Netizen Aries Abogado shared how he was supposed to present a report in class. When he didn’t show up, his teacher, Professor Angie Alvarez, didn’t let him off the hook and still made him present. This time though, it was via a phone call; making use of a loud speaker.

According to Aries’ post on Facebook, “Hi po Ma’am! The best ka! ‘Di mo po ako pinalampas.”

He also added a disclaimer how he isn’t encouraging other students to be absent from class. He said, “Disclaimer: Hindi po ako nanghihikayat na umabsent, nagkataon lang po na nagawan ng paraan para makapag-present pa din.”

The teacher’s wise and considerate action was hailed online. According to Aries, he is a working student and unfortunately his schedule didn’t match with the class’ time, so he had to be absent. Good thing for him, his teacher was very gracious and still allowed him to report instead of not getting a mark at all.
