Sometimes the unexplained happens. If you're a teacher, then the odds are that you probably think you've heard every student excuse in the book. But sometimes the most outlandish excuses turn out to be true. The only thing more bizarre than some of these crazy excuses by students is that all of them actually turned out to be true. From pets who actually did destroy homework to wild stories that turned out to be legit, the teachers of Reddit share the wildest sounding stories that they were actually able to verify.

"I didn't come to school because I was in Mexico at my hypnotist."
Yeah didn't think one would take a day trip to Mexico for a hypnotist and be back the next day but that was in fact what had happened."
From Redditor /u/shakeelraja:
That their homework had been confiscated by Colonel Gadaffi's police. Turns out the kid's father worked for a Libyan bank, and the homework was about aerosols. Kid had gone to visit him during the summer break, and it was taken by the border guards.
