"Where is your homework?" asked the teacher.
"My dog ate it," the little boy replied.
"Young man, I've taught school for eighteen years. Do you really expect me to believe that excuse?"
"But it's true!" the boy exclaimed. "I had to smear it with honey, but I finally got him to eat it!"
Don't make excuses for neglecting your responsibilities, and don't look for someone else to blame. Keep your word, even when it becomes harder than you expected.
