This thread made me think of how I missed my final exam for one class freshman year of college. Basically I never went to class and the date for the exam had changed for some reason and I wasn't there to get the update from the prof so I ended up showing up for the exam on the wrong day. I actually then emailed the prof to say I think I had the wrong room for the exam, and he was like no you moron the date got changed, obviously you weren't coming to class because I announced it multiple times. Amazingly he let me take make up the exam and I passed.
Everybody knows you only live a day but it's brilliant anyway
