13. Being Absent

A: Why were you absent yesterday?

B: Why do you care?

A: You should be thankful I care so much about your education.

B: The truth is, I didn't hear the alarm clock.

A: You missed out on a very important lecture.

B: It happens. I'll just ask my friend what was on the lecture.

A: Is she a good note taker?

B: I don't know. I guess?

A: If you were in class, you wouldn't have to rely on anyone's notes.

B: I can't change the past.

A: I know. Anyways, you should increase the volume on your alarm clock.

B: I suppose I could do that.
