Dear Teacher,

I regret that a family tragedy will prevent me from completing the writing assignment on time.

My heart is heavy as I type this but, well, I might as well blurt it out... Granny died again.

You may remember Granny dying earlier in the semester.  Out of respect for your busy schedule, I didn’t bother you with the drama of her miraculous resuscitation and recovery.  Sadly, it appears there is no hope this time.  We’re pretty sure that she’s all-the-way dead.

If her status changes, I’ll let you know.  But, for now, I’ve got to help Mama with the arrangements again.  You will get my completed paper shortly after Granny's funeral or reanimation, whichever comes first.

Sorrowfully,

Dear Teacher,

Because of my cousin, my research paper will be late.

I didn’t even know there WAS such a thing as a black market for research papers - but my cousin did.  He stole my paper and sold it for beer money.  That’s right... beer money.

I was at his house yesterday and he tossed me a brewski saying, “Here. You earned it, Cuz!”  I thought he meant that I’d earned the beer by putting up with his drunken craziness over the years.   After the 12 pack was gone, he started crying and confessed to buying the beer with my research paper.

Please allow me to turn in the paper after the due date.  This won’t happen again.  I have severed all ties with him, having learned that he was lying about being my cousin.

Dear Teacher,

OMG!  My paper is, like, due and I’m not ready to turn it in!

I met this cute guy on Friday night and we seemed to hit it off.  He was really into me, you know?  He was laughing at everything I said and I could tell that he really got me.

He hasn’t called.

I know he’s got the right number because I’ve texted it to him 23 times.  I’ve had girlfriends call me just to make sure my phone is working.  It is.  I mean, it was this morning.  OMG!  Something might have happened to it since then!

I’ll get you that research paper as soon as I get my phone fixed.

You’re the best!

Dear Teacher,

I have an issue that I must bring to your attention.  The research paper that I wrote for your class was accidentally used by my roommate for the burial of his beloved Cockatoo, “Mr. Crackers”.

Mr. Crackers had been ill for quite some time. While my roommate was hopeful that he would recover and resume his adorable squawking, cursing, pooping, and finger-biting... it wasn’t meant to be.  Mr. Crackers died while I was at school yesterday.

My roommate, overcome with grief, buried Mr. Crackers while I was away.  He used my completed research paper as a burial shroud, wrapping the carcass in what was the only copy of my paper.

I will redo the assignment and get it to you as quickly as possible.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Dear Teacher,

My paper is going to be late due to the malfunction of my glue gun.

I was working on a craft project with my son while typing my paper, multitasking between my laptop and gluing his macaroni sculpture.  My glue gun was leaking and I accidentally dripped hot glue onto the keys of my laptop without realizing it.  I decided to close my laptop and finish the paper assignment after I had completed the macaroni project with my son.

You can imagine my horror later that night when I discovered that I was unable to open my laptop.  It had been glued shut!  

My paper will be a few days late, as I am waiting to see if the Apple technician can successfully dislodge the glue and open the laptop so that I can retrieve my paper.

Thank you,

Dear Teacher,

I’m sorry, but I’m going to be late turning in my paper.  I’ve become obsessed with a hobby and it’s used up all of my spare time.

Recently, I overheard someone talking about how much fun their dad was having with Ham Radio.  It sounded interesting so I bought a ham and have been struggling to get it to transmit.  I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but I’m not the type to quickly give up on something once I set my mind to it.

No matter what, I’ll wrap this up by the end of the day and will get my paper to you shortly thereafter.

Dear Teacher,

You know I like to dabble in physics.  Oh, maybe I never mentioned that.  Anyway, I recently built a particle accelerator in my basement using PVC pipe, beer cans, and duct tape.

As I was testing it, a Black Hole formed and started sucking everything into it.  Just as it began to swallow my desk, I was able to grab my recently completed assignment from the printer.  The Back Hole took everything from the room.  All that was left was me hugging a structural beam while clutching my most excellent paper.  With nothing else to lose, I let go of the paper, hoping that the energy that I put into writing the paper would be strong enough to snuff out the Black Hole.

