    It was snowing.  I wasn't there but my mom told me about it.  Half the office was late because there was 2 inches of snow on the ground.  If you live in snow that's not a big deal  considering that was in the early 80's and it hasn't snowed sense then or for 50 years before that here.  It was a big deal

    my dog is sick. I've used it once - when I slept in till 10 am. I have a good enough job where I am in a decent position. I had used up my sick time a few weeks prior so I didnt have any room to err. At any rate, I went back to work the next day and lied even worse saying, I think she is pregnant....hmmm? OK so the joke wound up on me, in a few weeks, I found out she was pregnant...and 5 puppies later, I am now a grandma of 5 smile... Careful though, lying stinks and almost always you will get caught in a tangle. My simplest excuse, is "I really just dont feel good"

    The silliest excuse I ever received was "I can't come in - it's raining." As a native of Minnesota and having had to drive through snow drifts to get to and from work, this was hysterical - and unacceptable.

    An employee once told me she was late to work because her car was blocked by a fire engine. I thought that was a silly excuse. Why didn't she drive around it, I asked. Because the fire they were trying to extinguish was under the hood of her car.
