Why FFS, just tell the idle **** that couldn't be arsed to turn up to catch up in their own time!
Everyone at my place turned up for work today and some of them live in the arse end of Northumberland, half way up a Cheviot (and some of them live in Darlo Mike and they made it to the toon so your students have no bleeding excuse). All this 'we couldn't get there' bollocks from teachers and others is just laziness as far as I can see. I just looked at the **** weather forecast last night and got out of my pit earlier this morning - and lo, I was at **** work on time, even though the council had been 'Caught by surprise' and neglected to grit any of the roads.
Jeez it really winds me up, we get a couple of inches of snow and everyone uses it as an excuse to either not bother or skive off. Tell you what, me and my colleagues will all skive tomorrow, see how you like that!!
