Homework is a pain for students. Many youngsters do not like to complete their tasks. They make up excuses which are sometimes preposterous. Here are the top 10 reasons for not doing homework. Raise your hand if you recognize one or two. Don’t be shy we are culpable of at least one.
1. My dog ate my homework (Excuse):
This is a classic excuse students use to get away with incomplete assignments. Bart Simpson popularized this term with his laziness. Usually this phrase means that the student has no care for his/her work.
Teachers have heard these excuses plenty of times. From having a belly ache to their hands hurting to even getting a headache. Students will make up anything just to get out of doing homework.
3. Computer broke:
This one time I had students lined up at my door because the internet and printer were not working. They thus could not hand in their assignment/homework to me. At that point I utilize a USB key.
Take out a handkerchief because sometimes this excuse is a lie students tell. Universities and even schools now require a professional note to accompany this reason.
5. Book left at school:
This is another popular reason for not completing tasks and homework assignments. Many students sometimes leave their belongings at school. Teachers are now being cleverer. They partner students with others. If something is misplaced, they can call someone from the same class and share. No EXCUSES!
