Dealing with the dead grandmother excuse

A colleague many years ago told me he always accepted the student's report of a death. And then always sent a sympathy card to the family. If the death really happened, he often received a kind thank-you note. If there was no death, well... One student's parents were so mad at their child that they pulled him out of school. Win-win for the instructor.
