When I was a kid, we took field trips to local factories and nature trails. A class in England took a trip to Cyprus! However, their return was knocked off schedule when an Easy Jet flight was delayed 20 hours due to foggy conditions. The students were supposed to return to school on November 2nd, but didn’t make it until the 3rd. While they waited for the fog to clear, Easy Jet pilot Wayne Mott jokingly offered to write school excuses for anyone who wanted. The entire class took him up on the offer!
His note to one student read as follows: "I am very sorry that Joshua was not at school today. He has been involved in a secret mission in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea at very short notice. We hope that this mission will soon be complete and that he will see you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Tuesday morning."
