Poor D, though. When he was working, he didn't get Veteran's Day off. Now he's in school and still doesn't. He went to tutor yesterday and said it was kind of a waste of time because the kids didn't have homework because of the holiday. Kids get the day off school, but D--who's actually a veteran--doesn't. That's messed up.
And he's kind of annoyed because he only has the one class today, and it's a quiz. It's the last quiz, and they get to drop the lowest score, so he doesn't even need this one. So he has to go all the way downtown to take a quiz that will have no bearing on his grade. But he figures these cases will show up on the final so he may as well be familiar with them. Still.
