13 Excuse Emails You Send to Your Professor When You Miss Class

We all skip class and we all need a solid alibi to send our professors.

Saying that you are too tired to get up and go to class is a bad excuse and doesn't really fly so here are some that might. Just make sure that it isn't a test day.

The Classic "I'm Sick"

Giphy

A fever will make you seem like an unfocused student and they don't want that so fake a low grade fever and skip that boring bio lecture.

Doctor/Dentist Appointment

Giphy

Always a winner. You can't help that the only appointment they had open was during class but you NEED to go. Your health is 'very' important.

I have an interview

Giphy

It can be an interview for a job or an internship, you really don't need to elaborate but it is always a winner. It makes the teacher think that you are doing something productive instead of sitting around finishing your binge session on Netflix.

Organizational Commitment

Giphy

I give tours on campus so I have used this excuse a few times and all of my professors are okay with it since it is for the school. Extra points to you if it is for a school sponsored org.

"I have another meeting with another professor"

Giphy

They can't be mad if you have a professor who only comes to campus on Wednesdays and only has office hours during class. If you need to talk you need to talk.

"Sorry prof, I have jury duty"

Giphy

I wouldn't use this if your professor requires paperwork to prove an absence but if they don't and you want to get out of class for a few days, this is a sure winner.

An Accident

Giphy

A fender bender, a big accident, whatever just make sure your lie is small enough that they won't be looking for it on the 10 o'clock news.

Claim a BIG Illness

Giphy

Lice, chicken pox, food poisoning, anything big enough that makes them feel like begging you to stay home.

A Medical Test

Giphy

If you are in the education program, you need to have a TB every so often so use that as an excuse. If you aren't going to be a teacher, find another minor and relevant test that you can use on your teacher.

Traffic Jam

Giphy

With the exception of freshman (and any info that you've shared), your professor has no idea that you live on or off campus. There could have been some bad traffic and it isn't your fault that you got to campus right as class ended.

Family Emergency

Giphy

Sudden illness, death, there are endless possibilities.

Car Break In

Giphy

I know there are a lot of random break ins to cars at my school so using that as an excuse and saying that you have to deal with the police is always a safe bet.

A Mental Health Moment

Giphy

This can be a lie or a valid excuse but sometimes you just need a you day and telling them that you need a mental health break is a good excuse that they can't refute.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

2196

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.

The last few years of my life have been a rollercoaster. At this time three years ago, I received my first of many diagnoses: Crohn's disease. Then, not too long after that, I was told I had hypertension due to a condition I have called kidney dysplasia. Around February of the next year, I found out that I had developed Lupus as a result of the medicine I was on to treat my Crohn's disease.
