Students often try the excuse that the printer broke. That works fine, until you note that they also have access to email. Then the excuse becomes their email didn’t deliver. It’s funny how all technology fails when it comes time to turn a paper in.
HOBO: You could have still emailed it to me.
TREY: Yeah, I did that.
HOBO: I didn't get it. Can you show me your sent mail?
TREY: Yeah, I accidentally deleted that. And then my computer exploded. And my thumb drive spontaneously combusted. And Dropbox was shut down by the FBI. It's the apocalypse and all you care about is this stupid paper!
