Yup, still in the CAD class...
A couple weeks back, I mentioned how fourth period liked to line up at the door and sneak out before the bell. I stopped that by standing at the door. However, this story continues...
I would not be surprised if Nathaniel was one of the ones who got by me that first week. It was time for him to try a new tactic.
"That's the bell. Riiiiingggg. I just heard it."
Yeah, he pretended to be a bell right in front of me.
Me: "The bells don't really sound like bells. It's more of a buzzing sound."
So, for a week, we've been doing this dance. He makes bell ringing sounds. I give him a stare. We go back and forth for a bit until the bell actually rings, and then I let the class go.
But on Tuesday (I think it was Tuesday), Nathaniel tried another bit.
"I have to go now. I can't miss the bus."
The school has no school bus service. And the city bus comes along every 20 minutes or so.
"I have to get to work." He then quoted a time a half hour later as to when he had to be at work. So, he had plenty of time to wait for the bell (which rang less than a minute later).
Is it terrible of me that I rather enjoyed marking him tardy most of the week? (He was late. Like, he arrived minutes after the bell.)
