Crazy Excuses for Missing Work

I came across some crazy excuses for missing work the other day.

I thought I’d share a few from this article and then hear some from you…

  • Employee didn’t want to lose the parking space in front of his house.
  • Employee hit a turkey while riding a bike.
  • Employee said he had a heart attack early that morning, but that he was “all better now.”
  • Employee donated too much blood.
  • Employee’s dog was stressed out after a family reunion.
  • Employee was kicked by a deer.

Ok, your turn. What’s the craziest excuse you’ve used… I mean heard for missing work?

This should be fun. :)
