To give himself more time for video games each night, he wrote a very serious note from "the school" about how he wasn't doing well in "VIDEO GAME CLASS." Then passed the note along to his mom, Lori, who then posted it on Reddit.
And it worked too.
"I held it up and asked 'what's this about' and he couldn't hide his devious smirk!" Lori told Mashable. "I emailed his teacher the picture of the note, and he had shown it to her as well."
Even though Nathan admitted to his mom that "the school" wasn't concerned about his video game grades, the hilarious note did earn him 30 more minutes of video game time that evening. We'd say that's worth it.
