Being at school, i have heard some magnificent excuses and it never fails to amuse me some of the things people come up with. i read about one teacher once who said the best excuse he ever heard was two boys who told him they were late because they 'couldnt find the school cos it was too foggy" well thats interetsing XD hahahahahahhaha!

my favorite excuse is one my boyfreind told me which was really funny. they were supposed to be reading in english and he was writing to me; we live quite a way apart and only see eachother on holidays so we correspond by letters. ( he has no net acess.) anyway the teacher saw him writing anf got snarky and asked him why he was writing instead of reading, his response? "I am reading my heart and writing what is on it!" i thought tyhat was really good XD i have to try that one on my teacher some time...*giggles*....

so anyway...what are some good excuses you have heard?

I have made up some pretty good ones on the spot so many times, I wonder how I'm still in the top 15% of my class...XD

the most notable one in my mind was a Monday and a major project (the kind where you need a trifold board and all that) was due that I never even got past the research step. I told the teacher that I was out of town over the weekend at my uncle's beach house. My project was i the car and I took it out to look for something. I left it on top of the car (don'tyou jsut hate when you really do that) and it flew into the ocean as we drove off...

I think she really believed that one, but I still had to do a lecture to the class about the topic we had. but that was easy cuz i did the research anyways...

hahahhahha....thats a good one.

this girl in my class had to mke one up once we were suposed to have done an oral presntation on TV advertising and show a video of the commercial we chose. she didnt do it so she came in and said that she put the tape into the recorder but when she was watching it there was a blackout, the blackout really did happen actually, that was proven...but then she said when the power came back she tried to eject the video and the tape player ripped the inside of the tape and she couldnt bring it. the teacher just said 'well i havent heard that one yet. you have a 2 day extention. DO IT'. me i thought it was creative...XD

My friend tumble_weed once made up a whole list of really good excuses. Half of them wouldn't be allowed here, but others included "I was hit by a bus" etc. I need to look up the list.

Well, my first and only bf (can't say it's really real, since I was only 13), when he broke up with me, he said that his family gets cursed or something when he's in a relationship. When I was silent on the phone, he thought I was sad, but I was actually happy; I disliked having to give up my Saturdays for some person. I'm not really the loving type ;)

I'm too much of a hard-working goodie-goodie to have to resort to weird excuses ;p (but despite of that I'm still in the very bottom of my class... strange how you're the top of your class in junior high, and the next year you fall rock bottom to the bottom of the class x.x)

but then once I've heard a rather mean but effective excuses back in junior high... a supposedly dead relative plus a few eyedrops as fake tears will get you through any assignment easily. However this is rather too low and disgraceful...

I've seen this one on TV. A girl was acting really inattentive and then the teacher asked a question. The girl had raised her hand automaticall, and the teacher asked her to answer. The girl really did not hear the question... so she said, "Sorry, my hand was up because I was drying my nail polish!!!"

The only one that my brother and I have thought of is 'I didn't hear you!' But usually that's true; when I'm on the computer, it's impossible for me to make contact with anything in the real world. I'm in my own virtual one! XD

I made up my best ones in middle school...mainly because I have actually been doing some homework in High school XD

I commonly use the excuse, "I didn't hear you tell us to do it" mainly because it is true, but the teachers always have a retaliation of, "you could've just asked your neighbor or looked on the board; it was written down there"

I've made up some pretty good ones that I can't remember because now I'm in 8th grade and want to get into a good high school so now I do all my work. But one of them was always "I left it at home" (Pretty lame) One time when I was late for school I had a loose tooth I said "I was walking to the subway station and I tripped and fell and my tooth became loose so I had to go home and then I had left my keys at home so I was locked out and I had to wait 15 minutes for my neighbor to get home so I could borrow her set of keys. I think they believed me. :laugh: One time though some kid in my class raised both of his hands and waved them around and when the teacher called on him he said he was daydreaming and was one of those people at the airport who wave those things around. You know the people who stand in front of planes and walk backward. Don't know exactly what they do but it was pretty lame. Everyone laughed though.

Best excuse:My dog ate it

A classic

I make up many excuses and hardly pay attetion, I wonder how I'm one of the smartest in school.

Here is one I use when my teachers catch me not paying attention-"I was too lost in the lecture to understand it"It's confusing, I know

My best excuse: I forgot to bring it. What else?
Other best excuses: I misplaced my homework but I did complete it on time.

Arcanine, XD.
--> Now... Will any properly-trained teacher even bother listening to THAT excuse? They should know 'Arcanines' are UNREAL.

--> But you're an Arcanine, so why don't you eat your own homework?

:P

Shining Arcanine, may I go to your place to check out your real Arcanine.

If What is the best Excuse you have ever heard? is now in the right forum than this thread needs to be moved to that forum (Mixed Voting Polls), however, if this thread is in the right forum than What is the best Excuse you have ever heard? needs to be moved back here since they work together.

That is a great one, but one thing I didnt eat it. XD
The thread stays here its not a poll.
The best excuse I know if is "My dog (or Arcanine if you have one like me XD) ate my homework."

LOL! Good ones.

Also, I believe they guide the planes. ;)

I never need an excuse so I don't have any.

Well, isn't this thread old hehe. I don't know if this is an exuse but I remember saying one a long time ago when I was little. It was back when I used to live in California and my mom never let us leave the table without finishing all our "healthy" foods. Unfortunately, they're always yucky. I was the only one at the table while my mom watched me, and at that moment I came up with an idea.
I said "Mommy, this food is so good, can I save it for tommorrow?"
That's become something we say a lot in our family, although I can't remember whether I still had to eat it hehe.

That's too common that I feel that the teacher won't believe.
The next best thing to this will be: my brother tore up my homework.

Another one is when your parents burnt it by accident.

that one is classical that it's completely unbelievable... but then I did see a friend... err... someone-who-i-can-talk-to's dog *almost* teared off part of the assignment... But then I was laughing hard even though in the end no damage is done except for a teethmark (the dog just took it in his mouth and ran around the house... he dropped it in the end)

I stick to the original excuse for not doing H.W, My dog ate it! Even though I don't have a dog. Of course, she didn't but that buy excuse and I would say" Just playing. It's in my binder." Then I start looking into my binder and flip through all the pages. After I did that, I would make a serious face and say "I'm sure I put it here somewhere." The the teacher would say, "Quit looking, I believe you." Then I would go home and do that homework to make sure she really believe me.

Hehehehehe :badsmile:
