The Worst Excuse...

...that I ever heard for an absence occurred late yesterday afternoon.

"Why weren't you in school yesterday, Carlos?"

"I left my metrocard and my wallet at home, Mr. Educator."

"And where were you, Carlos?"

"I had to stay home," he said. I had to process this for a moment.

"So, Carlos, are you going to sleep in the classroom tonight?"

"Why should I do that?"

"Well, your metrocard and your wallet are here, aren't they? Since you have to stay wherever they are, you're gonna be staying here tonight, I guess. Please try not to make too much of a mess."

What's the worst excuse you ever heard?
