    I over sleep or have some other excuse.

    I find the following situation about the past. But the speaker, in the middle of the story
    about the past uses present tense.

    ''I over sleep or have some other excuse.'' Is this correct?



    As a kid growing up in Chicago, I was chosen to be in the All CITY CHORUS.
    I had no confidence, I would not show up for the reheases.

    They were always on Saturday mornings. I over sleep or have some other excuse.

    Re: I over sleep or have some other excuse.

    You can say that on Sturdays you usually oversleep or have some other excuse and that is why you can't be on time.
    What I don't understand is how and to whom are you going to say this, Is it a permanent excuse or will you use it just once?
    If could answer the question I could be of assistance. You don't have to tell me your life story. It isn't necessary.

    Hope I have been of assistance
