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.
