Need a day off?

CNN has these EXCELLENT real life excuses used by actual employees:

1. At her sister’s wedding, an employee chipped her tooth on a Mint Julep, bent over to spit it out, hit her head on a keg and was knocked unconscious.

2. While at a circus, a tiger urinated on the employee’s ear, causing an ear infection.

3. An employee’s dog wasn’t feeling well, so the employee tasted the dog’s food and then got sick.

4. “Someone put LSD in my salad.”

5. An employee’s roommate locked all his clothes in a shed for spite.

6. “Stuck on an island — canoe floated away.”

7. An employee was upset because his favorite American Idol contestant was voted off.

8. “I didn’t think I had to come in if I had time in my vacation bank. I thought I could take it whenever I wanted.”

9. An employee said he wasn’t feeling well and wanted to rest up for the company’s holiday party that night.

10. A groundhog bit the employee’s car tire, causing it to go flat.

See, I helped!

  1. If a tiger pissed in my ear, I’d definitely use that as an excuse to get some time off work! Wouldn’t you?

    Actually, I think I’ll stick with the regular “my stomach is really upset. I won’t be in, but you can call me if you have any questions.”

  2. KC – Totally. I’d use that for everything. “Nope, can’t eat lunch with you today, a tiger urinated in my ear. Sorry!”

    I’m considering using one tonight to get out of a long boring work meeting…
