Excuses for incomplete homework assignments are rarelygreat, but one little girl’s ‘dog at my homework’ note was so good, it’s been shared over a million times all over the internet.
Recently, Reddit user phombshared a note they called the “best homework excuse ever.” It was written for a little girl named Maddie and said she didn’t get her homework done the previous night because her family was busy celebrating some really big news. When I first saw it, I assumed the news would be a pregnancy or engagement or something equally relatable, but I was wrong. Turns out Maddie’s grandfather won a Nobel Prize!
According to the Mirror, Maddie’s grandfather is none other than Tomas Lindahl, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry last week, along with Paul Modrich and Aziz Sancar for their work on genetic repair. The note requested an extra day for Maddie to complete her assignment because her ecstatic family was no doubt celebrating Lindahl’s incredible accomplishment.
The Reddit user originally shared the note expecting some chuckles, but people were quick to lash out at the girl’s parents fortreating her like a “special snowflake” and not expecting her to do her work. Wrote one, “Her grandfather is out winning Nobel prizes and she can’t even do her homework? Failure of the family.” The bash-fest only continued when the story got picked up by other sites.
