This was a fun thread on &T and hopefully here too. Post the worst excuses you've ever made or heard when you got caught. Good excuses are also appreciated. I'll start off with mine.
I've had lots of excuses, but one stands out as the absolutely worst.
Me and my friend were toking in one of the alleys near our school, about an hour after school let out that day. We're packing probably our sixth bowl, when who rounds the corner but our fucking literature teacher. We're like OMFG, I'm standing there packing the bowl, and my friend is playing with the lighter. I immediately drop the weed out of the lighter and throw it around with my shoe. A couple seconds later the teacher rolls up.
Teacher: "Hey guys, what're you doing?"
Me: "We're.. uh... doing an experiment for chemistry."
Teacher: "Oh so what's that thing?" (I was holding the stem of the bowl in my hand, so from it didn't quite look like a bowl).
I hold it up the bowl "It's for measuring the air pressure and like-"
Teacher "So whats the lighter for?"
Friend: "We're studying how heat affects the air pressure"
Teacher: "So what was that stuff that fell out of your "air pressure reader""
I responded instantly, "Burnt air"
Our teacher must've been so astounded by this explanation that he was just like "Ok, have fun" and drove away. My friend (who was, obviously, not as high as I was) almost killed me. Later in the year we found out that this particular teacher was pretty cool (especially on school sponsored trips to other countries ), so we never got caught. Burnt air still makes me LOL
