An elementary school teacher who was allowed to keep his job despite being late for work 111 times in two years said Friday that breakfast is to blame for his tardiness.

Maybe he should switch to something that he can eat on the go like a Pop-Tart? I know about 5000 N.C. teachers who would happily take over his job for $90,000 a year. They'd be on time too. The average salary for teachers in N.C. is around $40,000.

If he was smart he'd have blamed Chris Christie for traffic problems in Fort Lee.

So he was late for school but was never late to class... huh? Does somebody take roll call in the teachers' lounge before school starts or something?

What was breakfast? Scotch eggs made with actual scotch?

He's a dumb*ss...and, I am a sub, so I should know.

I am a "timesheet" employee, but the clocking-in thing is HUGE for jobs such as teacher, counselor, nurse, etc. It does not matter if you are the worst or the best example of your species...it is also immaterial whether or not you are expected at your post right away...YOU HAVE TO CLOCK IN EXACTLY WHEN THEY SAY YOU SHOULD.

And, no, they don't catch up to you right away, but when they do, then this is exactly what happens: no mercy. And, again, this character KNEW that...he must have a well-placed relative somewhere, because anyone else would've been applying for Christmas help at Macy's by now.

Well, it IS the most important meal of the day!

He is chronically late. Put him in detention.

Or rehab.

like k says one should worship and obey the god clock because that's all that's important. who gives a damn about stupid useless breakfast and teaching kids... I'm watching you k.

Sounds like more than just his eggs is scrambled.

In the movie "Clueless" the class stoner accepted his tardiness "award" and credited Mc Donals's egg mc muffins for the important role they played :) I think he stole the excuse.
