The Dog Ate My Flash Drive, and Other Tales of Woe p. 457Comprehension1.Segal is classifying reasons for being unprepared for class. Those fall into several broadcategories: the family, the best friend, the evils of dorm life, the evils of technology, andthe totally bizarre. 2.This comment is fair because if students lie too much, others won’t believe them whenthey are in the real troubles.3.Excuses such as the family and the evils of technology are reasonable to me. In contrast,excuses about the best friend, the evils of dorm life, and the totally bizarre are nonsensebecause others will find it difficult to believe.4.I think Segal’s frustration is justified. It’s just because she is fed up with the sameunbelievable excuses her students make.Her students are sometimes irresponsible and it’s typical of any other students.5.Segal wants her students to realize that she knows excuses students can make well, sostop making silly excuses as well as be careful about excuses relating to family.
