Teaching 2 classes at the same time

Professor Hale was out last week so I was teaching his class in addition to my own.  I actually enjoy teaching programming but teaching two classes at the same time can be stressful.  Each class meets for several hours in the morning and at night.
I had an odd experience on Monday.  Three of the students said that they were going to leave early and I thought they were joking.  I was about to cover some new material that day so it was certainly not a day anyone would want to miss.  They did leave 30 minutes after class began.  I thought it was extremely rude.  The next day they said they did not understand and expected me to go over the material again for them.  I told them they needed to schedule tutoring time because I was not about to penalize everyone else for their laziness.  I guess they are not used to the rigor of my classroom.
