Oh, the irony. Your ethics must be taking a sick day, too. *cough* *sneeze* Start sniffling and tell him that a Pumpkin Spice Latte really clears your congestion. :] OR, punch him in the face and run.

yeah. you maybe could have said you had to take care of some very sick relative for the day or something, that way if he caught you at starbucks you weren't necessarily lying - you weren't the sick one. ydi

To be fair, the dude said he had flu simptoms, not the flu. They could've easily just gone away and he couldn't be bothered to go to college past that point.

Actually I'm in college and we are only allowed to miss 3 days for every class. So you are absolutely correct, you do have very right to "just not go". However you can and more than likely will be dropped from the class - so it's a huge waste of money. But agreed with most of the comments here, you didn't have to lie. As long as you haven't missed many classes you don't even have to give them a reason. A simple "I will not be able to attend class today" would have worked.

I couldn't show up for English class one day because I was meeting a couple of friends who were in town for that one day. The next time I went to class, the guy didn't even notice I was gone. He was all "What? Oh. Well I dunno, there was a power point." Going out of your way to get away with something you shouldn't be doing only makes it harder for you to get away with that thing.

That's when OP runs into his/her psychology professor, who then says, "Glad you're feeling better. Hope you can attend class tomorrow, we'll discuss the motivation behind lying."

Um, are we sure OP is in college and not in school? Because if he/she is in high-school, they are probably NOT paying the professor :|. I don't know though, isn't public schooling for free in Texas/US ?

Because they are not professors. They are teachers. And Ethics is a very common college course, and a very very rare highschool course.

I just like to say that if any student ever says, "Well, I pay your salary, so you can't do that!" to a professor, that they deserve any failing grade they may receive after that.
