Best Excuse Yet

This semester I had a student offer me the following excuse for missing class:

He was very sorry, but he had been in a bar fight. He was hit over the head with a bottle and wound up in the hospital with a concussion.
I assume the story is true, since only someone who is concussed would think sharing this story with your professor was a good idea.


  1. I've had students miss class because they were in jail, or at their trials.

  2. Yesh...yes, at least it wasn't another one of those excuses where their grandmother has passed away. Too many grandmothers seem to pass away it seems to me.
