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.
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.
This is why you go out to Starbucks when you know they're in the middle of a class, not when they're probably on a break.
Meh, who doesn't skip class though? No big deal. You payed to be in that class so he should shut it. You are paying for HIS Starbucks.
