Best Excuse Contest

Let's have a contest!

Whoever can supply the best excuse given by them or to them for not coming into work wins!*

Here's my entry: A student called to ask off work today because she was covered in shark juice. She may have said more, but my brain froze on shark juice. I told her it was okay to go home and take a shower rather than come into work. Or maybe I just said shark juice a few times. I'm not sure.

I'm sure someone can beat that. But shark juice? Seriously?

I bet you anything she was dissecting a dogfish shark in a comparative anatomy class. It's a pretty gross smell, so the decision to let her go home and shower was definitely a sound one.

Anon, thanks for the insight. I don't doubt her, but it did throw me for a loop.

I once told my boss that I couldn't come to work because a guy my hubby worked with fell through a ceiling and was in the ER and I had to go sit with him. Then I had to endure all kinds of questions about the guy and his injuries for weeks afterword it sucked.

Not work, but I had a subject for a 3am MRI say he had accidentally made plans and couldn't make it.

Who makes plans for 3am?

Also, a coworker had to get rabies shots because she killed a bat with her face. Yep, out biking near dark, a bat ran into her while she was going full speed downhill...

Are bats attracted to shark juice? We could say they are because no one knows.

Personally, my excuse once was tree on house. Unfortunately it was true.
