I thought a thread on the most common teen excuses could be interesting and informative.

Such as....

The last bus never turned up, when they come home late.

"the teacher didn't tell us to write it down"
"I wasn't in class then"
"we haven't covered that yet, so I can't do the homework"

More usually though just little chirruping noises. Not excuses, I think, but they might be, because I rarely understand them...

Morning - "grunty chirrup"
Bye - "grunty chirrup"
Why are you wet through when you have a jacket in your hand? "sad chirrup"
Granny has brought you some chocolate creme eggs - "happy chirrup".

I got a really nice hug last night though... grin

DS1 told me yesterday that he didn't pick his wet towel up off the bathroom floor after his shower, because "I had to pick up DS2's towel before my shower, and I'd run out of picking-up energy"!

That actually made me LOL grin
