UNFINISHED HOMEWORK EXCUSE

Remember the old unfinished homework excuse.... 
The dog ate my homework....
or how about.... 
I forgot to take my book home? 
  The latest is.......
I spent 2 hours catching up on facebook and didn't have time to get it finished.....
TRUE STORY from a university student! I thought to my "old fashioned self"  ARE YOU KIDDING ME? 
 Have you heard any other great ones?

Oh...you wouldn't believe the excuses I have heard from my students (I teach at a community college). But then I had to wonder about the computer-related excuses when my computer actually went on the blink a couple of weeks ago!

You know, that doesn't surprise me. It's a different world and being "responsible" means something different today. It still brought a smile at the creativity! Hope you're doing well. We'll do dinner when we get back!

Student walking in the last 10 minutes of my class: "I forgot we had class today."

Me: "You mean the class we have every Monday and Wednesday at 10 am--you mean that class?"

Student: "Yeah, that class. I forgot."

Me: "Wow."

I believe you. I do. The best excuse I received this semester: "My sister got a good grade on it so I thought I would too." The same student said, "I didn't know I had to show up for the final." Sigh. ~Kelly
