    Say you were busy and had to organise some stuff and lost track of time. Or yeah, say there was a family emergency :)

    I don't know what your college interview was for, but I suggest that you show that you are an organised person and that missing the interview would not have occurred but for a major – and more important – event. This is especially important if it is an interview that will determine whether or not you will study at that college. So make sure that you do not say 'it slipped my mind' or something similar that suggests forgetfulness and an inability to prioritise. So I agree with the family emergency.

    How can itjust slip your mind?

    You won't tell them you forgot, cause they'll think you're disorganised and can't take up responsibility... Ever occurred to you, that it might just exactly be the case?

    Seriously, it's your education and your future. I really don't get the mind-set.

    tell them the weed you scored was a lot stronger than you expected and you haven't been able to get out of your armchair. you think you might be able to pop in, in a couple of days.

    :lol: I'll add that to the long - and growing - list of Roll's gags. In fact it is almost longer than Bob Monkhouse's. :)
