Mine would be that, contrary to what my teachers expect of me, I don't suffer from insomnia.

Me and my mate were late in year 7. We claimed not to know the time. When miss pointed out my friend was wearing a watch he took it off, hit it on the table and claimed it didn't work. The hands fell off.

Lol I said some fat kid fell down the stairs (we're on a 3rd floor on a monday) and he was blocking the way.
That was pretty mean, but the worst part was...it was true, this kid is so fat he couldn't get up, and he's one of the "special" people and goes around the cafe and eats your food when your not looking, he broke someones arm after they tried to stop him from taking their food...scary

I remember when my head of year buckled down the stairs, it was a laugh and a half! And she was huge, scarily huge, and no one messed with her. But after she dropped someone called out in the style of Limp Bizkit:

"Keep rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin'!"

Riot!

Well, the last time I was late (20 minutes), I said it was because of the snow and that my journey time was extended by a further 15 minutes. They will probably have said 'then why not leave home earlier' but at least I did actually come into college and I had to be careful not to slip on the ice and break a leg or something!

The last time I was late where the teacher didn't really say anything was on the first day back from Christmas. I actually lost my ID card and had to queue up with about 50 other students at the main gate!

I get so angry when teachers say it to me, they don't even say it now because I waltz in after being absent for four lessons and end up leading the class discussions, which I always find funny, I was sick for a month and came in got told off then we had a lesson about News Values and I kept correcting the teacher for his definitions and spelling.....hehehe
If they say that to me I just turn around and say, "Oh sure I will next time as long as you can provide me with a bed for the night!" the only train before mine is the last train the night before.
*******s
I am really bad at college,

During exam months (OK and the month before) my mate hardly turns up, he takes voluntary study leave and goes to the library. SO when he does go in he can expect remarks like:

"Oh hello, are you new?"

"I thought you dropped the course..."

"Someone told me you died..."

I used to be typically approached with "You're late" to which i normally answered "yes" or "again?"... so "Americans on the bus" he wasn't expecting... he was even more bewildered when i explained that it was true. Realising how much more time that took, from then on my excuses shyed away from a typical "i didn't get here very quickly" or over used "tellie tubbies were a double bill this morning" and turned to more abstract suggestive "dead... tyre stuck... three of them... blood an guts... oh i should really go home." and mumble when confronted further... sometimes cracking up... or simply "oh i should really go home then." they still hasseled me so i started improvising stories which go on for ages without explaining anything... was met with anger... persisted. By second term of sixthform the teachers typically questioned me with a simple nod as i walked in, and i explained my tardyness with the affirmative action of sitting in a chair. ahh. success

tardyness is usually explained by: dont worry Miss Wise, we wouldnt want you to have a heartattack.....oh, you want a tardy card? here!
