The Homework Blues


For many families, the kids are now back in school. This means, of course, that there will be homework to do. You do realize what that brings about, don’t you? Right – excuses for not doing homework!

I have compiled a list of excuses that I thought were the best. Have you heard these before? What unique or funny exuses have you heard?

Here is my list, in no particular order:


My dog ate my homework.
– Note: this one is required on any such list!

I left it at home by accident.

I left it in my desk and didn’t take it home.

I left my homework on the bus.

My little brother/sister drew all over it/destroyed it.

I left it in my shirt and my mother put the shirt in the wash.

My homework flew out the window of the bus.

I left my bag on a bench and it got stolen.

My computer got a virus/crashed.

I let somebody copy it and they never gave it back.

My pen ran out of ink.

I have a solar-powered calculator and it was cloudy.

I left it at Mom’s house when she took me back to Dad’s house.

My printer broke.

I had better things to do.
