A Jack Production
Now, as you approach the end of the first six weeks of school and the first progress report, you go online to see how Otto is doing with his grades. You see that he has two assignments that were never turned in. That really bothers you because, not only did Otto promise to prioritize homework over his home workouts, but he's also kept a list of homework, and it said that everything has been turned in.
When Otto gets home, you check the list again, and it does show that everything was turned in on time. You ask, and Otto tries to be surprised and say he turned everything in, but you're pretty good at reading him, and you're not sure he's being honest, so you tell him you're going to contact his teachers, but also ask if they returned the assignments to him.
At that point, he confesses that he might have missed turning something in, but it's not a big deal, and you 'need to understand I have to keep up with my workouts.'
Do you understand, or does he need to understand?
