A Creative Example
This excuse is especially useful in less populated sections of the country, but variations of it will work anywhere. It's called the Hiker's Dilemma and goes as follows:
You won't believe what happened (your teacher will undoubtedly agree with your opening statement). I was at the library writing my essay on The Declaration of Independence and I got so involved in it that I lost track of time and missed the bus. I stopped off for a bite to eat at Montezuma's cafe and called my Mom for a ride home. She was unable to come, on account of her lupus (the goal is to create sympathy; any disease will do), so I decided to make the long trek home...through the woods. After about an hour of walking and reciting our nation's founding document, Montezuma got his revenge on my stomach. I had no choice but to run behind a bush and squat. I averted one disaster, but my troubles weren't over. I had no toilet paper. I searched through my backpack and all I could find was my essay that I had just written. I struggled for over eight minutes, not knowing what to do. I finally decided to sacrifice the essay. I have it in my locker if you want me to get it. It's pretty disgusting though.........
Hey guys, what's the best excuses you've heard someone say for not bringing in their homework?
One of my friends said that he didn't bring his homework in, because the teacher never specifically said that it's part of the homework to actually bring it in. You guys ever heard (or maybe said yourself) any hilarious excuses?
Someone else said they left it in Poland.
We're in Northern Ireland.
None I've really heard are funny, it's always just "did it, but forgot to lift it"
Teacher to a friend of mine in history;
"You've not given me a single piece of history homework for the passed three months, where is your essay!?"
"Can't we just forget about my history homework sir? It's all in the past now anyways."
One I've read, but never had the chance to use!
"Where is your physics problem sheet?"
"I believe it's at home somewhere, but according to the Uncertainty Principle, I must admit I'm not 100% sure. Without losing some information about it's momentum I can't do any better than that, I'm sorry."
