Creative Excuses For Not Doing Homework...I Don't Want To Blame The Dog!

If you aren't a genius or have good time management, you may end up cursing your teachers until a deadline forces you to get to work.

But, don't panic. Because you are not alone, 90 percent of the population are stuck along with you, looking for creative excuses for not doing homework. And there is need, there is market. A lot of ready-made excuses out there. Such as this one, the author lists 87 excuses which belongs to 11 categories.

The excuses related to computer, internet, or other technique failures maybe first choice for those people who are addicted to games or internet. Here in the Ferris Bueller wannabe's playbook, excuse No. 32, the author gives out serious technical failure as legitimate and semi-legitimate excuses, although a complete computer crash may be reasonable, and sometimes an email misunderstanding or printer error can serve as a temporary excuse, but unfortunately, as technology improves, this kind of excuses may lose its legitimate.

But, while the priest climbs a foot, the devil climbs ten. There are new technologies, and new excuses for you:

  • USB pen drive lost and weeks of work on it; not your CD or soft disk drive or even hard drive failure.
  • USB pen drive left in jean's pocket and was damaged in washing machine & tumble dryer.
  • I couldn't use the internet to research because my internet stopped working.

I think a good excuse is, saying in a very polite way (works best if you're a girl or a shy boy), that you were doing your homework at home on your table a day before it was due, and then you went to the toilet. But then your little sister started crying, wanting some paper to scribble on, and your parents got so annoyed that they (not realizing that it was your homework) gave her your homework and she ruined it with dribble and crayons.

Another excuse is that you thought it was a lollipop, and because it was made of paper, it melted and went all soggy in your mouth. One dude tried this at my school, and it actually worked because the teacher laughed and said: "Ha ha, fine then, but I expect both week's homework done by next lesson!"

Give it to a dog as a chew toy, and bring it to class as 'proof' your dog got to it.

Make fake puke- mix gravy powder, vegetables (like carrots, corn, anything green, etc.) with water. Put it in a bag to save for 'being sick' when you're at school or straight down the toilet at home, if you know your parents will believe you threw up. It's best to save your puke for a few days- keep telling your mom/dad you feel ill, then use the fake throw-up. THEN, it's foolproof. TIP: Make enough to keep the puking thing going for a while. If you throw up ONCE, your parents might think you're fine and send you to school anyway. Hide a sealable bag of it somewhere mom/dad won't see it, and use it when you think it's necessary. It depends on how long you want to stay out of doing homework.

You're Welcome!

HWHATER 5 years ago

i hate homework i mean who doesn't hate hw unless they are nerds or they are forced by parents.

Once we had an assessment which is a power point presentation and i handed in my assessment but i forgot my speech so i told her the truth. she gave me an extra day and i didn't do it as well so i told her the same story and guess what i got another day to do it. if it is a small problem then tell the truth. if it is big then you have to act smart. for some reason each time i didn't do my hw and i think of a reason something always pop out of my head and not only 1 reason but loads. so i choose the best one. i made loads of excuses and rarely got caught. i even lied to the year co-ordinater and i got away something really bug that could get me expelled. well if u want to get away then u must be smart and think fast. that's the best idea i can give u. hope u guys or girls really get away with detentions and stuff.

and rip up whatever email or note your teacher gave to your parents, either it's a letter that says I'm sincerely sorry about what happened or it's a letter to confirm it. This probably won't happen, because now that I'm grown up would you really write a letter that basically says ARE YOU DEAD?

@ Homework...go die, WOW !! are you from the U.S?? Because we have what is called the "C" system. This includes C1, C2 and the worst C3, theses are punishments for your bad behaviour, and lack of homework, and such, this means that you get House Points take off you if you don't had it in on time. So really you have it A LOT harder than we do, over here in the U.K.

I feel so, so sorry for you!!!

Voldemort 6 years ago

Usually, I tell my teachers I did it but left it at home. This usually gives you another day to do it. I also tell them I lost it or my sister hid it because I told my mum something that she didn't want me to tell her. Since I am usually a good student, they let me get away with it. You could also fake being sick so your mum and dad let you stay home, and you could do your homework in bed. If your teachers are nagging you for your homework, before they can realize you didn't do it, compliment them or tell them something that happened yesterday or something. But when you do this, you must ramble profusely or they will get to you. You can ask for a loo pass before they start asking for homework and stay there until after they finish checking homework. If all else fails, tell them you didn't do it and that Voldemort made you say the things you said, and that you have been forced to do what you did. Hope it helped! Now I gotta go kill Harry Potter. Bye!

We spend enough hours in lessons and we do what seems like a life sentence worth of going through the education system, so why do we want to bring it home with us to? all those hours wasted when it could be spent doing something fun (although probably not productive but at least it's fun) and if theres a chance i might die tomorrow, i'll wanna go knowing i haven't just wasted so many minutes/hours on some shitty assignment or essay but that i've actually just lived a little and had some fun, argh it just makes me angry, seriously teachers (or just one in particular) STOP GIVING ME F***ING HOMEWORK!!!!!!!!!!! ..... there rant over lol and as for excuses, i've used 'em all!

