To get out of work, teacher invents story of killing girl8/3/2012
People come up with the darnedest reasons for skipping work. Sick kid, dentist appointment, running over a fictional young girl with your car and killing her — wait, what?! Scottish music teacher Derek McGlone hit a very wrong note with his latest excuse for not showing up to his job at Calderhead High School, telling supervisors that he had “knocked a girl over” with his car. “He said he felt his car wheels running over her body,” principal Joyce Kilmartin said. McGlone, who now has a 12-month reprimand on the teaching register, says he’s “embarrassed and sorry” for his actions. Sorry for your actions, or sorry your excuse totally sucked? [Source]
