"I am aware of the verbal quiz you brought to class. I do not expect the opportunity to take the quiz however, i want you to know that i am following up with the reading.

Having an adult child gives you the right to say the following:

to online scammers: “well, my daughter says not to give you my information.” 

to telemarketers: “well, my daughter says not to talk to you anymore.”
