A mother's hilarious "sick note" - written to explain her daughter's absence - has gone viral.
Nicole Poppic wrote to the school to explain why her 14-year-old daughter Cara wasn't on time.
She explained her daughter was suffering from a condition known as "teenage-ism".
'Adolescents across our great nation are afflicted, and there is no known cure,' wrote the California mum.
Luckily it turns out the condition isn't life-threatening and the teen quickly recovered 'after watching her cell phone fly out the car window'.
