Duvet days for schools

If they can have them, why can't we?

Some companies provide employees with a fixed number of duvet days, whereby, on certain days, they can simply ring up work and tell their boss they'll be having a duvet day today and won't be coming in.

Some days, certain students feel tired in the mornings, and do not expect to work at such a high standard as usual. Not only could this reflect badly on the students and their teachers, but also bring down the class average.
On days such as these, students simply ring up the school and tell the staff they'll be having a duvet day today and won't be coming in.

       Because you get 12 weeks off 'work' and they get two weeks if they are lucky, thats why.

       If I did it, I'd be the laughing stock of the unemployment center.

       I have this image of some big guy in a hard-hat calling in to the shop foreman and saying he'll be taking a 'duvet day', he'd never be able to show his face again.

       Students get twelve weeks off, sometimes even more. Unless of course you live in Communist China.

       Ver ders duvil, ders duvet.   

       Some college students have 40 hour work weeks throughout the school year as well.

       My sister and I very seldom fell ill while at school. My mum used to let us take an occasional day off when we felt like it (frequently such days coincided with sports carnivals). Hooray for understanding mothers.
