Student tells professor he missed seminar to attend funeral. Professor asks for proof.
If you don't show up to a seminar and your professor asks you why and the honest answer is "I didn't want to go", it's tempting to lie and say "I had to go to the doctors" or "my bus didn't show up".
Or, if you really have to, use this handy excuse generator...
What you shouldn't do, however, is what Ryan Johnson did. When his professor asked him why he hadn't shown up for a class, he told them "because I was at a funeral".
Unfortunately the professor didn't believe him at all and asked for proof.
So Ryan Johnson did what any other student would do when they are caught out in a lie. He confessed and asked for forg.... oh no, he didn't. He sat down and forged an order of service.
After Ryan's friend tweeted his forged order of service, a lot of people have seen it.
When you lie and tell the professor you missed class for a funeral and they ask for an obituary so now you have to go make one pic.twitter.com/OWzd1OBero— Tu Padre (@TyBillups) November 15, 2016

But so far there is no word on whether the professor has figured out the con yet. We'll keep you updated.
