Anyone used any particularly fool proof ones? Or ridiculous ones...? How gullible are your teachers/tutors?

Usually it's just I need a lil' bit more time to make it even better than it already is. Works a charm and they will never know the thought of doing it hadn't even crossed my mind until I remembered we had homework when I get to school!

I actually had my dog chew up my homework once...my teacher didn't believe me until I showed her the mangled exercise book with dog pawprints and teethmarks, and then couldn't stop laughing for the rest of the class.

I've turned over a new leaf in life and no longer believe in pens, paper and computers. They are the new sins of our time.

foolproof method from my school days

i had a usb flash disk that somehow messed up, o everytime i hadn't done my work i used to take it to school and then pretend the disk had just messed up, so they couldn't see the work...the brilliant thing with this is i managed to pull it off with the same teacher abt 5/6 times within one year without her realsing what was going on

At school i was a goody goody and could have got away with saying anything really

Printer died/internet died.

I also recall hearing someone say to the teacher that as they were cycling to college they hit deer resulting in their file dropping on the road where a car ran over it. It worked as well.

My dog once ate my homework diary, he took a chunk out the cover!

I once told my teacher "I did my homework in my head, I didn't realise we were supposed to write it down.' and got sent out for being cheeky. Thing was, I was being serious! I honestly didn't realise she wanted us to write down a sentence!

lol yeah I like the 'already gave it to u' one.
-ones that I tend to use are: (not necessarily believable or good ones)

-"Really?"
-"Wait a sec, It's in my locker... *runs out room. Screeches off in car. Soars off in aeroplane*
-"Oh god yeah the work... yea haven't done it."
-"That's really annoying, I put it in my bag... someone must've stolen it!" (as they do)
-"Omg.. I just realised how sunny it is" *changes subject*
-"We had work for today? YOU LIER!!"

I used that one this morning about Maths coursework, the thing is I had actually given it in about a month ago and my teacher appears to have lost it.

We once made a powerpoint presentation on the tudors with each slide full of wingdings text with the odd picture of henry viii, and told our hugely computer-illiterate old history teacher that the file must have corrupted... did this 2 lessons in a row, never had to do the presentation

The new classic is: "Oh, sorry - I was un-able to print it off as it was Word 2007." Haha.

I also used to bring 'work' in on floppy discs to print out in the lesson knowing full well that none of the computers in the school have floppy disc drives!