I hardly ever do my homework, I have science homework from this year that was due about four months ago, I got out of it by saying I had forgot it, then the next day, when she asked me and the others where it was I pretended to look for it, waited for everyone to give put it on her desk and she never even checked that I did it.. I also use excuses like I left it on my desk, after reading over the spelling and grammar (yes, I know it sounds lame but some teachers appreciate it..)also if it has to be printed you could say that you have a new laptop and just bought office for the subject especially, but it took so long to install you had a very short time to type it up and after completing it tried to print it and it failed/your USB drive was full. But keep it short and snappy - don't go on about how your dog was hungry and it couldn't see nothing to eat apart from the homework sheet lying helplessly on the floor, waiting to be eaten so it decided it would eat it. Just simply say "My Dog ate my homework" although, DON'T use that excuse.. been there done that..

Teacherknowsall 6 years ago

Students that use these excuses usually depend on excuses regularly, and the teacher labels the student a liar among the other teachers. Here is an excuse that students use frequently: "I left in my locker (student goes to his locker for it and returns empty handed). Oh, I thought it was there, so it must be at home." (or) "I left it in my locker, CAN (not MAY) I bring it to you after lunch?" (Student does the homework during lunch and brings it the teacher).

All I can say is "Wake up! Quit being a lazy liar. Your credibility has been destroyed, but you can earn it back without using stupid lies."

1) If its writing homework, write random words on paper, relating to the subject including and, it, also etc... and rub the paper into mud, enough so that its not very visible but you can still see the writing in parts..."miss, someone pushed me and i slipped, i managed to clean my clothes fairly well, but I thought wetting my paper, would make it worse...sorry :/

u could just say that i had a club on last night and didn't have time to do any homework, or you could say that you didn't think you had that lesson today, so you didn't do it. Or you just completely forgot about that subject, or you didn't write your homework down!!!!!! :D

3) ran out of toilet paper :)

4) your mum stuck your trousers in the wash with the homework in the pocket

5) your bag fell apart, so you had to buy a new one, but all the rubish in your bad (includeing the homework) was thrown in the bin

6) it blew out your hands; never to be seen again

7) it fell into the lawn mower

8) cant find it anymore

9) we had homework?

10) i had to go see my nan, took my homework with me to do it, but left it there

11) don't go to school on the day that its due in

12) your sister scribbled all over it

13) your sister ate it :L

14) your house got broke into and my homework was in the draw that they stole

15) OR, you can try the excuse that i always use, and it works a treat: You Couldent be assed to do it.....its the truth, but at least you don't get a detention

Here's a CLASSIC.

2 ways of doing this.

1. Ask to go to the toilet when he/she's handing it out, and if she/he doesn't realize, say you didn't get it OR

when he/she's handing them out, quickly sneak it into the bin and say you didn't get one. Works like a charm. My teacher did it once (she didn't have enough copies) she kept saying she would bring some more in the next day but she kept forgetting. It was cool.

what i do is that if your teacher is a bit "unstrict"

what i do is:

1.While she/he is collecting the homework "if he/she goes around the class to collect homework"

go and get your book when the teacher comes to your desk and 50% of the time they forget.

2. say you forgot it at home and will bring it in tomorrow.

3.pretend to look for it everywhere and tell him/her you'll try to look for it at home/redo it.

works 30% of the time.

4.if it is an essay, write 4-5 lines and rip the rest.

say that it got ripped on the way to school and [insert excuse here]

, My school sucks!

Seriously, don't try any of these excuses, they don't work.

The technical failure one is just a fail, seriously, the school teacher would've just asked you why you didn't use the school computers to re-do it then.

Plus some of the written work you need to submit in, if I did say anything (which I didn't but some guys in my class did) said that he had it on his USB but the teacher was like, "I don't give an ape shit, it was due in today, I need it." Unless your teacher is retarded don't try these.

The worst excuse i heard was that it wouldn't fit in my bag!!!

im hungry 7 years ago

two useful ideas:

1) A film producer dropped by last night and asked if she could use my homework to star in the latest hollywood blockbuster. She took it with her and it won't be done filming until next year.

2) My house got burned down and i've had to come to terms i will never see my homework again. I'll be mentally scarred for life.

i guarantee your teacher will not buy any of these but it's well worth a try :)

We got a new paper shredder, and we had to see if it worked or not, there was a return policy only for one day, and was the most useless paper I could get my hands on.

If its on the computer change a .jpg picture to a .doc document. It comes up with weird symbols, giving you time to finish the homework the next day.

i.d man 7 years ago

what if its an art homework and its a drawing homoework, what do u do then?and no, people who looks for excuses are actaully smart as they have better things to do in life rather then do crap of homework.....and we go over the homework in class 99% of the time so i don't really see the point of it

Kenny 7 years ago

I just say that I didn't do it because I didn't think it was important, and I don't care about my future, and the only reason I even attend school is because the government makes me.

I usually get in trouble, but hey, at least I didn't have to do the homework.

Evangeline 7 years ago

'My brother ate it' that's stupid. This person in my class tried that once. He got sent to his brother's class, he had to bring his brother. The teacher asked 'Did you eat your brother's homework?' to the little brother. L.B looks shocked and says 'He never even does his homework' class started staring at B.Brother and then he gets detention.

Um... The best excuse is that you really had to go to the bathroom but someone was in there so you accidentally peed all over your homework.

nicholeo 7 years ago

jim.sheng 7 years ago from UK Author

If you can tell the truth, I think you must be a good student, and don't need any creative excuse.

Kasia 7 years ago

You could also say, THE TRUTH!!! That way, if the teacher calls you mum or dad from a note, you don't have to get in trouble. The truth mdears!

Sophie 8 years ago

Wite a fake note from your mom/dad saying that you were ill and couldn't do the homework.
