A Kat Production
He only became upset when you gave him the standard notification of corporal punishment to take home to his mother. Mom believes in reinforcing school punishment at home with grounding. Ethan wants you to sign the notification form so Mom never knows about the paddling. When you demur that you aren’t his legal guardian, he tells you,
“This is so unfair! I’m getting screwed because you won’t sign, but I can’t even forge the signature like I used to do because you’ll know if I don’t give it to her.”
Apart from the disconcerting news about past forgeries, what will you say to Ethan?