It worked!  The Black Hole collapsed and disappeared, leaving me safe in my now empty basement.  I’m typing this on a borrowed laptop and will retype my paper ASAP.

Dear Teacher,

I was hard at work on my research paper when I realized that my farm on Farmville was falling into disarray. Many people in my community of farmers needed me to send gifts to complete their storage sheds, my crops were in need of harvesting, and I had to entice some gophers with treats in order to capture them.

Furthermore, I had to brush and care for all my livestock and pets, visit my other four farms in the travels, and share every single point of mastery for each of the aforementioned duties. By the time I completed these tasks, the cycle had started all over again and more people had joined my community. I feel I have a civic duty to maintain my virtual world and to assist all my virtual neighbors.

I only hope you can understand my difficult situation and show leniency when I turn in my late paper.

Dear Teacher,

I just wanted to give you a quick heads-up on the fact that I will not be able to turn in my paper today.

You may not know that I like to do a little cancer research at home in my spare time.  I feel that I am, quite possibly, on the verge of making a breakthrough in finding the cure for cancer!  I just need a little more time to work on my latest computer model before I’ll know for sure.

By allowing me to turn in a late paper, you may very well be helping to save millions of lives and I salute you for your contribution.  I will be certain to mention you in my Nobel Prize acceptance speech.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

Maybe you’ve heard of people who are Civil War Re-enactors.  That’s what I do from time to time when I want to get away from it all.  I play a Union soldier and we take great pride in the authenticity of our garments and weaponry, as you may know.

In our recent re-enactment, when the Confederates broke through our ranks, one of their infantrymen spotted the laptop that I had brought with me - just in case I found any spare time to work on my paper.  He took offense to me having a high-tech device on the battlefield and destroyed it on-sight!  I was angry but there was nothing I could do.  He had just fired a .69 caliber round ball through the hard drive.

I’ll get you that paper as soon as possible.

Dear Teacher,

There comes a time when one must make a difficult choice.  Today is such an occasion.

You should know that I respect the great effort you put into teaching.  Your writing assignments are, no doubt, an important element of my well-rounded education.  However, I will be late in submitting my paper due to my long-standing commitment to save the Narwhals.  

Over the next few days, I will be in Greenland hand-feeding baby narwhals.  The long hours of travel should afford me enough time to complete my paper during transit.  I thank you in advance for your patience as I work to ensure that future generations are able to enjoy these delightful “unicorns of the sea.”

Dear Teacher,

My paper will be late due to my volunteer work with the Belts For Saggers(tm) organization.

Each year at this time, BFS volunteers go door-to-door collecting used belts.  We then hit the streets, offering free belts to young men who are unaware that their trousers are in danger of falling down.

The work can be frustrating but the few who accept our belts make this difficult task worthwhile.

I will provide my overdue paper soon...

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

Please be aware that I will be delayed in getting my paper to you due to my involvement with the Bluetooth Headset Reduction Society.

If you’re unfamiliar with the group, our goal is to educate men on the negative social aspects of bluetooth headset use.  These men, suffering with an unwarranted sense of self-importance, do not realize how they are perceived by others.  

Our tactic is to follow them while carrying on bizarre and loud conversations with imaginary people, thereby mirroring their behavior.  In 1 out of 3 cases, the man will gain increased awareness and will remove his headset while in a public setting.  Sadly, in 2 out of 3 cases, the man smiles and nods, accepting us into his fraternity, unaware that we are not wearing a headset.

I will provide my paper to you as soon as I can.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

My paper will be late because of my volunteer work with the Internet Troll Reformation League.

At the ITRL, we scour the internet looking for ne’er-do-wells who are hell-bent on provoking people with their inflammatory posts.  Once a troll has been discovered, we engage him and present him with a reasonable and logical opposing argument.  Our hope is to expose him to a higher, more civil form of communication.  This never works.  At that point, Plan B is to sign him up to as many erectile-dysfunction, mortgage refinancing, and political fundraising email lists as we can.

I’ll have the paper to you within another day or so.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

Don’t you hate it when you see someone wearing socks with sandals?

Me, too.  And that’s why I joined, “White Socks Detox”, the charitable organization that provides counseling to the fashion-challenged.  When we find someone wearing socks with sandals, we hold a mini-intervention and leave them with a card that says...

“If it’s hot enough for sandals, it’s too hot for socks.
If it’s cold enough for socks, it’s too cold for sandals.”

Because of my recent work with this group, my paper will be just a couple of days late.

Dear Teacher,

I am sorry but I will not be able to turn in my paper on time.

I took a break from writing an incredible paper to volunteer at the soup kitchen.  Well, first I stopped by the orphanage to read to the children, but that’s not important to this story.

I took my laptop with me because the paper was so good I wanted to keep working on it with any spare time I might get.  Anyway, my laptop fell into a large pot of soup while I helping to serve others.  But, that’s okay because later that day I saved a puppy from being hit by a train while I was on my way home from providing pro bono legal services.

I’ll get that paper to you as soon as possible.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

My paper is so well-written that it would probably even teach you few things!  However, because it is so awesome, it would be wrong of me to turn this paper in, shaming the rest of the class in the process.

As I see it, there’s only one thing for me to do... I am going to have to write another paper that is mediocre.  I will do this for the sake of class morale.  But, it’s a tragedy that this magnificent paper will never be read.

Expect my mediocre paper in a day or two.

Dear Teacher,

Flashing lights.  Impossibly thin, gray-ish creatures.  Strange noises.  You probably think I’m talking about The Rolling Stones’ new concert tour.  I’m not.

I’ve been abducted by space aliens.  Because of this, I regret to tell you that my research paper will be late.

I drifted off to sleep while working on my paper and, the next thing I knew, I was being beamed aboard an alien spacecraft.  Another way of looking at this is that I’ve been out of town and, therefore, unable to complete my paper.  Now that I’m back, I expect to finish it in a day or two.

Live long and prosper,
[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I’ll admit it... I’m the kind of person who usually waits until the last minute to do things.

That’s why last night’s unscheduled alien abduction has negatively impacted my schoolwork!  I had everything under control and would have easily finished my paper but, what with all the probing and memory erasure, I gotta tell you... I’m a real mess today!

I’m gonna need more time to finish that paper, please.

[your name here]

p.s. Wouldn’t you think they’d have more advanced medical technologies like CT scanners, MRI machines, Ultrasound equipment, etc.?  Seriously, what’s up with the probing?!

Dear Teacher,

I was walking home from Starbucks last night when an alien spaceship landed in a field next to me.  The aliens invited me into their craft for an interview, hoping to learn more about our species.

They have witnessed violence, inequality, bigotry, and intolerance in our culture.  They are quite disturbed by Man’s apparent lack of humanity.  Unfortunately, they took my research paper with them as an example of the cruelty that students must endure on this planet while seeking an education.  “Where we come from, research papers have gone the way of the Red-Crested Nerfargelax!,” their leader said.  (I can only assume that the Red-Crested Nerfargelax is an extinct species on their planet.)

I will retype my paper today and get it to you tomorrow, if you don’t mind.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

While sitting in my room working on the paper you assigned, space aliens appeared at my window.  They talked smack about my wimpy laptop then showed me their tablet computer. They accidentally broke my laptop while tossing it back and forth to each other in ridicule.

They felt bad about destroying my computer so they gave me theirs.  They told me it’s “a jPad running Windows 103.”  Funny thing is, Windows 103 still looks like the same lame OS that Microsoft has been putting out all these years!  You’d swear it was Windows 7 except the Start button is labeled “Make It So.”

My homework will be late, of course, as I’m having to re-type my paper and the jPad keeps blue-screening on me.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I am sorry to tell you that I cannot turn in my paper at this time.

I was recently visited by space aliens for the umpteenth time.  When they saw me struggling to finish my research paper, they tried to help by making a clone of me.  At first I was grateful but things got ugly fast.

