What is the most silly excuse presented for coming late to office?
What in your live experience,is the most silly or foolish excuse presented by any of your collegue or sub-ordinate.for coming late to office in morning?
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 ... 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.
