Excuses, Excuses, Excuses

Excuses…

We all make them. You, I, them… basically everyone. We don’t just make them to get out of stuff but to justify our behavior or other people’s behavior.

I guess what I mean to say is, sorry I haven’t posted in so long 😦

Seriously though, do you think life would be better if we stopped making excuses? Or are excuses useful and absolutely necessary?

Let me know!

P.S: I am just busy with finals and some work stuff! I promise to post ‘real posts’ pretty soon! Thank you for reading!

  1. Hmmm good question. I think excuses are almost expected. Rather than accepting sorry, we ask why and then the excuse becomes mandatory. I have, at times, said I don’t have an excuse, it just is what it is and have found the other person was very perplexed and left unsatisfied. Since then I have armed myself with excuses 😀

    Good luck with finals and stuff.

  2. I find the etymology of “excuse” sort of funny — an excuse is a reason that is supposed to excuse is for our behavior or failure. Yet so many of them fail to do that. I think a conscientious effort to ensure that our reasons /are/ excuses would be beneficial, though.

    • ahhahhahha I’ve always loved the Olympics! But yes it has distracted me so much so that I forgot to hit follow on your blog! :p

      • I really liked the music, actually. One of my favourite bands, Underworld, were put in charge of directing the music side of things.

        They’re actually a techno band, and I was surprised that they were asked to do it in the first place.

  3. I have lots of excuses, but they’re all mundane. I wish someone would write a book with snazzy excuses. I’d do it, but I hurt my hand in an arm wrestling contest and my dog at the notes I’d made, and my throat is feeling a bit scratchy now, so I’d better lie down.

  4. I shall be taking the weekend off blogging to see the Olympic finals of the mens football tournament, I’m sure you’re incredibly jealous. I’ll bring you back an ePresent. 😛
