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? :)

Dear Kevin,

When I was newly married, I took off at 4:30 a.m. driving my new wife's car 3 hours to seminary on the day I had a test in Old Testament at 8:00 a.m.

After about 1 1/2 hours of driving, it was below 1/4 tank, so I stopped for gas, only to find a locking cap on the gas tank. I had Susan's spare keys, which did not have the gas cap key.

I turned around and made it back home without running out of gas, but by the time I got home class was starting. The class was three hours long, so even if I had gone, I would have missed it entirely.

My professor, Dr. Ellis, bought my story, and said he had actually heard that one before.

Love in Christ,


Oh yeah, and on another one of those 3-hour seminary drives I got a couple of bad cream-filled Long Johns, and had to stop to throw up about five times along the way. I had left early, so I made it to class that time, only about 10 minutes late, and by that time I felt okay. I didn't bother telling that one to Dr. Ellis.

That must have been a bummer! My bad Seminary story was when I got Mono my second semester there.

I assume you are referring to E. Earl 'the pearl' Ellis. I've heard some good things about him. Love the nickname, though. It's a classic.

Dear Jason,

Sorry, Dr. Bob Ellis, flaming moderate, now at Logsdon last I heard.

Love in Christ,
