don’t pretend

In my last teaching job, the headmaster once sent out a list of events for which we were allowed to take a day off school.  It read something like:  own funeral, spouse’s funeral, own-child’s funeral, parent’s funeral, second coming.

As I stood in the corridor reading it I immediately made another list of things I would rather resign for than miss.  Ever since, I have thought it was worth knowing what you would resign for.

Apparently, a certain rector in London lost his list.

Really — either say yes, and stick by it; or say no and play safe.  Saying ‘I didn’t realise’ doesn’t really wash.   See here.
