After a 1 month break, my student managed to not finish the 8 exam papers I gave him. (4 weeks, 2 per week, quite manageable what I thought)

He did only 3, in the first 3 weeks of the hols. Then in the last week, he went for circumcision (yah TMI IKR.)

Me: So after the op you cannot do your homework?

Him: Cannot, the wound haven’t heal, I cannot even sit down to write for the whole week.

Me: So what did you do for the whole week?

Him: I can only lie on the sofa like that and watch TV (does reclining action).

Really very kiampa right…but how to argue against this?
