The Cubs' historic World Series victory has seen some remarkable loosening of attendance regulations. This Ohio University professor waved away a student's absence after seeing that he was attending a World Series game and a number of Chicago students ignored the rigmarole of "Forgot I had a doctor's appointment" and instead said they were late because of the Cubs.
That extends to the Cubs' parade, too. With the city of Chicago celebrating on Friday, college student Kayla Amber sent a short note to her professor explaining her absence. Rather than merely accept the one sentence explanation, her professor sent back a much better excuse:
Here's the text if you have trouble reading it:
Of course, Kayla did have another teacher not so willing to accept that reason as a legitimate excuse (probably an Indians fan, if we're guessing). She told CNN that she would worry about that issue later as she was already downtown.
At least she didn't email her teachers, "Please see tweet."

I will not be in class tomorrow because I am going to the @Cubs parade. I'm sure you understand my priorities.
