LimeyGoodteeth tells us more.
I am the original poster. It was an adult ESOL class. School policy - strictly adhered to - is that students can't be admitted if they are more than 5 minutes late and all students know this. Lateness is disruptive and disrespectful to other students. We all eventually had the cake later anyway!

I really hate when teachers do that. like, I have one that slams the door shut and locks it if your 10 seconds late (no exaggeration). sometimes they dont understand what you have to go through to get to class. I have to walk from one end of the school to the other and back, and you don't move very fast because it's so cramped.
sometimes you just gotta let thibgs slide.... go with the flow. take live easy.. i could see if they were consistanly late,but one day, id let it go
Sounds like you would be one of the kids always late for class. Seems very obvious when you look at how you word things. OH FYI. It is life, in this particular instance. Not, live. Maybe you needed all those extra minutes before you arrived late you realize, sometimes you need to look back at the things you type out and EDIT it?
2, it depends on the class. in my experience with some of my remedial ed. classes, you let one student off "just once," the rest expect the same all the time. for the classes where lack of self-discipline is a huge problem, it's important to set an example. not sure if this was the case with op's class, however. and 8, you're basing your assumptions about 2 on what, exactly?
I wouldn't pay attention to kritz, she always leaves condescending, stuck up messages. Maybe someone should refer her to Docbastard, he is an expert in removing things from people's bottoms, after all. #35, while it's true that you need to set an example, the solution contradicts the wanted result. 1. Problematic students would WANT to be excused from the class, therefore might do it on purpose. If a student considers being kicked out a "punishment", he probably wouldn't be a problematic kid to begin with. 2. You're denying them their education. Is this really the best punishment? I believe a more creative punishment is in order, while keeping them in class. OP, YDI.
Kritz, you really shouldn't criticize anyone else's writing until you have a better grasp on it yourself. While his writing may not have been perfect, it was at least readable on first glance. I had to read yours multiple times to understand your meaning because you can't seem to figure out where a comma goes.
Kritz, I really do not understand why the younger people find it necessary to make it known they are grammar queens. My guess is you are horrible in your grade nine English class, and feel that you need convince people otherwise. Too many comas is just as bad as a run on sentence.
Actually, she did most definitely have a run on sentence. LOL. OH, miss little angelpig, I am older than you. Please tell me how exactly I'm in ninth grade? I'm sure my postgraduate status, and my hubby would surely say something completely different. LOL. Ninth grade, silly kids. *smh*
That's what my cousin does. She shows up really late but she always has food for the teacher and says she was buying him food. Works like a charm. She is his favorite student.
That's what you get for being an anal hole >:l I was always late for class lol more then 15 minutes....
...was she sobbing because she thought she was pregnant? maybe she's trying to tell you something
