Today, my english teacher asked me why I didn't have my project completed. Thinking quick on my feet I told her it was because my grandmother had just passed away. Apparently they go to the same country club and have known each other for years. My teacher started crying and ran out of the room. FML

The teacher probably asked which grandma it was since she knew one of them and the OP told her.

In any event, this is still a horrible excuse and a big YDI.
16 and 10, are you really saying it's okay to pretend a relative died?


the teacher probably knew and she was getting back at you. you've got a smart teacher on your hands.

anyway, why bother asking why they don't have it. if they have a legit reason, they'll come and tell you themselves.

I'm wholly with #26 here, it's very easy to lie about a grandparent being dead as even the most tight official definition means you have at least four. And more than that these days with divorces and step-parents and just the fact the phrase ISN'T one people usually keep to a tight official definition, anyone old and a friend of the family can be your "grandmother" or "granddad"

Wait..."My grandma died" was what you came up with AFTER quick thinking?
You need to be more creative than THAT.
Tell her that it's on your work computer, but your boss decided to "upgrade" the printer by bringing in a crappier "new" version that isn't formatted to the new system.

YDI. Don't come up with lame excuses, and never use someones apparent death as an excuse, you just saw what happened. If you have something unfinished, come up with an excuse in time and make sure it doesn't have anything to do with other persons, that way you won't get caught :P

YDI. That was a bitch move.
What if your grandmother really dies?
You would feel like such a douche.
Next time, if you don't fail that class, use a more harmless excuse.
Or here's a better idea: Do the work, and hand it in on time.
