Brings back some bad memories, doesn't it?

Ah, handwritten notes. For centuries they've been the chosen medium for parents to remind* their children to get on with household chores (and let them know they were bad, bad, VERY VERY BAD upon discovering evidence of them doing The Sex, The Drugs or The Violence).
