My dog really did eat my homework once when I was in elementary school! I had to bring the shredded up paper to school the next day!

My friend’s rabbit chewed up her homework once. It was pretty well shredded by the time he was done with it. I’m not sure if she ever told her teacher. I can only imagine what the teacher’s face would look like at that one though!

A (teething) puppy was camping on my mom’s deck.  She would bite/gnaw whatever she could get her paws on.  One day, it happened to be my brother’s homework that blew off of the table.  

We gathered all of the pieces, put them in an envelope, and sent them to my brother’s teacher, with a note explaining that yes, the dog ate the homework.  At least she sent another copy so he could complete the assignment.

@FloretteLiz:  yeah, bunnies and paper do not mix well.   I had my rabbit do the same thing…  but I bright in the shredded paper and had to re-do it. 

I find students/young workers today think an excuse will exempt them from doing work. As long as they can justify why it’s not done/their responsibility anymore; then they think they’re completelyabsolved of it.

@MissBoPeep:  The same thing happened to me in second grade!  I brought the shreds to school with a sticky note on them from my mom that said “the dog really did eat her homework”.  Haha!
