Top Excuses That Students Can Make For Not Doing Homework

Top Excuses That Students Can Make For Not Doing Homework

I have made plenty of excuses back in my old days for not doing my homework. I am sure you have also made many excuses in your high school and are still making for getting by the professor’s wrath. But the classic excuses of the dog eating your homework and the grandma taking her last breath are outdated. If you think about it, there are thousands of reasons to not do homework and take assignment help for the same. Here, I have listed some of the best excuses that you can make if you have not done your homework.  


Learn The Basics Of Telling A Lie

If you are telling a lie, and that too to the professor, you have to be extra cautious. You need to go beyond the conventional and the extraordinary. I’ll you this straight up, kid, there isn’t one excuse that you are planning to use from the search results on Google that your professor has not heard before. I have been associated with the academic domain for a long time and I perfectly know that there is literally 1 dog in a thousand who is actually going to eat your homework. Unless you have some powers like this kid, you forget using the excuse of dogs for good. [caption id="attachment_4354" align="aligncenter" width="461"]hell dog via[/caption] As they say, the devil lies in the details. Your lie is only as good as your details. Telling a lie is an enormous con and you have to remember all the details so that it doesn’t come back to bite you.

Tell a carefully edited truth.

To tell a perfect lie, you must tell the truth. Yes. Carefully edited truth. Bend the details in your favour. Suppose you went to a party on a Sunday night and got wasted and couldn’t do your homework. Instead of simply saying this, you can say that so and so celebrity also attended that you couldn’t make yourself leave.

Tell a lie that is believable

Tell the lie to yourself and then think if you would believe it. If your answer is no, how are you going to fool a professor who is an experienced player of the game you are entering? A lie is only good if it is believable. If you say that there was a raid by the SWAT last night into your home and they thrashed the entire place, it sounds absurd and stupid, right?  
Imagine this scene actually happening in your house. Did you laugh? So will the professor.

Keep your lies short and to the point.

A lot of students fumble while telling a lie when the professor asks back questions and they start including more information and more information making that one simple into an elaborate story. If you think that you are going to face such a situation and your professor is going to carry out an interrogation like the CIA holding a prisoner in a black site, you might want to hold onto your train of thoughts.  
The more you give away, the weaker your lie becomes and the greater is the probability of the professor throwing you out of the class.

Have You Tried These Lies?

I have heard some really good lies and some really stupid ones. So, here I have clubbed a couple of them that are believable, does not require you to cover your tracks and does not keep you looking over your shoulders.

I did it but didn’t save the file. The computer shut down and it was all gone in the blink of an eye.

This is a believable lie because, hey, a lot of students do not save their work as they type. The adrenaline in their veins and ideas in their brain does not allow them to pause and save the document. It is just them and their fingers typing the words on the keyboard.

My mom and dad got into a fight last night and the police were involved. *start sobbing*

Be careful because if you don’t live with your parents then this lie will be the last one you will be telling. Domestic violence is some pretty serious stuff but if it is helping to save your grades, you can use that. Say that you couldn’t concentrate on the assignment between all the bustle and the noise. The only problem with this lie is that the teacher does not take this up too seriously and the next thing you know is you getting a good beating from your parents.  
Look, such a happy couple they are.

I have been volunteering and didn’t get time to work on my assignment.

Insert the name of any random not for profit organisation who is working for the underprivileged and discuss your role with them. And if you are actually involved with some organisation like that, it will act as an added bonus and make your lie more detailed and believable. Kids, if you are not involved with any such organisation, then you need to be really careful with this. If the professor decides to ask you a few more questions in return, you might want to be on a more stable ground because you are now operating in the enemy’s turf.

I was getting late and, in a hurry, I grabbed the wrong pen drive for my presentation instead.

This is somewhat believable as compared to the death of a dog and Martians taking it for a human handwriting sample. That is total nonsense and is not going to aid you in any way. All you will be able to do with such excuses is make the class laugh and take the wrath of the professor. A student who is lazy and is always in a hurry (that pretty much sums up the entire student community) can make an error of taking the wrong pen drive instead of the right one. This is a good excuse for not doing your homework. But take care that the professor does not give you their phone, asks you to call your mom and have her bring the right one to the school.  
This happened to me once and it could happen to you as well.

My dog ate my homework. For real. I even have proof of the same.

If you own a mean dog, then you have hit the jackpot. If you don’t, you can always rip your homework yourself and throw it in front of the dog then click some pictures. This will not work every time but you can at least give this a try and get the teacher to let you go a couple times maybe. Make sure that your dog is not as mean like this one.
