ok, well i did a google search of the school out of curosity, and the first site that pop up is

http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/p/pacificpalisadeshigh.htm

in case you are lazy or dont want to click it, the site goes on to say the message was actually never appeared in any answering machine, it was created as a sarcastic response to the parents suing the school.

i still think its pretty funny, though

i thought it was an answering machine. if your gonna make it up, make it realistic.

If it's true that there are people who would sue the school for their children's incompetence, then the school shouldn't just put mocking messages on answering machines, it should also stab them in the genitals and prevent them from reproducing again.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

why would i spend that much time making something like that up. and didnt you see the link i posted???

and the point they are saying is you should thank teachers for teaching you how to read.

but aparently you didnt learn how to think in school.
