Most unusual excuses offered for tardiness to work....
A study by CareerBuilder.com found that as many as 13 percent of American workers show up late at least once a week and that 25 percent are tardy at least once a month. Read story here. Here are the top ten:
1. "I dreamed that I was fired, so I didn't bother to get out of bed." 2. "I had to take my cat to the dentist." 3. "I went all the way to the office and realized I was still in my pajamas and had to go home to change." 4. "I saw that you weren't in the office, so I went out looking for you." 5. "I couldn't find the right tie, so I had to wait for the stores to open so I could buy one." 6. "My son tried to flush our ferret down the toilet and I needed to tend to the ferret." 7. "I ran over a goat." 8. "I stopped for a bagel sandwich, the store was robbed and the police required everyone to stay for questioning." 9. "A bee flew in my car and attacked me and I had to pull over." 10. "I wet my pants and went home to change."What are some good ones that you have heard or used yourself? :)
