This is the brilliant note a sassy seven-year-old schoolgirl left for her dad in her lunchbox – telling him "I not etting my sandwish because I hate hummas."

Pete Simson, 37, asked his daughter Pearl, seven, what she thought about her packed lunch that day, once she had returned home from school.

She told him she'd left a note in her lunchbox - and he thought it might be a cute thank you note, or a lovely drawing.

He was left laughing when he found a note addressed to "DAD" which said "I NOT Etting my sandwish because I hate hummas."

Proud dad Pete, from Bristol, England, said:

"Well clearly, she wasn't a fan on the sandwich I made her! This was after school this week."
"I asked her if she liked her packed lunch and she told me there was a note in the lunchbox!"
"I thought it might be a thank you or something but as soon as I saw the disheveled sarnie in there I knew something was amiss."

"The dark brown pencil it was written with should have been a clue, it was a foreboding color. I was both amused and horrified."
"Amused because she'd gone to the trouble to write it and the cute spelling, but also horrified 'cos she must have been Hank Marvin (rhyming slang for 'starving')."
"This is a very Pearl thing to do - she is what a casual observer might describe as 'sassy.'"

He joked:

"To her mother it's the sign of a strong woman but to me it's plain insolence. I should add my own mother made the worst sandwiches on crumbly bread when I was a kid, but I made damn sure I ate them."
"I suppose it's nice I'm following in a family tradition. Pearl also HATES sourdough, with that and the “hummas" she'll never be a middle-class icon."

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
