What's the best but worst excuse you've been given...

    I'm compiling a list of ridiculous excuses that have been given to teachers from students or parents, could be for anything i.e. lateness, no homework, bullying... you get the point. If I get enough good ones I might turn them into a book. Please give any relevant details.

    The best I've had so far was from a year 10 who walked into the classroom and without even being asked said "Sorry I'm late sir, I had to kidnap someone and it took the ****"

    I could see the 2 girls dancing the Moon walk, in the toilets, in front of the mirror - one came back. I didn't have to ask - I did say I saw her dancing....she just said sorry and got to work. Other girl, went back to the toilet...singing 'I'm bad, really bad..'

    20 mins later, she returns, wide eyed and knows there's trouble! Class looked, silent., knew there would be trouble...

    'Nicola, what were you doing, in the toilet all this time?

    'A very long poo...?'

    The whole class laughed, not a straight face nor dry eye in the room - she saw the funny side and laughed so hard kids, fell to the ground and rolled around on the carpet, feet in the air, like Peppa Pig!
