The most graceless of truancies. Have you ever had to do it? How did you delicately clear things up afterwards?
yeah, (secondary school) just asking to go to the loo then not coming back in. i didnt clear anything up, the teacher had disliked me since i fell asleep in class
with 900 in my english, so if you go quietly you wont be missed
There are only about 30 to 40 people in my classes.
I try to be as quiet as I can and shoot the prof. an e-mail apologizing after (depending on class size because some of my classes are huge and people do it anyways). But I have to go watch the hockey now :D
but yeah, the classic "oh i'm off to the bathroom" then never returned has proved to be the most popular in my lecture courses. i guess it's just a matter of grabbing all of your stuff and not making a big deal out of it. see, i know i would manage to make a spectacle of myself, haha.
where kids will just walk straight out. every single corridor will have a kid truanting on it in some form, they just do what they want. wander in and out of school, sit in the toilets for hours on end, or just stand around... crazy
At most hours, anyway. We had ever-vigilant staff and a few security guards.
Most of my classes are huge-ish, so its easy to leave
Ive only ever left mid-class in a small class (10 people) once, and thats cos I was feeling ridiculously sick. I just got my shit together, stood up, walked to the door and said to the lecturer "im just nipping out to throw up or something" and walked out
That lecturer is cool anyway, Ive smoked with him.
and I usually have this really tragic expression on my face anyway as if some truly truly awful shit has just gone down so no one even asks any questions.
