Found this on siobhan curious: classroom as microcosm

All examples have been really given as excuses to teachers – including number seven:

7. A drug lord burned our house down.

Here are the top three:

3. My Ritalin stopped working. You really wouldn’t have wanted me to come to class.

2. I’ve never met my father. On Friday, I saw an obituary in the paper for my paternal grandfather’s funeral. I contacted my dad through the funeral home. Since then, my father’s entire extended family has been harassing me on Facebook demanding to meet me. I haven’t told my mother. I’m having a nervous breakdown.

1. I pulled my back reaching into the fridge for margarine.

See the whole list here.
