    That's a really poor poll.
    I have managed to avoid every PE lesson this year and am damn proud of it.
    I have had "doctor's appointments" on 4 consecutive Wednesdays

    Atm, i've given up on excuses and just don't turn up the lesson. I go to the study room instead (it's not as geeky as it sounds... I've built up a sort of club of fellow 'lazy bunkers') and we just generally mess about.

    Before though, i once pretended to have a broken arm. It was seriously the mother of all excuses as it meant i missed PE for the whole term. :eek:

    The one excuse that worked ALL the time, no matter what sport we were doing:

    "I'm fasting..."

    With a parental note, NO teacher would or could dare question that.

    Fantastic!

    Ok heres mine:

    1) Get parents to write note
    2) cut off date
    3) photocopy note
    4) forging note (harder!)
    5) "forgetting" kit
    6) Pretending to go to a exam when I didn't even do the subject
    7) convinced teacher I had a massive coursework project
    8) got art teacher to write me a note
    9) hid kit somewhere around school, say I thought someone had taken it, spend 45minutes *looking* for it, pick it up at the end of the day.
    10) joining YAA for the sole purpose of getting out pe for 1 lesson a week. half way through convinced teacher we were allowed to do both lessons for another year before anyone twigged
    11) *period pains* (no ones going to ask for details!)
    12) To top it all, I was a right geek so no-one suspected a thing!

    I like P.E so i never actually tried getting out of it.

    In my form class in secondary school most people didnt like P.E and always tried to get out of it, they used to write a fake note in their planner saying that they are ill with their parents' fake signature and it worked all the time.

    It got to the extent that 25 people in my form class had fake notes about how they are ill and unable to do P.E. It was hilarious, the P.E teacher got so pissed she got the head of year to shout at all of us.

    I have ligament damage to my right foot and can't run far because of the pain it causes, so that got me out of track athletics and cross country. Music lessons was another great excuse while I was playing, though when I stopped in year 10 that cut short my excuses repertoire. I enjoyed things like badminton and javelin and stuff so I didn't bother skipping those... It all depended on the type of PE we did.

    I rarely managed to get out of rounders, unfortunately :sad:

    I just had a note from my rents saying I hurt me knee.

    The last 2 years I always did it unless I had a genuine reason though. Got to choose what we wanted to do so I enjoyed it.
