Have you been in a situation such as..getting reprimanded by the teacher because you have not done your homework, yet with a valid reason... perhaps medically certified. However the teacher, having no intention of listening to your reasons in the first place, will not change their stand and thus claim that your reasons are actually just excuses.

.thus claims that your "Reasons are actually just excuses".

What the hell. So whats the matter? Reasons are just excuses anyway. We students know that. We don't need your reminder.

But i guess you know what the teachers is trying to say. "Reasons are actually just excuses". What they actually mean is " I know you are lying, asshole. I'm not as gullible as you think I am. Quit lying and admit what you have done wrong and I'll probably forgive you. "

This tells us that they have probably misunderstood the entire definition of 'excuse', in other words, they don't know what an 'excuse' is. Which probably ALSO means they do not use the following phrases:

May I be excused,
Excuse me,
Excuse my father,
Excuse my mother,
Excuse my sister,
Excuse my brother.

Heres the definition.

And heres the definition of reason.

As you can see from the two images above, both 'reason' and 'excuse' are explanations. The difference is that an excuse requires someone to have the hope of being forgiven or understood ( of which the teacher will not know if someone is hoping to be forgiven or understood). Furthermore, even if it isn't a reason, it doesn't really matter.
