Excuses. We've all got them and we've all used them. Today we are talking about those "tardy to class" excuses. Reddit user u/minecraftplayer48 asked teachers to share the best excuses students used for being late that ended up being true. Turns out all kinds of people had stories. Here are some of the best ones...
1. "Student told me he got pulled over by the cops for wobbly driving on his bike and they thought he was drunk. Turned out he was just dodging all the slugs on the street."
2. "When I was student teaching, I was late because there were a bunch of chickens in the middle of the road. They wouldn't move at all. This is in the middle of a city of 200,000 people. Freaking chickens."
"I finally get to school and profusely apologize to my mentor teacher and I told her why I was late thinking it sounded ridiculous. She said, 'Yeah, those chickens are fucking assholes. They surrounded my car in the McDonald's parking lot last year. Don't worry about it."
