Busy in bed

There's always one isn't there? Odd days off, no note, 10 minutes late most days.

Well, I've got one, a nice little boy who can't be held responsible for his parents.

So the other morning, I said: "Hello Peter, off again yesterday. Weren't you well?"

He looked blank, as usual, and replied "Weren't nothing wrong with me. It were me Mum and Dad - wouldn't get up, stayed in bed all day."

"Right," I said and lessons continued.

Next day, a note (these are the actual words, only the names have been changed so I can't be sued).

"Dear Mrs Hall

Peter was away from school on Monday because his father and I had personal matters to attend with, and could not get back until late in the evening.

Yours faithfully, Mrs Jones."

I'm definitely missing out.