The problem arose when I told my clone what needed to be done.  Apparently, it does not deal well with authority figures.  My clone got into a snit and deleted my paper, saying it could do better!  So, now I’m having to retype my paper and deal with the legal and moral issues of getting rid of my clone.  Right now, it’s using the phone to order Chinese take-out while pretending to speak Mandarin, spewing a bunch of gibberish syllables.  It’s maddening, really.  I can’t even sleep because I have to constantly stop it from ruining my reputation.

Thanks for allowing my paper to be late.

We are currently making up an excuse why this category isn't ready yet.

Dear Teacher,

I’m sure you’ve heard about the sinkhole that opened up in my neighborhood last night.

If not, it’s probably because the mayor is trying to suppress the story due to fears that it could negatively impact tourism.

Anyway, as my home slid into the sinkhole, I had little time to react.  I managed to stuff “Running Head,” my loveable weiner dog, into my backpack and claw my way to safety as our home was violently swallowed by the Earth.

Needless to say, my completely finished and well-written research paper was lost in this disaster.  I will try to retype it from memory but it will be late, of course. 

I appreciate your compassionate understanding.

Sincerely,
[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

Just as I put the finishing touches on my best paper ever, I heard a loud wooshing sound like that of an incoming missile.  Sensing imminent danger, I lept up and ran out the front door at the exact moment when the meteorite crashed through my roof!

My house was on fire but I bravely ran back into the conflagration in the hopes of salvaging my laptop and that wonderful paper I had completed for you.

Crawling to safety through the thick smoke with my laptop, I reached the front porch where firemen turned a hose on me to douse the flames that had engulfed my body.

Alas, the water from the firehose ruined my laptop and I’m going to have to type that paper all over again!  Arrrrgghhhhh!  I only hope that I can recreate that amazing paper that was lost due to no fault of my own!

Thanks for the serious concern you must be feeling for me.

Dear Teacher,

We don’t usually get a lot of locusts around here.

Everyone know that swarms of locusts were one of the 10 plagues of Egypt as described in the Book of Exodus.  Not so well known is that locusts really like to chow down on research papers!  That’s why I was caught off-guard, leaving my research paper unprotected as they swarmed my house yesterday.   Boy, I won’t make THAT mistake again!

At this point, all I can do is to retype that paper - with the windows closed this time!

I’ll get it to you as soon as I can.  In the meantime, let’s all be on the lookout for pestilence, frogs, boils, etc.

Thanks,
[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I was well on my way to finishing my research paper when something happened that made it impossible for me to complete my assignment...

Donald Trump tweeted again.

I know, I know.  I shouldn’t pay attention to Donald Trump’s twitter feed - but, I can’t help it.  It’s like watching a slow-motion train wreck... you can’t ignore it even though you know it’s wrong to stare.  With a maximum of only 140 characters to work with, he finds a way to alienate and anger more and more people with each tweet!  How does he do it?!

You have my word that I will ignore all social media until this thing is done.

Your “apprentice”,

Dear Teacher,

Due to a recent event of which you are likely unaware, I must inform you that my final paper will be late. Yes, the incident has indeed had a significant impact on my life and, as a result, my hard drive was erased by Federal agents for what I have been told are national security reasons. Sadly, this means that the paper I labored over for many hours was completely and irretrievably destroyed. Due to the nature of the event, I have been forbidden to reveal specific details on this action or discuss it with any unauthorized individuals. I will, of course, re-write my paper ASAP and have it on your desk at the earliest possible opportunity.

Thank you for understanding that the nation’s security interests must, at times, take precedent over our own personal deadlines.

God Bless America!

Dear Teacher,

I saw the cubs.  I should have known that the mama bear was nearby.

Sitting at a picnic table, typing my paper on a laptop computer, I was enjoying nature while completing your recent assignment.  I can only assume that the mama bear was concerned for the safety of her cubs.

When she charged, I hastily retreated to the safety of my car, leaving my laptop unprotected.  The mama bear destroyed my computer - probably as a warning to me - and, while I’m grateful that she spared my life, I wish I had made a backup of my paper!

