Not My Fault

Questions from

1.  Meeting the prospective in-laws for the first time.

I’m looking after an aunty, and she can’t be on her own.
2.  Going to your partner’s firm’s social evening where you know it will be talking shop all night.

Is it this week, I thought it was last week and I need to see your parents.
3.  Not going to school on a test day.

The teachers are on strike, I don’t need to go in.
4.  Broken a window whilst playing outside

Lots of whistling, and blaming it on the dog.
5.  Having gone shopping, spent all the money, but not bought anything on the list.

I couldn’t find any of the items, the shelves were empty. Those boots, they were calling to me, and I lost my heel on the other pair because I was trying to find the items.
6.  Damaged the car

The lorry just came out of the turning, there was nothing I could do to stop it.
7.  Late for work

I thought it was Sunday.
8.  Forgotten to do your homework

My dog ate my homework (That really happened to my daughter, and she took in the homework to prove our dog ate it.)
9.  Insurance claim for damage to property

The pigeons did it.
10. Ruined an expensive piece of clothing.

I don’t know how that mark got there, it was the dog. He jumped onto my lap, and I spilled the coffee.

    1. To be fair, my dog, a German Shephard, Rottweiler mix is to blame for chewing everything. Including tile when he was a puppy. Although, he will always make me smile when I see him.


      1. Lovely mix……….. Maya is a GSD but so far hasn’t chewed very much………… we now cut the labels off towels! At 17 months old, she is still a puppy, just a large one at 35 kg! She makes us both smile too.
