There are tons of excuses that my students give for missing class. Frankly, I don’t care what their excuses are, but they give them to me anyway. Here are some of my favorites (with the grammar corrected by me…these are just the gist of their messages).
I can’t come to class because…
"It’s too sunny."
"I have to buy a car."
"I have to take my friend to take their driver’s test."
