Fortunately, he hasn’t had any Duke students miss work due to jail time.
Gerald Wilson, an academic dean in Trinity College, typically asks students who arrive to class late to explain their tardiness.
I think homework should be banned.” Maybe, somewhere in our world this would work out well.
At least, you can try if you really don’t bother what will be the result. Maybe you generally like to study and even enjoy doing some of the tasks, yet this time just didn’t want to do homework? So how to justify yourself before the teacher if you were for some reason unable to do homework? If at every class you have no homework, even the most naive teacher won’t believe you. Be creative, turn on your fantasy, like this guy did.
However, a select few are gross, outlandish or embarrassing enough to really stick with professors.
Connel Fullenkamp, professor of the practice of economics, wrote that he’s had some students cite their court dates as reasons for missing homework.However, this excuse that someone told Karen Murphy, lecturer of psychology and neuroscience, can happen to any Duke student who’s having a little too much fun—one student told her that they were in the hospital because they broke their ankle falling out of the cage at Shooters II.We are all aware that students are very busy people having little time to spare, even less for doing boring homework tasks. The only way out is to come up with a plausible excuse and spare yourself of performing homework or at least postpone it until better times.Most didn’t reply or couldn’t think of any good excuses.Professor of Sociology Jen’nan Read wrote that throughout her many years of teaching, she has heard some “incredulous” excuses, but no single one stands out.Back in the 1990s, The Chronicle held an annual competition in which professors could submit the craziest homework excuse they had heard.In 2018, The Chronicle decided to ask more than 20 professors their favorite excuse for missing a homework or exam that they had heard in their years of teaching.Of course, if you don’t care, make yourself comfortable in the last row and turn the music louder.Or, you come up with a question to your teacher, like “should students have homework?What makes for a good excuse for not having your homework done on time?Once upon a time, "the dog ate my homework" might have worked.
