was. This is not AWesome…it is just plain AWful….and insulting! You’re better off giving nothing (or even just the corny card attached to it) rather than making your kid embarrass him/herself when they have to schlep this to school and give it to the teacher in front of the class. It would get a lot of mileage in the Teacher’s Room or get cracked open (over much laughter) to use as a mixer at an End of the Year party in another teacher’s yard, but that’s about it.
I dub this Unpinteresting!
