As technology gets better, so does our BS meter. But even if it’s harder to make up excuses, it’s also easier to actually just get stuff done – especially group projects.

15. "I forgot to attach my updated version."

"Forgetting" to attach your updated version of the paper is so not an issue anymore. Office and SkyDrive let you work on 1 version of your document with your whole group, simultaneously online. A group project needs to get done sooner or later, so maybe it's a good thing we can't make this excuse anymore. College students: Get 3 months of Office 365 free and an extra 20GB of SkyDrive storage.
