Staff members at a Delaware elementary school are apologizing after a sarcastic “Hurt Feelings Report” was accidentally sent to parents.
The Lombardy Elementary School, located in Wilmington, mistakenly emailed the report to parents as an attachment. The sarcastic form states that its purpose is to “assist whiners in documenting hurt feelings.”
A spokesperson for the Brandywine School District told NBC10 in Philadelphia that a Lombardy Elementary School staff member accidentally attached the form to an email informing parents of upcoming school events and news.
“The attachment was something that had been sent to them from a person external to the school,” the spokesperson said. “It was not an official document of Lombardy Elementary or the Brandywine School District. This was an embarrassing mistake, but it was just that – a mistake. It should not have happened, and we apologize for the error.”

Under the “Injury” section of the form, it asks, “Did you require a tissue for tears?” It also lists “I am a wimp,” “I have woman/man-like hormones,” “I am a crybaby,” and “Two beers is not enough,” as possible reasons for filing the report.
“Tell us in your own sissy words how your feelings were hurt, as if anyone cared,” the report states.
The principal of Lombardy Elementary sent a recorded phone message to all parents apologizing for the form, the spokesperson said. The spokesperson also told NBC10 a corrected email was sent to parents Wednesday afternoon.
Parents told NBC10 the email was an unfortunate mistake but they don’t believe it was a reflection of the school.
