As a teacher it’s amazing the number of times a student arranges to meet you at a certain time and never shows up. Â UsuallyÂ this is only an issue because of a scheduled office visit, in which case most often nothing is lost since you can continue to work on other projects–such as subversive comic strips.
What card game are Mr. Mittens and Professor Hobo playing here? Â Two player solitaire?
HOBO: I don't know. You were told you had to be present yesterday for speeches.
STUDENT: I know, but I was really tired and stressed from three other tests! I just really don't want to let you down in this class because I really like it.
HOBO: Fine, you can make it up Friday at two.
