    He wouldn't do his homework or put effort into his classes.

    He is very intelligent and musically gifted yet when it came to schoolwork, he couldn't be bothered.

    One day in middle school, he decided to do his homework and the next day he was the one answering all the teacher's questions about the assignment.  He came home and told me what his teacher had said to him.  She said:  "You know you're not dumb, you're just stupid."

    I concurred after I stopped laughing.  He thought it was funny too.  He made it thru high school and a couple of years of college and now he is safety supervisor for an international shipping company. He's not dumb or stupid now.
