This Dad Sends The Best Texts To Explain His Son's School Absences

Old school.

Now here's a dad that puts the "cool" in school. Right after taking his son out of it, of course. 

Simon Morgan, 43, has blamed everything from time machines, hippos, and lions for his son's lateness and absences.

But he's hit the news after he and his wife Claire took their son James, 15, for a last minute holiday to Dubai.

When the school text asking "WER R U NOW?" (we're paraphrasing, of course), Simon hit back by sending a photo of James in front of the famous landmark the Burj Al Arab.

Nice.

But also, stop being late, James. GCSEs are totally important. For at least a week. 

Behave yourself.
