Question of the Day

When I was in first grade, my teacher made a comment on my grade card which was frighteningly prescient:

"Plays well with others. Does not follow instructions. "

This might as well have become my mantra-for-life.

Friends have reported equally Pre-Cog teachers who assessed them with phrases that predicted their adult lives, such as:
  • "Amuses himself with silly games."
  • "Listens well, but does not pay attention."
  • "____ needs to speak up."
So, the Question of the Day is:

What comment or critique from a childhood grade-card or document (yes, margin-notes on a high-school essay count) has proven to be completely accurate (or inaccurate) about you?
