Well I have never, mainly b/c the school rings you're house to see if you're really ill. Then you're in trouble. And 'cos u have to catch all the work up. A friend of mine has ''extended dentists appointments or a headache'' each time there's a test.
What usually works for me when I want to stay home is if I tell my mother that I have a headache and I feel like I'm about to faint, lol. I don't do it too often though but my sister comes up with the craziest excuses. The other day she plans this whole thing out from the night before where she starts coughing and then in the middle of the night, wakes up and goes to the bathroom to pretend she's sick. Then she coughs all through the night and by the time morning comes my mom is asking
her to stay home, lol. I have to admit, she is a pro but that is too much work for me. She has to work twice as hard because she's always pretending to be sick...
But yeah, if you skip school over here they don't always call home. It's kind of risky. My friends usually just give the school their cell numbers and when/if they call, they'll answer it.
same here. one day i wondering why i was marked absent for all my classes when all i skipped was homeroom i was like wtf? lol anyways yeaa.
I'm always later for homeroom and when my teacher marked me out and didn't tell me I went through like 3 periods before someone asked me why I was on the absentee list. In my school 1st period comes before homeroom so you can go to first period, miss homeroom, and then just go home.
