ImpendingCynic: DarkVader: If I remember correctly, I had over 30 days of skipped school by the end of the year.  I don't really know, it's not on my "permanent record", I checked.
You're lucky. I was late for 3rd period in 7th grade, and now I can't get a mortgage.


You're lucky. My girlfriend was late for her next period, and now I can't afford a mortgage.

Mugato: I never skipped class. Weird. Seemed like something too easy to get busted for.


I once skipped class...to go to another class. My grades in Gifted English were suffering, so I blew off a BS crafting elective to sit through the class twice a day. When my dumb-as-fark assistant-coach cum disciplinary dean heard me say it, it was like you could smell the cheap aluminum wiring in his brain burning.

buckler: A couple of friends of mine in high school had a pretty good day off once. A mutual friend decided he'd had enough of his abusive dad, and went to the local university library to study toxins.

I'll add my CSB
First day of school freshman year we got a packet full of emergency forms, waivers, etc.  I took the packet home, had my parents fill everything out and tossed it in the trash on the way to school the next day.

I went to the office said, "I lost my packet" and they gave me another one.  I filled everything out and handed it in the next day so that everything, include may parents' signatures, were in my hand writing.  Then all through high school I wrote my own notes.  I skipped a metric shiat ton of school.

He settled on ricin, and found an out-of-state chemical supply warehouse who would sell him some, but it had to be picked up and signed for in person. He recruited another friend, bought him a plane ticket and sent him to pick it up.

My two close friends got wind of this, and intercepted the guy at the airport when he returned home with the vial (this was way before the TSA existed, of course). The convinced the guy to empty the vial and replace the contents with water. As he was doing so, they contacted a teacher, who called police. The vial was handed off, and the kid with the abusive dad emptied it into dad's coffee mug. He was later convicted of attempted murder.

In 10th grade I managed to miss he entire second marking period without getting caught by my mother.

I'd go to school for homeroom and then leave. Spend the day at the local arcade getting high and goofing off. I'd help out cleaning up a little and get some free tokens. The next day I'd go back to homeroom and get called into the office for leaving. They'd give me 5 days out of school suspension. So, 5 days I didn't have to bother with going to homeroom. On the 6th day I'd leave after homeroom again.

Rinse, repeat.

/never saved anybody, though

Not when I was in high school.

Senior year was the best, they were between attendance policies that year, there essentially wasn't one.  On top of that, I didn't have a first period class (hey, who wants to get up early as a high school senior), so I never went on the absentee list.  After the first time I missed school, all my teachers knew this and didn't bother even calling it in.  I had afternoons off campus, so nobody ever questioned me about driving away from school either.  And of course I was in AP classes, and nobody expects the AP kids to be up to no good (we all were, of course, but they didn't expect it.)  If I remember correctly, I had over 30 days of skipped school by the end of the year.  I don't really know, it's not on my "permanent record", I checked.

But even before that, it wasn't too hard.  Teachers could be convinced to give out passes, parental notes could be forged, there were always ways around the problem.

Rattrap007: Anderson's Pooper: Now give them credit for time served and we have a deal.

Exactly. THAT is quality community service.. Let others pick up trash or something. These kids saved a life.


A life that will cost taxpayers money in medical bills.  Nice going kids. Enjoy your higher Fartbongocare tax bill
