Dept. of Public Shaming

Here’s a story of parents who, frustrated by their son’s chronically poor performance in school, had him stand on a busy street corner holding a sign listing his lousy grades and the words “My future = shaky.”

I’m just really glad my parents never thought of this.

  2. I can imagine my teenage self's sign now: "Not living up to his potential."
