Top Ten Best Excuses for Not Doing Homework

Ever wandered into school, then went into a panic attack when you realised that you'd forgotten your homework? Well, here's a list of explanations to give to your teacher, so stay calm.

The Top Ten Best Excuses for Not Doing Homework

1 My dog ate it

I will always tell teacher that and soon they found out it was a lie - flora36

Teachers didn't even believe this when my parents were at school. - Entranced98

These are great but I tell the truth. - JFASHION101

Just get it on video

2 It offended me

It was sexist, rasist, evil, and just plain wrong.

3 I left it at home

My school either makes me do it at break times or even on the weekends so I don't think this really works in my school

When I don't do it I leave it at home, tell them I left it, nothing happens to me, I do it later that day

I'm pretty sure we have all said this before.

Good one but don't use it too many times

4 You asked me to do it, you didn't tell me to do it, so I thought it was optional

I like this one it is good and I think this might work sometimes...

It's a bit of a smartass statement, but, it will probably do - EpicHorrorMaster

Good one


5 I ran out of toilet paper

Best thing ever I'm going to tell my teacher when I forget it

my teacher would kill me

Haha laugh out loud

6 Some bullies stole it

That's a reasonable one. - SamuiNeko

That's a good one to use

7 I had an accident, so I was rushed to the hospital

I've used this quiet a times

8 I put it in a shredder

I wanted to shred paper, but it turned out it was actually my homework.

That one's not so good. Your teacher's just going to say that you need to be more responsible.

The teacher will shred you

But if you say you put it in the shredder your teacher will get mad and probably give you a new sheet or whatever your homework was if you keep saying you shredded it you will get ditention or something so think of better things "don't try this at home kids"💋💋💋💋💋💋💄💄💄💄💄

9 I spent the afternoon playing with my cat
10 I didn't have time

Sorry I was too busy getting lost in my closet and searching for Narnia.

Pretty good excuse.

The Contenders

11 My house burnt down, along with the homework
12 I left it at school

I mean u really left it at school s I don't know what do

I forgot my homework in school

13 I saved it on Google Drive and the school computer blocked it

This would be a good one to use as long as the teacher doesn't make your prove it. It also shows how many stupid things the school computer blocks (I'm looking at you, iBoss). This has even happened to me when I was trying to do homework on Google Drive and it was blocked because of "prohibited email-based content." I ended up having to do my homework on my desktop computer at home. - KN

Yanduku drive lo save chasucunavura

14 It was so cold at my house that the ink in all the pens became a bose-einstein condensate, making it impossible to write with them
15 We had a family meeting
16 I did it on the computer and the printer broke

Not a good one. What if the teacher says you could have printed it at school? - Entranced98

You could save it on a USB drive and go to a relative's house or the library and print it out there


17 My computer got a virus

This is a reasonable one - EpicHorrorMaster

18 The dog had puppies on it
19 Didn't you feel the earthquake?
20 I threw it in the recycling bin

Bura unda yedava

21 I thought it was an important document of yours that I had by pure accident, so I mailed it back to you
22 I played video games all day
23 I became a ninja
24 You assigned homework?

Haha! I said this...she said " you didn't know? "...and that's it! - Ananya

I did this before! But I really thought this because I didn't get homework. And I was at school! - funnyuser

Ha laugh out loud

This one is a 50/50 chance of passing. - Stalin

25 It's my birthday

This one actually works, but only if it's true. I knew this girl, and she completely forgot her homework, but it was her birthday, so the teachers just let the whole thing slide.

Doesn't work. I still get homework on my birthdays. WORST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!

26 You only told me to do it, not to bring it to school, so I left it at my house

LOL doing this
hope my english teacher is gullible

29 I felt earth's magnetic field so strongly last night that it constantly interfered with my brain activity
30 My backpack is missing
31 My computer crashed so I lost everything

The times this happened to me...thank heavens for Windows 7! - Entranced98

32 It was used in an experiment, but destroyed in the process

Science homework; perfect excuse.

33 It accidently became cat litter
34 My mother's sister's daughter's cousin's pig gave birth on it
35 Someone spit on it
36 I was very sick and I had to stay in bed


37 I lost it

This works too... - Ananya

38 My sister ate it
39 The homework said "name:" on the top. I gave it such a long name that it obscured the rest of the stuff on it.
40 I sang songs all afternoon
41 I dropped it in the toilet

What if she asks why you took it there? - Ananya

42 My mum got angry with me and threw it in the bin
43 It was abducted by aliens
44 My brother fed it to crocodiles
45 I got sick at the end of the day
46 The baby peed on it
47 It flew away
48 It fell in the gutter

Wow. It's nice, I'll use it! :P - Ananya

49 My younger brother burnt it with a magnifying glass.
50 When you gave the homework to the children, I went to the toilet. So I didn't know that there was homework
