In Somalia, the literacy rate is 50% for men and 25% for women. In America, it's almost 100%. I'll admit that sounds pretty sucky, buy just be thankful for your opportunity to get an education.

33 - Just look at the grammar and spelling of your sentence. Then think about what people who say "one day won't make them stupid" can do to society... Edit: Looks like 41 beat me... ;)

A similar situation happened to me. One morning swim practice the lifeguards didn't show up on time. There is a rule that if they don't show up for a half hour, we can go home. They showed up 27 minutes later. >:(

97- you're missing the point, the point is that OP got really close to being dismissed from school, and just when his hopes got high, the universe spit in his face. it wouldn't matter if the time limit was an hour or just ten minutes.

One time, our power went out here in the whole town for about two or three days. We went without power for one day at school, then all the other days we got to stay home.

Getting out of school is exciting! One time last year (I was a junior) we got out of a whole 90 minute block because our teacher was busy and they forgot she had a class at the time. XD

When 9/11 happened ( I believe it was grade 10 for me ) the school let us take the day off. No disrespect to what happened that awful day, I was just giving my short story of time off school

I do anti-bullying and anti-homophobia presentations at schools and a lot of schools give us the entire afternoon, so I let kids out early. I'm just a nice guy like that.

Somebody called a bomb threat at my school once when I was a niner. We got half the day off and the school had to call the bus company to send busses to evacuate everyone. Man, that day was the 'bomb'.

In my opinion it's difficult comparing college to high school. In high school, for the most part, it's a free education in college when you have to pay for it you tend to take it more seriously or at least in my case.

So you're telling me when you were in highschool, you wouldn't want to get out early? Why do people try to be like kids these days when they were kids once... some must have forgot what being a kid is like i guess.
