no, no one to call, just don't show up. You must be new to the college thing; unless you're in high school, in which case, grow up a bit would ya

my boss is out of work = I'm out of work, i might just go cruising all day long. and if i was still in college there wouldn't be class tomorrow.

I spent 30% of my money on fast cars, 30% on women, and 30% on booze. The other 10% I wasted.

I'm a Junior. The ditching class thing wore off after 1st semester. Believe it or not, I'm there to learn stuff. I also have a quiz.

depends where you're at I guess. Most of my classes were 300+ person lectures where the prof would put the slides online for people to print out then assign readings. Not much reason to go to class if teachers don't give a crap. Take the quiz, then get to cruising

I'd ditch if I were at community college since the classes are so cheap. When your at a private school doing engineering, each class costs $100 so its in your best interest to be there. Even more so as you move on to difficult subjects junior/senior year. High school? Ditch that of course

Damn! $100 a course at a private school? Which school is that? That should be $100 x 5. PER CREDIT HOUR!


Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil,

Whoops I should clarify. I figured total cost of school for 9 months, including room and board. Figure $38,000 a year, divided by 32 class hours =1187x3 hour class standard =3562.5/15 week terms x3 meetings each week=$79 a class. Don't think of it like that or you will end up going to every class.
