so i am on exchange from america to italy for this school year.
wednesdays, i have only one class
on tuesday night, it snowed about 3 inches
wednesdays i have to walk to school for about 30 min
i didnt want to walk through the snow getting all wet for one class (and it was an unimportant class)
so i wrote a text to my host mom saying that i wasnt going to school because of these reasons
in the message i asked it that was ok
she didnt reply
so i stayed anyway
when she got home, she saw me and was really surprised to see me
she asked why i wasnt at school
i gave her these reasons, showed her the text and everything
she said 'sorry, but you are on an exchange for school, not to stay at home....youre from colorado, a little snow wont hurt you, besides there isnt any snow on the roads'
i have three things about her response, 1, the exchange is not for the school, i dont even get any credit for going... 2, snow will still get me wet, even if im from colorado, and 3, the way i walk to school is through fields and alleys, places where snow WILL be, im not going to take the long way and walk on the roads....
so i said sorry that i didnt go
she said that it didnt matter to her and said 'do whatever you want'
i know she is mad, but what can i do to fix it, and what could i have done differently to avoid it?
Answer on Question about what i should do?
Dont sweat it man, why get wet for some dull class? You done good and let her know whats what. I say its too late to fix it and dont bother. Wear ya rubber boots next time.
