Remember in primary school when you’d have show and tell and you’d plead with your parents to let you take in your pet? 

You were always super jealous of the kids whose parents actually said yes – especially if they had awesome pets like reptiles and birds.

One little girl was one of these cool kids – and she took her two little snails, Anna and Elsa, to class with her in her book bag.

Unfortunately, though, the excitement was short-lived. Because, sadly for the little girl, so were her snails.

She had been doing some exercise with the rest of the class, and decided to let the snails out into the sink at the back while she did so.

When she went back to make sure they were okay, she was devastated to find the teaching assistant had thrown them out of the window – thinking they’d come from outside.

The poor little girl went home in bits that day. She was so upset, in fact, that her mum had to text her sister to make sure she’d show her support by acting equally upset – in a couple of hilarious texts.

The girl’s big sister, uploaded the tweets, alongside the caption: ‘My little sister took her pet snails to school. FFS me and mum are howling.’

It just goes to show that you can’t even trust your nearest and dearest.

We really hope Shauna’s little sis finds some new snail friends ASAP.
