Teen won't be disciplined for skipping class for Halo 3... and caught on TV

A high school student who appeared on television meeting Bill Gates after waiting in line for Halo 3 won't be disciplined for skipping class, Issaquah school officials told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.

Ritesh David was shown buying the first copy of Halo 3 at a Bellevue Best Buy store and shaking hands with Bill Gates early Tuesday morning. Gates autographed David's copy of the new game for Microsoft's Xbox console.

A note from David's parents claimed he was "ill" that day, officials with the Issaquah School District said.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm sorry but that's just awesome. Skip school, with your parents permission, get the 1st copy of the biggest game of the year, and get Bill Gates' autograph to boot! Talk about an awesome day.

Thats awesome in your book? Damn, it's not like he got a blow job from Jessica Alba or anything. And how much is Bill Gates autograph worth...nothing?

its obvious he wasn't sick. if you are sick how can you play video games.

If he didn't get Halo 3, he'd be really depressed and get sick. So, in the best interest of his health, his parents let him go line up for Halo 3. It's called preventive care.
