Why Work? I have an excuse ...

Matter of fact ... 15 have been provided for me by one of the National online Career Job Market's.

Any of the following ring a bell???
My comments are in bold type


1~ I'm too drunk to drive to work
(they think I drive to work)

2~ I accidentally flushed my keys down the toilet
(actually lost the cell phone in the toilet once and couldn't call in)

3~ I had to help deliver a baby on my way to work (I was not in the medical profession at this time)

4~ I accidentally drove through the automatic garage door before it opened
(I think I might have been drunk at this time)

5~ My boyfriend's snake got loose and I'm afraid to leave the bedroom until he gets home
(this is why I wanted a phone in both the bedroom and bathroom or a boyfriend)

6~ I'm too fat to get into my work pants
(I live in Dallas and on the new AOL weight plan ... heheee)

7~ God didn't wake me
(I didn't believe in alarm clocks and thought a higher power would wake me when "she" was ready) *sigh*

8~ I cut my fingernails too short, they're bleeding and I have to go to the doctor
(I'm a free bleeder)

9~ The ghosts in my house kept me up all night
(something about moaning and chains excits me)

10~ I forgot I was getting married today
(I have no other reasonable excuse, unless they believe I'm allergic to that, probably not)

11~ My cow bit me
(ok, this might be a little more then even I can explain ... take it away, Kyplowboy )

12~My son accidentally fell asleep next to wet cement, in our backyard, his foot fell in and we can't get it out (wtf?? no excuse)

13~ I was watching a guy fixing a septic pump, fell in the hole and hurt myself
(if they would only fix my frozen bathroom pipes )

14~ I was walking my cat and slipped on a toad in my driveway and hurt my back
(you should have seen the frog ...ewwwweee)

15~ My house lock jammed, and I'm locked in
(actually, I feel like I live in the tundra of the north and my car door won't close now, cause it's frozen open)

AND my number 16 reason for calling in to play hookey from work ..... cause I'm here in the North ...

I'm Southern, we don't do cold or snow ... get over it.

What's your most unusual excuse to play "hookey" from work?

I had to call in once on a variation of number five... There was a copperhead in my car and I sure as hell wasn't messing with it. But number eight... That happened to me in an office. My nail hit the desk just right. It snapped off, below the quick AND snapped towards the skin, so the nail cut me badly. I was bleeding all over the carpet and it wouldn't stop. They got out the first aid kit, poured the iodine on my hand and bandaged me up. Then one person drove me home in my car and our boss followed, to take him back to the office. I didn't go to the doctor, and the bleeding eventually stopped. But man, it hurt like a bitch.

I once tried to call out dead. I told them I'd be back in three days, after my resurrection. I'm glad my boss had a sense of humor.

Back in my younger days.... God... I'm gettin old...
I worked nights... and one particular morning just before I went home I took the call from someones mom... that he would be out for a while... when I pressed her for how long... I was told 7 years... that was the time the judge had given her son for breaking and entering...

Oh, Miss Ann...
I shiver to think of a snake in the car ... and we (females) all know the horrible pain of a broken nail!!!
(squints her eyes in pain of memory).

But, I have yet to use the "dead excuse" ... maybe when they upgrade my benefits at work, I can ask for bereavement time?

Thanks for droppin by... toodles!

I usually call in to tell them I'm having eye trouble.
