Teachers do the lord's work.
Between being underpaid and overworked, fostering the next generation and instilling not only the curriculum but also a foundation for healthy adulthood into the minds of students, they deserve a laugh every now and then. While they're bound to hear an insane series of excuses when students forget their homework, a recent Reddit thread asked users, "Teachers of Reddit, what was the best lateness excuse, you ever heard?" and the answers got pretty wild.
As a high school student that was late so many times to school I received a warning that I was at risk for not graduating due to attendance, the plight of the late student is often overlooked. Remember waking up at 6 AM every day to sit for six hours at a desk? Brutal.
