You could say my car broke down or my wife is in the hospital

I've called in to work only 3 times in my life... two of those times I was in labor, and the third time I was in intensive care. (That's 3 times in 34 years)

I've never been one to dodge work, but it all depends on your individual work ethics.

Not really a call "out" of work, but I once had to call in late because I had a 12 foot alligator in my carport, wrapped around the front side of my car. (His head was right next to the driver side door) Everyone thought I was lying when I told them why I was late.

Tell them that you want to go out with some buddies in Jeeps to do some wheeling

Tell them when you got up this morning, you took two Ex-Lax in addition to my Prozac. You can't get off the john, but you feel good about it.

Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.

I had to go audition for American Idol.

I have transient amnesia and couldn't remember my job.

I was indicted for securities fraud this morning.

I'm still removing squirrels from my wall.

Uh, boss, I can't make it in today. I'm busy playing COD4MOD2

I dreamed that I was fired, so I didn't bother to get out of bed..

Someone stole all my daffodils.

In the 10+ years I've been working, I've only taken two sick days off, and have been late only once.

Your quote is exactly why I was late, LOL.

Well I am only at this college for another few months and after that I am transferring to another campus to finish out my degree. I had a better job that I can go back to, but it wasn't around here.

Doesn't matter, I have come up with an excuse too.

I would, but they're at work.
