    The obvious question is: was the first an excuse?

    An excuse is a lie/deception with a sugar coating.

    If something actually happened, it’s not an excuse. It’s a reason.

    (I’ve actually had the silly cat ambush me at the door when I had an appointment. ZZZOOOOM! It’s hard to herd cats and she’s no exception.)

    Excuses mean extenuating circumstances. Though it can be abused and be a lie instead of the truth. In the Blues Brothers movie, Jake Blues gives every excuse in the book at once to his former fiancée. Then she accepts it.

    That’s not late at 7:27. The clocks signify the passage of time to the next day.

    My case too keith. And it does hurt. I changed it with my own kids though. They knew if they played hooky I would show up in class with them the next day. They never skipped school. That I know of anyway. lol

    We had a teacher that was ALWAYS late for our first period class. One day the principal came into the class at the bell and sat in the back. The teacher came in 15 minutes late and never said a word … just started the lesson. At the end, everyone left except the principal. She was never late again.

    That is a great scene, filled with really poor excuses.

    I’m with you on this one, Gaunt. Consider the phrase “legitimate excuse”.

    What gets me about meeting people today is that many don’t bother with excuses. Instead, they text you every ten minutes with a travelogue:

    “Running late.”
    “Just left.”
    “Traffic on the expressway.”’
    “Stopping for gas.”
    “Ten minutes away.”
    “Rounding the corner.”

    That person needs to be out of a phone for at least 6 months.

    I can’t get over how much Frazz looks like Calvin from “Calvin and Hobbes”, come to think of it, so does the kid in the 3rd panel.

    I don’t think she believed any of his excuses. She just found him charming in his pathetic dishonesty.
