Excuses...I've Got 13 Excuses!

Here are 13 excuse notes teachers have received from parents….believe it or not. The spelling and wording are exact from the notes themselves.

1. My son is under a doctors care and should not take PE today. Please execute him.

2. Please excuse Lisa for being absent. She was sick and I had her shot.

3. Dear School: Please ekscuse John from being absent on Jan. 28, 29, 30, 31, 31, and also 33.

4. Please excuse Gloria from Jim today. She is administrating.

5. Please excuse Roland from PE for a few days. Yesterday he fell out of a tree and misplaced his hip.

6. John has been absent because he had two teeth taken out of his face.

7. Carlos was absent yesterday because he was playing football. He was hurt in the growing part.

8. Megan could not come to school today because she has been bothered by very close veins.

These are hilarious!

Liz said...

Oh goodness. #11 takes the cake. Happy TT!

Marsha said...

Thanks you made my day. My favorite was loose vowels.

MamaArcher said...

Unbelievable! Makes you wonder if the children wrote those, if not the parents should be required to go to school with their children! LOL

EHT said...

Loose vowels? I wonder how their dipthongs were doing.... :)

Sniz said...

Wow, these are so funny. I'm glad I visited your TT! But it is a sad commentary on adults. We focus so much on the kids' education, but once they graduate, we don't think about education anymore. What I'm saying is that if a student wrote this way, they would be corrected and taught better, but once you are an adult, no one does that. Does that make sense?

Denise Patrick said...

Way too funny, but sad, too. Let's hope the kids are getting a better education than their parents obviously got!

Happy TT!

I wonder how many of those notes were written by children who'd been skipping school to watch Nick-TV.

My TT is at Buck Naked Politics

Absolutely loved it! I hope Roland found his hip.

Oh my gawd! I think some of these parents need to go back to school themselves! Or at least give them a book on grammar and a dictionary. Lol!
