I live in France and last week we had to write a dialogue in which I wrote:
But Sir my parent called I am excused
I don't know if it is correct.
We were supposed to write a dialogue where you arrive late to your first day of school and explain to your teacher why was that. In case my sentence is completely incorrect and you're not understanding a thing it's supposed to mean that my parent called the school to say that I will be late for a reason that wasn't the fault of anyone here I was stuck in the subway in between station, so you can't punish me "I'm excused" I have been forgiven for my delay. I don't know if I'm making any sense to any one right now, but it is a very common expression in France, and I figured I could use it.
