At 8:45 today my phone rang at work, It was C. I say "Hey C why aren't you at school?" (he should have left 45 minutes prior) to which he replies "oh that, I don't know, I just called to say hi."
The sitter never came to get him. I left work in a rush and was able to get him to school by 9:45. An hour late. Please also note that it is Monday, and all Monday's in FX County are half days. C was at school a grand total of 3 hours today.
