Bonjour,voila enfaite je doit imaginer un retard ou une absence en a peu près 4 lignes en anglais mais je n'ai pas d'imagination SVP aidez moi

Hello Mrs. I was absent yesterday, because the car of my father broke down. We brought him(it) to the garage, but they are did not find the breakdown


Please be so kind as forgiving me for being late today. As a matter of fact, the schedule of the train I usually take was changed as there are strikes downtown. Would this situation last for more than 2 days, I promise I will take a car so I can arrive right on time in the future. Please, accept my apologize again.
