A New Jersey elementary school teacher was almost toast -- thanks to his proclivity for, well, toast.
Despite arriving late to work 111 times in just two years, Arnold Anderson can keep his job as a teacher at the Roosevelt Elementary School after a state arbitrator rejected the school's attempt to fire him, according to a report by The Associated Press. Anderson, who has been a teacher for 15 years, said it's all breakfast's fault.
"I have a bad habit of eating breakfast in the morning, and I lost track of time," Anderson egg-splained to the AP. "I have to cut out eating breakfast at home."
