Thursday Thirteen (16th)

13 Absence Notes and Letters collected from schools.

1. My son is under a doctor's care and should not take P.E. 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 being absent on Jan. 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, and also 33.

4. Please excuse Roland from P.E. for a few days. Yesterday he fell out of a tree and misplaced his hip.

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

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

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

8. Please excuse Jason for being absent yesterday. He had a cold and could not breed well.

9. Please excuse Ray Friday from school. He has very loose vowels.

10. Please excuse Pedro from being absent yesterday. He had diahre dyrea direathe the shits.

11. Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday.

Ah, great visit outlining the power of words - or poorly written phrases.

Oh, that's a scream. Don't you know sometimes teachers just laugh until they cry over some of these excuses?

Happy TT!

Now, I can see the Sunday paper excuse as being real - at least for me.

Those are almost as bad as the stuff I get from other lawyers!

It does amaze me at some of the excused we get also. I really like the ones the kids write and "someone" signs.

Our middle school kids come up with some very original excuses.

Happy TT

Very funny list! Looks like some of the parents may have missed a few too many days of school also. I better use spell check on the notes I write for my son. Don't want to end up on your list some day:)

Hehe...I laughed especially at 2, 6 and 13. Spelling really makes a difference, doesn't it?

Thanks for visiting my 13!

Hee. Lots of parents pretty darn stressed out by their kids staying home--executing, shooting, planning funerals...

Funny! One would be tempted to say the kids wrote these, but we all know there are clueless parents, too.

Oh My God!
This is hilarious! (and I’m always so preoccupied with my spellings since English is not my mother tongue)
My sister in law is a teacher and I love listen her experience with excuses!

Hilarious list, thanks for sharing!

I think we should at least be grateful that the parents are sending their children to school (sometimes) - if we had to rely on them to teach writing skills, the world would be in trouble.

I double checked my spelling and word order! Now watch there be a mistake. *blush*

I am very angry with myself that I missed you yesterday and commented instead on different health and school troubles. BTW this could have been written by me as a parent when I started English ! Maybe it's not yet better now, you must know it !
The funniest thing is we have a list like that in french !
A little different of course but with the same target
