Hi friends, Today while I was cherishing my schooldays memories an event came to my mind that once I fled from my school for going to watch an action movie at a local theater. That time it was a very thrilling experience for me. Hey friends, If anyone of you have ever fled from school, please share your feelings with me as to why you did that and how you felt that time fleeing from school. I wish all my friend on MyLot a very happy, prosperous, comfortable and peaceful life.

We could not be truant from school. If you were absent from school they would call your parents. If your parents said that you should be at school then they would send an officer to your house to pick you up. And that officer would wait there until you showed up. Then your parents would be sent a bill for the officer's services. Then you would have to deal with your parents and in my house that would be no fun at all. If I missed the bus or didn't feel like going to school, I always made sure that I called my mom or dad and explained the situation.

Hey dear sleepylittlerose, I completed my school education from two schools. My first school wasn't so reputed and many students used to abscond from classes on various reasons. For example: angling in local water bodies, playing football in a remote playground, watching movies in the theaters etc. I evaded my class only one time. And as I was amongst a bunch of scoundrels, we were very cooperative to each other in these cases. If someone was absent from one class the others would advocate for him to teachers making introducing pleas for his absence. But I was not a bad student. My progress report was always bright. My childhood days were really thrilling. Have a good day.

When I was a senior in high school, myself and most of the members of my senior class cut school many times for our own pleasure. The most vivid in my mind is so that we could all go to a day at the races. You see, there is a very nice horse racing track that sits a few miles away from my high school and it is a place that most of us had been to growing up. It is legal in our state to gamble at 18 so for most of us this was the first time that we would be able to bet on our ponies without parental guidance.

faridmadeabillion did you really, make a billion that is?Lol. no my parents were very strict and I did not play hookey ever as I did not want my parents angry with me. I was a girl and in those days girls really did mind their parents or else. Besides I sort of liked school and was a fairly good student so why would I want to do something bad like that and getin trouble? I am glad I did not skip school as going to school and college prepares you to grow up and make your own way.

Hey dear hatley, I'm not a billionaire. But I wish to be a billionaire. Because, if I can earn that much money, I'll establish a multi-sectional departmental store where the essentials goods will be sold at prices lower than the market to make the life of the poor and the helpless. In my school life I evaded my class only one day. In fact, I was so good in study and always achieved first position in the exams. That's why, I didn't care when I felt like evading any class on any excuse. I completed my school life from two schools. My first school wasn't so reputed and we were to many in numbers to follow for the teachers as to who is present and who is not. It was a common phenomena of a primary school in Bangladesh that time. Even there was no system of complaining to the parents. Moreover, I've got a mentality to learn from real and practical life. Therefore, I've been able to build up myself as a happy, comfortable and peaceful person. And I'm satisfied with myself. Have a peaceful life.
