Most parents wouldn’t take their kids out of school just to go on a vacation. But Simon Morgan is not like most Dads. Having received a text from the school asking where his son James was, Morgan replied back with a brilliant response…
Simon said: “We only found out about the holiday the day before as it was through the travel agency that we run, so we genuinely didn’t have time to plan.
“I know I should have told the school beforehand but if you ask on things like this unfortunately they often say they don’t approve of it, so I took a gamble. They didn’t reply to the text so I think it paid off.
“It was light-hearted banter, though admittedly it’s not the first time I have done it. James obviously thought it was fantastic and all of his friends loved it too.”
This isn’t the first time this has happened… In May 2015, Simon reportedly texted the school to explain James’ absence saying:
“Oh dear god… We took James out last night to celebrate the end of his GCSE exams. We had a couple of cocktails…
“Not sure what happened next but I’ve woken up in a hotel room with a six foot plastic flamingo in my bed and what looks like Mike Tyson’s tiger in the corner of the room.
“I think we may be in Las Vegas? I’ve no idea where James is. Will check the roof.”
