Funny REAL excuses for not doing homework

Here are some of the more inventive excuses teachers have received over the years.


  • My child’s locker is jammed and she can't get her homework out of it.
  • I couldn’t do my homework because my bedroom is haunted.
  • Jimmy doesn't have his homework because we got a new paper shredder. I was so excited to try it out, I accidentally
  • shredded Jimmy’s homework.
  • My Dad forgot to do it for me.
  • On the way to school, my homework slipped out of my hands and blew away. That’s also why I am late for school,
  • I was chasing my homework.
  • Please excuse Ashley for not getting her homework done. The hour she puts aside to do homework every week was lost when the clocks sprung forward over the weekend.
  • One of my classmates fell in the lake. Unfortunately, when I jumped in to rescue him, my homework drowned.
  • I found one of the word problems in Charlene’s textbook offensive. I don’t intend to support the publisher of that textbook by allowing Charlene to do any more of its problems.
  • I was in the lunch room and another student started criticizing you. I just couldn't let that go, so I reached into my backpack for something to throw at him. All I could find was today's homework assignment, so I let him have it.
