My PE teacher would say "detention" for all those who didn't do PE without a valid reason. Me and my friends never bothered to turn up for the detentions. At the end the teacher just said to us "I don't want to see you guys here anymore unless you want to participate" so we just sat on the benches talking. We "coched" (as we would say in school)
Period pains. Mainly because I was in an all female environment, it never worked.
Although, in an all male environment, I don't see the problem.
Ramadan never worked either.
But, I liked PE.
My friend, who always forged letters, I dragged into lessons and made her actually -move-.
my 'period pains' thing worked as i had a older male teacher and i kept exaggerating it and clutching my stomach etc lol!
at my school they said they dint wanna do it and didnt have to 4 ages then got stricter then got lighter again and just went to other lessons for c.w and that, period pains dint work tho, it helps they said. yesh right!!

I've told a few terrible ones in my time, surprised she let me get away with it...
The best one was "I fell off the bus last night", and the worst thing is, it was true!
I loved PE. I used to be a beast at rugby (I was the only one in the class who played competitively so I slaughtered them) and also rounders, because I'm really over-competitive and actually tried to win.
I would honestly do the detention on Weds lunchtimes than the PE. I hated it so ******* much.
My mate had a note that lasted from the first week of yr9 til he left, very unfair.
I'd mysteriously feel ill in the last 5 minutes of my history lesson every Tuesday, then toddle off to sit quietly in the office for an hour til hometime. Thanks Mrs Howell for letting me do that!
A simple "not feeling well" note suffices. Only now and then for swimming lessons, though; firstly because I suck at swimming and secondly I knew I'd get a cold :P
if it was a bloke teacher i used to just mention period and he was like errr ok ok sit out, no question ha
"I banged my head"
worked for 7 consecutive weeks...!
