I always say the bus didnt come - even though I live 10 mins walk from the school and people in my form see me at 8:15 outside the shops opposite my school asking people to get my ****. Works every time

I was once an hour late to my lesson because I forgot the clocks went forward and the clocks in my house hadn't been changed. I didn't realise until I got in the classroom and my teacher didn't believe me when I told her

I always use the bus didn't turn up excuse, even though I hardly ever get the bus in.

Sadly, I'm rarely late.

Once turned up 37 minutes late to a 40-minute lesson. Teacher didn't even ask.

Well this wasn't mine, but I saw a copy of the late slip in last years yearbook:

Reason for being late:
----------------------
Saw a homeless person on the way to school and felt sorry for him so went to johnnys cafe to buy him breakfast.



hahahahaha wish I'd come up with that!

I always say "had a music lesson" - they just hear the word music and go "okay then". My English teacher doesn't care when we come in though (or if we come in). Bless her.

Or in the morning I use the "bus was late" one. :rolleyes: Unoriginal, yes.

Sadly Im hardly late as well.... but then I go boarding school so it doesn't really work....

Excuses I've heard though....
'I got lost through the numerous corridors in this school!'
'Had to collect my books miss from my room in the other side of the school'
'I couldn't find anything to wear..' *we wear our own clothes*


All time favorite though:

'I don't know why I'm late..!'

Me: "My Dad choked on a meatball and I had to dislodge it"
Teacher: "He was eating meatballs for breakfast? Thats highly unlikely!"
Me: "You don't know my Dad's dietary habits"
Teacher: "Okay - You get marked late anyway!"
Me: "Thats hardly fair when I was trying to save a person's life!"
Teacher: "Stop being insolent and get to your lesson"

:rofl: I never got punished in the end :rolleyes:

My mate Josh was late back after break once. His response when the teacher asked him why he was late was "Just finishing my fag."
Rebecca (teacher) went wild...good job he was seventeen at the time or she would've got the cops!

I've used the 'dunno' one but it was true. I got up at the normal time, took the same time to get dressed as normal and walked at the same speed and got to school 15 mins late. I still don't know why.

I also said that there was an accident because the whole of the town was full of traffic and everybody was having to turn back on the main road because there was a lorry across the road and there was me, my brother and one other girl were late and noone believed us.

Theres a teacher at our school called Mr Buss and his form all say thyre late because they missed the buss.
