We have all used an excuse to get out of class, and 9 times out of 10 the professor could see right through our bullshit. Meanwhile, the teacher obliges because deep down they’re thrilled you won’t be in class.
This college student upped the ante, and hit the professor with the ol’ “There’s a SWAT team in my yard” email. Well done.
Some guy a few houses down snapped and barricaded himself in his house with an assault rifle, sounds like he took his wife and kids hostage too. Fortunately they got him (or he gave himself up) without any shots fired or anyone getting hurt
Most importantly, did the professor buy it?
