A secondary school had a policy that the parents must call the school if a student was to be absent for the day. Kelly decided to skip school and go to the shopping centre with her friends. She waited until her parents had left for work and then called the school. "Hello, I'm calling to report that Kelly Jones is unable to make it to school today because she is ill". School secretary: "I'm sorry to hear that. I'll note her absence. Who is this calling?" Kelly: "This is my mother."  

A new teacher at her first school, was given the name list of her students.  When she saw the numbers beside the names ...130, 145, 120, 129...she was really happy to have a class with such high IQs.   She worked the class hard and at the end of the first semester the principal praised her for getting such good results.  She said it wasn't difficult, considering the IQ level of the class.  The principal asked "what do you mean?". She showed him the name list with numbers. He said "They're not IQ numbers. They're locker numbers!"
