Best Excuses to Get Out of School Swimming Lessons
My high school requires a written note from your parents for this to qualify as an acceptable reason to be excused.
As much as I hate getting periods, I'm still thanking them to this day for all the chlorinated hell they saved me from.
Will only work if you're female, hit puberty and only used once a month as that's how the menstrual cycle works.
This method is not great. My teacher just ask me to go get some spare pants from the thousand-year-old lost and found and wear it in the pool.
Ah, the classic, It usually can work if done once, but if done again, they might make you put a spare pair on.
But then you'll hear the dreaded "Spare costumes. Put one on." from your teacher.
This one would probably work, don't quote me on that though, it depends on the teacher sometimes.
I used to really hate swimming because of many ridiculous reasons including my race.
20 percent of people who use swimming pools have admitted urinating in them.
And..it's actually a misconception that chlorine in water turns your eyes red, it's actually a mixture of urine and chlorine.
Make it look like you do and act like you do as well.
This could work especially if you have an earache.
I peed in the pool
Like the nausea excuse, act like you have.
To make sure they don't look, say that you've got an open wound down in the groin.
This one is the best on this list so far! I can't believe it isn't number 1! The teacher is surely going to think you are really sick and let you stay in the medical room for the lesson!
This excuse is the most believable yet! You should win an Oscar! Here is your medal! This excuse is surely going to make many students from all around the globe grateful for this advice of a good excuse, and they will likely use it in almost every lesson! Well done!
Awesome, but how could you tell the teacher if your dead?
Definitely going to work
What if the teacher looks at your ear?
It's a pretty good excuse especially if you come to school with an earplug.
Sure, might work
Definitely doesn't work
This will get you out of swimming for sure. You most likely got STDs from the gym teacher anyway.
Make sure to shout really loud so all the other students hear you. "I HAVE (insert STD here)! "
My teachers won't care.
Alright, then get that life jacket on and do 10 laps!
This would never work
Does not work
Teacher: What does that have to do with YOU swimming? Me: I just, like, don't want to make him feel left out...
