Sick of It
King David High School has a policy that the parents must call the school if a student is to be absent for the day. David Applebaum decided to skip school and go to the mall with his friends. So he waited until his parents left for work and called the school himself. This is the transcription of the telephone call.
David: "Hi, I'm calling to report that David Applebaum is unable to make it to school today because he’s sick."
Secretary at high school: "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I'll note his absence. Who is this calling?"
David: "This is my mother."
