Ms Lindemann’s homework excuses page

Ms L 

Have you ever forgotten to do your homework? What excuse did you make? Did you say you forgot it, or that you brought the wrong book? Or did you claim that your Mum threw your homework away or that your little brother stole it? Some excuses are just terrible!

These are some of my favourites. I can’t say I believed any of them, but they made me laugh.

Got an original excuse of your own? Tell us about it in the comments.


  1. I ate too much pi and was sick all over my homework.
  2. I was attacked by a pack of pan-dimensional homework-eating dogs.
  3. I left it inside a Klein bottle
  4. I have a proof that I’ve done my homework, but there wasn’t space to write it in the margin.
  5. I divided by zero and my calculator blew up.
  6. It was too cloudy for my solar-powered calculator to work.
  7. I tried to do my homework, but I could only get arbitrarily close to my book. I never quite reached it.
  8. I got the answer 42 for every question, which left me lost in Deep Thought.
  9. I did half of my homework, then a quarter of it, then an eighth, then a sixteenth – but I just can’t seem to get it finished.
  10. i was going to do my homework, but then i realised that i is imaginary.
