Dad's Response To School About Son's Absence Is Going Viral (Photos)

One dad is known to kids as being the 'coolest dad' in school, but his snarky wise-guy ways don't make him quite as popular with the staff. When his son was absent one day, the school sent a text demanding he text a reply explaining why the boy was out. He gave them exactly what they asked for, and many find the response hilarious.

They say a picture says a thousand words, so Simon Morgan figured he'd give it a try. The businessman got a text from his son's school in Wales that read, "James Morgan was absent from AM registration. Please can you TEXT a reply with the reason for this absence. Thanks Stanwell School."

Morgan texted back an image of 15-year-old James standing on the beach in front of the famous Burj Al'arab hotel in Dubai. The school staff certainly weren't expecting a photo of the truant student donning a bathing suit, shades, and a big smile.

It seems Mr. Morgan didn't get a chance to inform the school about the vacation. "We only found out about the holiday the day before as it was through the travel agency that we run, so we genuinely didn't have time to plan," Morgan explained. "I know I should have told the school beforehand, but if you ask on things like this, unfortunately, they often say they don't approve of it, so I took a gamble. They didn't reply to the text so I think it paid off."

While some find the incident funny, Mr. Morgan has been chastised by others who say he's setting a terrible example for his son. Morgan had an answer for those critics as well.

"James is doing very well, is on target for excellent GCSE results and misses very few days so I knew it was not going to negatively affect his work. When I got the message I decided to send the picture because I think a picture tells a thousand words. I think from the photo it was then quite apparent where he was."
