Seven-year-old left dad a hilarious note in her lunchbox about 'hummas'

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.

Proud dad Pete, from Bristol, 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 dishevelled 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 colour.

"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.

"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."
