Late to Work Excuses

Straight from the Tribune:

Here are some of the highlights:

•”A Vaseline truck overturned on the highway and cars were slipping left and right.”

•”My lizard had to have emergency surgery in the morning and died during surgery. I had to mourn while deciding whether to have the lizard disposed of by the vet or bring the lizard corpse with me to work.”

•”I thought of quitting today, but then decided not to, so I came in late.”

•”My hair caught on fire from my blow dryer.”

•”I was detained by Homeland Security.”

•”I had to chase my cows back into the field.”

•”There was a store grand opening and I wanted to get the opening day sales.”

•”All of my clothes were stolen.”

•”I had to finish watching ‘My Name is Earl.'”

•”I was confused by the time change and unsure if it was ‘spring forward’ or ‘fall back.'”

•”A black bear entered my carport and decided to take a nap on the hood of my car.”

•”There was fresh powder on the hill. I had to go skiing.”
