A Kirksville, Mo. doctor righteously and very satisfyingly slapped down a substitute teacher after she sent a note home condemning the lunch his second-grade daughter had brought to school.
The doctor and mad dad is Justin Puckett, reports ABC News.
As Puckett — who is certified in obesity medicine — later observed to the principal at the school, the teacher and a cafeteria worker didn’t see the whole lunch. Sure, they saw a pickle, a bag of marshmallows, some Ritz crackers and four tiny chocolate bars.
Importantly, what the sub and the lunch lady missed were four pieces of ham and a stick of low-fat string cheese.
There was no bread because the Puckett family isn’t big on bread. Also, the chocolate bars were for sharing with friends.
The most satisfying part of the story is Puckett’s response to the note the teacher sent home.
“Please see that she packs a proper lunch tomorrow,” the teacher wrote, addressing Puckett as a doctor.
