Excuses for Missing School

Excuses for Missing School That Everyone Needs

You need good excuses for missing school. Let’s face it, these are your teachers; they taught you everything you know. Not only that, they’ve been doing it forever so they’ve heard every excuse in the book. Well, almost. They haven’t heard these excuses. Maybe they’ll land you a better grade in English class.

     had to build a cage for the hamster.

20. One of my old girl friends called and said I made her

     I should at least go see who she is. Of course that developed

     into more than I thought it would, so……you can guess

     what happened next.

How to use these excuses for best effect.

Obviously these excuses are designed to be used after the fact. Choose an excuse that strikes your fancy and rehearse it a bit before you deliver it. Remember that the first rule of good excuse delivery is to look your recipient directly in the eyes during delivery. It also helps not to smile or laugh out loud while saying your excuse and this is where a little rehearsing will help your excuses for missing school sound plausible.
