We all have drained our brains thinking for the perfect lie that could save us from our teachers.Unfortunately, the excuses I’ve always given to my teachers were the truth, and resulted in an ugly-cry, dribble smeared across my face and hair stuck to my damp eyes while screaming “I’M SORRYYYY! My little goat Lucy decided to eat my geography homework (and my i Pod earphones, which I was slightly more mortified about). I don’t remember what the repercussions were – I probably fainted with worry, but thankfully escaped a detention. Because all my excuses are based on real-life events. (Stay with me here, trust me with this…) You’ve admitted it you have offered to be reprimanded. Meaning, these excuses really will work for you during your time of need: 1. Without losing some information about it's momentum I can't do any better than that, I'm sorry." 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!?Without losing some information about it's momentum I can't do any better than that, I'm sorry." I, myself have made up some pretty good excuses but can't seem to think of any at the moment.-Next up was the fact my school banned the use of memory sticks due to viruses so a few times I I brought in a blank memory stick and asked the teacher to print off my homework to which they replied "oh no I can't they have been banned" cue the look of fake shock on my face "that's ridiculous what are we supposed to do if we don't have a printer" too which they replied "I know it's stupid oh well can you e-mail it to me for tommorow" which always bought me an extra day and again they never blamed me for it because they foolishly assumed I had done it and it was the schools fault not mine Another excuse a different friend made was that he went in a fishing boat with his granddad and he was doing his homework there. Not really that funny, just the teacher's response which made it interesting haha.Suddenly there was a really big pull and he had to help his granddad pull so he threw his book into the air and it fell into the water. Forget about the dog eating your homework, you need an excuse and fast! So, in the spirit of World Teacher’s Day, here are some excuses for not handing in your work that your teacher might just believe… (Embarrassingly, I’m not just talking about about primary school here.) My most unbelievably-true excuse was that my goat ate my homework. Of course, just doing your homework may be a whole lot easier.I’m afraid this list is coming from a goody-two-shoes student. …this is not a lame spin-off of ‘the dog ate my homework’. We were bottle-feeding two young goats in the house (to my dad’s despair) because it was cold outside. Despite me not being a particularly bad pupil at school, I happen to think that this will work in your favour. Although this sounds like a typical excuse, it can actually become a genius one. Run up to the teacher and confess you’ve forgotten your homework (look worried) Apologise, and ask if there is anything you can do, maybe stay in during lunch?
