My Dog Ate My Pencil

Stephanie

In this case, it’s apparently true.

What is the most creative excuse you’ve ever heard or given for not handing in homework on time?

I’m not a very good liar, so I think back in the day I would just stare at the floor and mumble when the teacher came around to collect our papers. I probably wished that I had a dog to eat my pencil.

  1. I can’t say I ever had a dog eat my pencil or homework, but my mother’s poodle did leave tooth marks in a journal of mine back in 2000 when he was a puppy. I wasn’t mad – it just gives it character. I don’t think I ever got creative with excuses for not doing my homework because I always did it- the one time I was accused of not doing it was when my crazy 11th grade math teacher counted it as not done if we worked a problem to a certain point and couldn’t finish it. After that, my mother told me to make sure I had something written in even if it was off the wall so I’d get credit for it.
