Translation: One day, you will understand why the police and your grandma did that.


Don’t give up on your education, kids


To all the kids out there, having a policeman drive you to school might seem cool, but going to school every day by yourself is way cooler.

We all have lazy days, but it’s important for us to work hard. Now go get a backpack, and don’t make your grandmas cry!
