  • Food poisoning :)
  • I hurt my back lifting a 200-pound Answerbag! :p
  • I have to do some research work, for my thesis.
  • "I've got 87 hours of comp time, boss. I want to take this Friday and Monday off." One of my young sailors many years ago (when I was still in the Navy) was VERY late for work. As in late enough to warrant writing him up for Unauthorized Absence (AWOL for the other services). When he finally showed up for work his excuse was: "I was up until three in the morning getting laid. I hadn't been laid in two years." I tore up the report sheet and sent him home to get some more sleep.
  • Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard are on the tv haha No seriously though I have conjuctivites and I am already have blind so it wont help me coming into work ... lol
  • I ate mushrooms and got food posioning, and ive been up all night by the toilet bowl puking...LOL
  • I have been out of work for almost a year but the one that I knew they couldn't say no to was..."My daughter has a fever & I can't take her to daycare." Worked everytime.
  • You shouldn't lie silly goose's. just ask for the day off in advance! :)
  • I missed work and never called in. The next day I went in and told my boss I got an impaired and was in jail that night. Total lie. She felt sorry for me. Man did I feel like an ass. She actually had every intention of firing me until I told her my sob story.
  • Blood in my pee.
  • Food poisoning or a 24 hour bug are the best excuses since most employers would rather you stay home if you have the potential of being sick in front of them. That or you claim to have not slept all night because of the reasons above making you have to run to the bathroom every five minutes.
  • lol well i just recently said that my sister has been staying with me and she went into labor and so i had to stay with her so she wasnt alone.
  • I only get three paid sick days a year. I have to use them wisely, so my only excuse is the truth, that I'm sick.
  • Diarrhea, generally you won't get asked anymore questions after that... Really you should ask for the day off in advance, but otherwise otherwise a migraine, one day off and no proof needed, can't get to the doctors whilst having a migraine as it's too painful so you won't have a medical certificate...
  • I never made an excuse, and I never took any sick or vacation days unless they were official holidays, and I worked on plenty of Saturdays, and still they had the audacity to write off an absence I had once as unjustified when I phoned in and told them why, which was being sick. Since WHEN do I need to confirm that it was supposed to be a sick day? I thought it was pretty obvious. I think I had a burnout, among other reasons why, and I hope they're having a hard time.
  • I hate telling lies,so no lame excuses. Do the right ,say I do not feel like working today :)
  • I was working in a call center one fateful summer and this was the type of call center so boreing that they actually looked up the number you called in on to verify your story. One day I had a friend come visit me on holidays, she was from a little town called Whitehorse, which happens to be in the Yukon. I ended up feeding em a line about getting on the wrong plane home and ended up there, oh they laughed at me but when they verified my story I watched a lot of eyes go from slits to dinner plates. It actually worked, true story.
  • DON'T LIE JUST TELL THE TRUTH AND ASK FOR THE DAY OFF
  • I can't have an excuse. I have to be at work regardless... UNLESS I have to go to the doctor.
  • For me once I use a stupid one and they bought it hehe =P I told them when I was trying to make the alarm in my watch I didn’t notes that I made the time to PM instead of AM so I didn’t woke up =P
  • "Sorry boss, I've got EXPLOSIVE DIARRHEA and don't know if I can hold it 'till I get to the office."
  • Sorry boss but I just had a friend that passed away and I'm not going to be able to make It today.
  • "I'm trying to resist this overwhelming urge to kill an a**hole today." Just kidding. Seriously though, I once got written up by my born-again Pentecostal hypocrite boss for having to take my son to the emergency room when he was injured. The idiot actually had the nerve to tell me that I needed to manage my time better.
  • To drunk to wake up.

  • I do not miss work. I have to work. I am a republican. If I were a democrat then working would simply be optional and I could live, temporarily or longer, on entitlements.
  • I'm self employed so I just fire myself.
  • I just say I need a day off. I work my butt off there and have put in lots of hours. My boss has no problem with me wanting to take a day of now and then.
