10 Legitimate Reasons Not to Do Homework

I’m sure you could use these excuses in real life.

  1. Homework Can Cause Depression

    If the homework topic is hard or too boring, the student could get depressed at not being able to complete it. This could result in the subject feeling inadequate or have anger issues. This would be bad for society, as a person with this personality type would be a bane on society and be useless, as his feelings restrict him from reaching his full potential.

  2. By Doing Homework, I Might Get Biased to a Subject

    For example, if I do to much English, I might grow to like it or hate it. This is bad, as being so biased to a subject will make us ignorant and retarded towards other subjects.

  3. There Are Some Other Things Which Rank Higher On My To-Do List Than Petty Homework

    Global warming is a big issue and threatens to destroy our way of living. Although many people pretend it is not happening, the effects of global warming are evident to people with enough brains to notice that there is less water everywhere. By not using my computer to do homework, I can save a lot of electricity that can be used for other beneficial things. I would gladly write it out, but that would conflict with my ninth (th) reason.

  4. Another Part of my Life Includes Sleeping

    This takes up a lot of my time, due to the uncontrollability of the situation. I have to sleep for a long duration at home, as I stay awake in class and listen attentively all day. If I don’t sleep a lot, I could die from exhaustion. Homework cuts into my sleeping time, and doesn’t serve a purpose at all. If they want to judge me by my written work, could they not just look at my assignments that are done at school? It is not like this homework piece will have something that will make everyone celebrate or jump for joy.

  5. If I Attempt To Do My Homework, Somewhere Along The Lines, Paper Will Be Involved

    Believe it or not, an encounter with paper increases the chance of significant body harm from paper associated issues. If you use one piece of paper, there is a small chance of getting a paper cut. But, if you use it all the time, you’re bound to get a paper associated injury sooner or later.

  6. Using The Computer All The Time Wastes Electricity

    The constant usage of such energy guzzling items results in furthering the effects of global warming and gives my dad a large electricity bill. This would be unhealthy for my family, as my dad could get anger issues if he can’t pay such a large electricity bill and he might physically abuse his family.

  7. Printing Out Homework Kills Trees

    After I have typed my homework, I’ll have to print it out so that it can be viewed and marked by the teachers. By printing it out, a tree will be wasted for my education. I value life above learning, and I would rather have that tree live another day than have a “Good Job!” sticker.

  8. After Typing (Or Writing) For a Long Time, My Fingers Start Hurting Due To Their Constant Use

    My neck also starts aching and I feel a small sensation of pain. This constant stress on parts of my body that I need could affect me in the future. If you get pains in your fingers or neck, you immediately try to stretch them. This causes stress to the bone joints, and could cause arthritis in the future. I would prefer not to have these pains, and this seems a perfectly good reason not to do homework.

  9. I Am Part of a Wonderful Society Called “The Society Against Cruelty to Writing Utensils”

    Just because they were created by man for convenience, that doesn”t mean that they have no rights. We are currently petitioning for “The Universal Declaration of Writing Utensil Rights”, which we wrote ourselves. It is currently a work in progress, but we hope that mindless violence against pencils and pens will be a thing of the past. So far, we have been ignored and laughed at.

  10. Did My Ancestors and Forefathers Fight For My Country So That I Would Have To Do Homework In Another Country?

    If I have to do homework, I would like to do it in a familiar environment, where I will not be racially judged by fanatical Ku Klux Klan members, like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s parents (I do not mean any offence to anyone, and actually don’t mean any of this. I just needed another reason to finish this homework piece).

    Well i guess look at it this way, the more homework assigned the more life we waste of the teacher who has to sit there and read and grade it.

    Seriously, there are so many other important things to do in life than homework, like feeding homeless people, making your own website, researching conflicting political viewpoints, making emergency kits, training to be a ninja, banning homework, planning out your future, what career you want to go into, etc.

    Homework is inanimate; it doesn’t have a sexual orientation or a mood. However, it can definitely be a waste of time.

    in my school we are given a timetable on what day we get homework for diffent subjects. this week ive been thrown of wmy scedual because 3 of thes sceduals have been brocken and 1 of which because the teacher thought he never undderstood the homework we had to do it again. also she said that none of them have a story or meaning ( pop art)when not even asking for the meaning . mine has a lot of meaning. it through me off so baddy i diddent even do the hw because i had a good case and i never had time. but she was not in so i was lucky. butt she is the most annoying art teacher in the world , i was geting pissed because she gave me a 20 mnite detention for not doing enough colarge when i couldent find the picttures that went with my master peice whe more meaning than life. i was depressed for about 10hrs.

    You do realize that if you spent this time working on your homework rather than fighting against doing homework… would be done. Then again, if I were to stop looking up stuff like this I would also have my homework done. LOL guess it works both ways. Really though, this is funny and dose make sens in a weird and not valid way.

    If you did not do your school work, you would not know what your Ancestors fought for and you would not know about global worming.

    also, if you do your homework your fingers will get the exercise needed to do stuff you want to do, like play video games. Also, your paper cut issue is going to make your skin stronger and over time and a series of paper cuts you will not get them any more. As for cruelty to writing utensils, if you get paper cuts you can use your blood to write your paper. If it is a big deal that you use paper, get paper that is recycled. As for sleeping, you have plenty of time to sleep after you die.

    Well, good luck getting out of doing your school work. you just inspired me to do mine. Thanks

    Well, WTF are you doing reading this article if you have 6 other assignments you could be doing instead of wasting your time reading this if you’re not doing a paper on this topic. And that many assignments in 2 weeks is pretty easy