As soon as I can get a new laptop, I’ll provide you with my finished paper.

Thanks,
[your name here]

Gi Day, Professor.

A dingo ate my paper!

I know what you’re thinking... that I didn’t write the paper and that this is just a lame excuse to turn in my paper late - right?

Crikey!  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Hey, I’ll admit to drinking a Foster’s while watching the Crocodile Dundee marathon yesterday on TNT, but that did not cloud my judgment.  The thing that ate my paper was not a dog, coyote, wolf, fox, hyena, or a jackal... it was a dingo.

So, no worries, mate.  I’ll type up that paper again and Bob’s yer uncle!

Dear Teacher,

Many people believe the Chupacabra to be a mythical creature like Bigfoot, Pegasus, or an honest politician.  I can tell you, with all certainty, that they DO exist.  I know this because, incredibly, a Chupacabra just destroyed my writing assignment!

A friend was reviewing my completed paper when the beast attacked.  It came out of nowhere and ripped the paper to shreds.  We were lucky to escape with our lives, I tell you!

While, we don’t know what provoked the monster, it’s quite clear that he hates research papers.  I have no choice but to recreate the paper from memory as the Chupacabra seems to have deleted the paper from my computer during the attack.

Sincerely,
[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

You’re not going to believe this but a Mekong giant catfish ate my paper yesterday.  Incredible, right?  I know!  Those fish are normally found in Southeast Asia!

I was fishing and writing my paper on a legal pad when I got a strong tug on the line.  I grabbed the rod and started reeling him in.  I was holding my legal pad in one hand as this giant catfish beached himself.  As I reached down and removed the hook, the catfish sprung to life and swallowed my left hand - which was still holding the legal pad!  I withdrew my hand - without the legal pad - as the fish wriggled back into the water and swam away.

I tried again and again to catch that fish but he was too smart to fall for the bait twice in one day.  I’ll rewrite that paper and get it to you tomorrow, okay?

thanks

Dear Teacher,

I’m going to be late turning in my paper because I’m donating a kidney to my cat.

“Chewbacca” has not been himself, lately.  The vet’s diagnosis was that his kidneys were failing.  An experimental medical procedure will be performed tomorrow that will remove a portion of one of my kidneys and implant it within Lil’ Chewie.

We should both be good-as-new in a couple of days.  

I’ll get that paper to you as soon as I can.

Thanks,
[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I don’t know how much you know about honey badgers.

If you’re unfamiliar with these animals, please go to YouTube and search for “Honey Badger Don’t Care“ and you will quickly learn that honey badgers don’t care about anything.  They just take whatever they want.  After watching a video of the creature, it should obvious why I didn’t try to protect my paper when a honey badger decided to eat it this morning.

He ripped my paper to shreds and then ate it.  It was nasty!  But honey badger doesn’t give a crap.  Honey badger doesn’t care about anything.

I’ll retype my paper and get it to you soon.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

My internet connection went down last night so I made a regrettable decision to send you my research paper via messenger pigeon.  Somewhere, there is a pigeon flying around with a most excellent paper strapped to his little collar!

It turns out that messenger (or “carrier”) pigeons aren't an effective way to deliver papers.  Sure, we both know that NOW.  But, “hindsight is 20-20”, as they say.

I’ll turn in my assignment as soon as my friend (who borrowed my laptop and went out-of-town) returns... early next week at the latest.

Thanks for your understanding.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I will be late with my paper due to a medical issue.

My giblets are acting up again, causing a lot of discomfort and swelling.  This makes it very difficult to complete the assignment in a timely manner.

I have applied a poultice made of ground flaxseed, rose hips, and plantain leaves and expect that the inflammation will subside within 24 hours, at which time I will complete my writing assignment.

Thank you.

Dear Teacher,

My paper is going to be late due to a “female problem”.

Of course, I’m talking about my boyfriend, Todd.  He’s such a jerk and he’s making me so crazy that I can’t type my paper.

I’ll finish my assignment this weekend while he’s watching sports.  It’s the only time I can get any peace around here.

