They're always late or they're absent for reasons beyond their control or even their parents' control. But let's face it - some of those excuses truly take the cake.
Here are our favourite online excuses that we've found:
1. My mom forgot to do my homework for me.
2. I'm sorry I'm late, I got lost on the way and ended up having a Tim Horton's hot chocolate and the line was crazy.
3. My brother's dog ate my homework.
4. I won't be in class today because I'm in love.
5. I got bit by a rabid dog.
6. I can't take swimming class today, it's raining outside.
7. My mother has a doctor's appointment and I have to translate for her
8. I can only hop on one foot today
9. My cousin forgot to come over last night with my assignment
10. I can't take the test because my fingers have cramp-it-is
What is one of the best excuses you've ever heard? :)
