Truants

Every now and then, kids from the high school round the corner ditch class to come sit on our street across from my house. Lately, its been the same group of kids, and they've been there every day for a week. That's a bit much, so I called up the school, who directed me to call the PD. So, today, I came home, they were there again and I called. In some ways I feel like a shit for doing it, but we've had a break-in (well, not technically, since my door was unlocked - someone came in and rummaged through our bedroom..) and a group of bored teenagers sitting around doing nothing makes me somewhat suspicious...
I don't get it anyway. If you're going to ditch, at least go do something fun. What's the point in ditching just to sit on the side of a street, doing nothing? Why not just sit in class and do nothing? At least that way, you won't get dinged for attendance. Hmm. Maybe I'm just getting old.
Wow. The cops just called me back. That's great - class is out right now...

Just be careful...high school students are notorious for doing stupid s**t.
