um ok but if you got in trouble for something you did when you left school without permission that would mean they would find out about the school bit and …. this is too much effort for something so insignificant
There is a difference between getting caught and getting in trouble for what you did? Really? I’ve always thought they go hand in hand, but we really need to let all of the inmates of ever prison in on this little jewel. Wow, someone needs to explain to this kid that there is no difference, the difference is getting caught and getting caught later red handed or getting caught in the act. I really feel sorry for us when these kids now a days gain any power…
GoddessDigi – be careful saying things like ‘a boat is a boat’. You might invoke the ire of the yachting community, who can be somewhat precious about the many things that distinguish a very expensive and exclusive yacht from a common as mud boat. They have been known to beat the living snot out of people with their spinnaker poles for less.
Michael means that he knows how to leave the grounds without getting caught.
i.e. he gets punished when they find out he has left the school but he doesn’t get caught in the act of leaving.
Thus he has one up on his friends who get caught trying to leave and get the same punishment as he does, as they haven’t had the same free time to sit in bus stops smoking and threatening old people before getting reprimanded.
