Homework Excuses That Work

Teens hate doing homework and will say almost anything to get out of it.  The only problem is that sometimes the excuse is legitimate.  We interviewed a high school teacher to find out the four most common excuses for teens not doing their homework.  We also asked him whether or not these excuses were acceptable and the logic behind that decision making process.


4) "Sorry teach, apparently my brother is a werewolf and he ate my homework."


werewolf teen wolf
can teens ACTUALLY be where wools
What is your reaction to this excuse?
Professor Gulliville - "Most teens will use this excuse even when it isn't the day after a full moon.  I don't know if they think I'm an idiot, but come on everyone knows that.  Also, we ask our students to please submit any family history of lycanthropy or vampirism."
Acceptable or Unacceptable?
Professor Gulliville - "Unacceptable."

3) "I was a little busy barricading my house from zombies last night to do the math problems."


call of duty zombies
when zombs are nazis too smh
What is your reaction to this excuse?
Professor Gulliville - "My first reaction is to judge the seriousness of the child's expression.  If they are talking about a video game I will FAIL them immediately.  Video game playing turns kids into zombies!  If they look serious I have to understand that there is a very real chance of zombies rising up from the ground or a nasty virus turning us into zombie esque versions of ourselves that feast on the human race and some teens HAVE to look out for their families."
Acceptable or Unacceptable?
Professor Gulliville - "Acceptable sometimes."

2) "My printer is haunted."


What is your reaction to this excuse?
Professor Gulliville - "While ghosts are known to haunt inanimate objects sometimes, especially electronical objects, come on it's 2013.  Ghosts are known to be trend setters and would definitely inhabit an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy before a friggin' printer!"
Acceptable or Unacceptable?
Professor Gulliville - "Completely Unacceptable."


1) "I forgot because aliens abducted me last night and erased my memory, obviously erasing the memory of the homework assignment wasn't their first priority but it was a consequence of the brain tampering procedure."
alien peace
we come in peace lol
What is your reaction to this excuse?
Professor Gulliville - "The logic is very impressive.  Of course aliens would erase your memory after they abduct you to hide their existense.  I'm assuming his mom or significant other told him of his abduction and the rest was logically derrived."
Acceptable or Unacceptable?
Professor Gulliville - "Acceptable."
