Improved Unacceptable Excuses

I grow weary of student excuses for lateness.

"The bus was late."

"The halls were too crowded."

"I was talking to my counselor. No, he didn't give me a pass."

I taught my ESL students some new things today.

"Boy, this place is hard to find."

"What, this period is English? I could've sworn I had bio this period."

"I must be getting senile."

They'll still be late, and they'll still have terrible excuses. But at least they'll be a bit more interesting.
