Teachers can see right through your “My dog ate the homework” excuse plus it is both stupid and old fashioned. You need to come up with a better plan to dodge the assignment submission deadline without any deduction of marks. Don’t panic and check out this proven way of getting extra time for assignment submission.
Open a new word file, write some text or your half finished assignment in it and save the file. It is important that your file contains some written text.
Copy and paste the file to create its backup.
Now open notepad and go to File > open.
When the open file dialoge box appears, select “All files” instead of “Text Documents” from the drop down menu in front of the file name and open the original saved word file.
The file will open up in the notepad like this.
Remove some random lines from the text and save the file. The file will be saved with .docx extension and not .txt extension.
Submit the saved file to your professor and keep working on the back up file in order to complete the assignment. When your professor opens the submitted file, he will have the error message. You can use this opportunity to get some extra time from your professor.
