//Substitute in pd. 9 comp meth is taking attendance, James isn't there
Peter: I think James is in the bathroom.
Sub: Then James is present when he comes back. He is not here so he's absent. I will mark him present when he is here.
//Later, Gautom walks in to pick up something he printed
Sub: Are you James?
Gautom: Uh, yes. *walks into lab*
//Sub is about to mark attendance, but people in the corner are laughing
Sub: Was that James? I don't think that was James. You know how I know? Because you're all laughing. I know that wasn't James.
//Nobody really says anything, just laughing
Sub: Who is James? Is he the class president? Why do you all try to say he's here when he isn't? James is absent.
//Even later, James actually walks in and goes to the sub to tell him he's here
Sub: Show me your ID.
Sub: I need to see ID to know you are James. You have a school ID?
James: *gets his ID out of his backpack and shows it to the sub*
Sub: James.. James Park. Okay. *marks attendance*
//James goes into the lab, everyone is laughing
Sub: I knew it wasn't James because you were laughing. Why do you all try to get James marked present?
