    Very funny, Sticky :lol: Thanks for posting them.

    They reminded me of some of the funny notes I often used to receive when I was teaching, but I always rather liked the honest ones eg. ''Billy couldn't come to school yesterday because I went shopping and needed him to carry the bags.'' or ''Sorry, we got up late and were too tired to get dressed''.

    These made me laugh too:

    1. Excuse me for not doing my homework, its cause you ASKED me to do it, you didn't TELL me to do it so I thought it was optional.

    2. I was late to class because it was foggy this morning and I couldn't find my way to school.

    3. While I was walking to school, my shoes fell apart. I went back home to see if I had any more. I didn't and my mom wouldn't let me leave the house without any shoes.

    4. Can Joe please be excused from completing his religious studies homework? He thought it did not apply to him as he has sold his soul to the devil.

    5. Here's an excuse that only someone who ran out of excuses would use:

    My son could not attend school yesterday because he is grounded to his room for not taking out the trash for a month. Not only this, but the trash has piled so high that I cannot get out of my back door. (Student Name) will be able to attend school again as soon as he cleans up the trash and serves his punishment. Expect to see him back in school within a month of the date of this note. Thank You.
