Lucy's Top Ten Homework Excuses:
If you need something besides “My dog ate it,” see examples below:
1 - My printer isn’t working, and it could take up to a week to fix. (Present an empty print cartridge for corroborating evidence.)
2 - I've been advised against doing any homework because a bad grade could damage my already fragile self-esteem.
3 - I’m practicing nonconformity. Since most of the students did their homework, completing it would make me a conformist.
4 - I had symptoms of illness last night, and when I googled it, it said I had West Nile.
5- - I found the assignment particularly uninspiring and didn’t see how it aligned with the standards, so I read the dictionary instead.
6 - Shhh. I’m a superhero and out on duty.
7 - I used invisible ink and didn’t realize it would be an issue.
8 - My thyroid is acting up.
9 - Okay, I’m sorry, but the directions were just not clear, unless this assignment was on the virtues of ambiguity.
10 - We had homework?
If all else fails, “No, seriously, the dog ate my homework.”
*Keep your poker face on.
*Cry on the spot.
*Believe in what you’re saying.
*Always say it with a tone of respect (or at least fake it!)
