CLEAVELAND, Ohio — An Ohio University professor was upset with an absent student for skipping out on class until he heard the student’s excuse.

The student posted the exchange with his professor on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

Geology Professor Damian Nance emailed his student after class because the student checked in for attendance at the start of class but wasn’t there at the end of class.

“Can you explain this, or should I take it as deceit, for which I have zero tolerance,” Nance wrote.

Nance’s student replied with an explanation and some photo evidence. He explained that he came to class, swiped in for attendance and then handed his homework to another student. He left after that because his dad had World Series tickets.

“I understand if you have repercussions,” the student wrote.

He also included a picture of himself with his brother at the game.

Nance accepted the excuse.

“That looks like an impeccable excuse,” Nance wrote. “No repercussions. Go Tribe!”