Thanks,

Dear Teacher,

I’m typing this note against the orders of a physician who told me to not type for several days.  This note is short enough that I hope to escape further injury.

You see, I have a shred of eponychium on a proximal nail fold on the Digitus Secundus Manus of my right hand.  While you may call this a “hangnail”, I think it’s important to call it what it is and give it the respect it deserves.

My paper will be completed when this major wound has healed.  Ow!  It’s starting to hurt so I’d better quit typing for now...

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I have recently developed what I believe is an allergy to paper.

When I was loading my printer with paper in preparation for typing the latest assignment, I began to feel a little off.  I can’t put my finger on exactly what I felt but, all I know is that whenever I put paper in that printer and sit down to type a paper, I started feeling bad.  Really bad.  The next day, I tried it again and got the same results.  The only thing that seemed to help was for me to get up and do something fun.

I’ll try taking some Benadryl before I type and hope that it doesn’t make me too drowsy to complete the assignment.  At this point, I don’t know what else to do...

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I have been working diligently on my research paper for days on end.  Due to my non-stop typing, I suffered severe cramping in my fingers.  I immediately went to the emergency room.

After waiting in the emergency room for 3 days, I was finally seen.  Apparently, cases of BWCO (Baby Won't Come Out), CBT (Chronic Biscuit Toxicity), and AHF (Acute Hissy Fit) take priority over someone in my condition.  I was treated with paraffin wax soaks for my fingers and a manicure to help my overworked and highly stressed nail beds from all the beating on the keyboard.

I am now home, resting comfortably, and waiting for my nails to dry.  I will finish my paper as soon as possible.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I completed my assignment but I cannot turn it in on time.

Last week I was diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder.  Under the spell of a different personality, I wrote my paper yesterday.  Today, that personality won’t tell the rest of us where to find the document.  We think he’s acting out because we won’t let him watch, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”

I will rewrite the paper as my original personality today and send it to you late. I apologize  for this inconvenience but I thank you in advance for your understanding.  We’re all crazy to some extent, you know...

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I am SO sorry about missing the deadline for the essay. My recent personal problems led me to a hypnotherapist, and she gave me a post-hypnotic suggestion to forget about all my troubles.

Unfortunately, it really worked. So, the assignment was basically erased from my brain until I saw my notes that a paper was due.  

My friend is typing this because I'm not sure how the computer works now, either.  I’ll get that assignment to you as soon as I can re-learn a number of unpleasant things.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

While banging my head on my desk as I typed the recent writing assignment, I suffered a minor head injury. I was diagnosed with a slight case of amnesia and temporarily forgot that I had a paper due.  Boy, those were happy times!  

I am slowly regaining my memory and have placed foam rubber around the work surface of my desk to prevent this from happening again.  I apologize for the delay in turning in my paper.

Dear Teacher,

I suffer from a sleep disorder known as somnambulism (in layman’s terms, “sleepwalking”).

Last night, before bed, I had just completed the most amazing research paper of my entire life. Leaning back in my chair with a feeling of satisfaction for a job well done, I drifted off to sleep.

I woke up standing over my computer with a screwdriver in my hand. My hard drive is missing and I can’t find it anywhere.  I’m going to have to retype the paper.  Thank you in advance for your compassionate understanding.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I’ll admit to being confused sometimes.  I have failed to turn in this paper because I confused this class with the other one that I am currently enrolled in. Needless to say, that paper was turned in early. Please allow me an extra day to get your paper to you.

Thanks for your understanding.

[your name here]

Dear Teacher,

I could imagine that you are baffled as to why I have not yet submitted my research paper. Believe me, I am more disturbed by this than you are. Allow me to explain..

The  therapist I am currently seeing has forbidden me to submit this assignment, even though it has been sitting on my hard drive since the second week of the semester. He insists I must risk failing this course and that this "exposure" will help in the treatment of my OCD.

The doctor has told me to give you the paper in a couple of days.  By the way, I have already written all future papers but will hang on to them, possibly turning them in late, too.
