    ive never made up an excuse not to go to work & my OH never had a day off in 18 yrs until he almost got crushed with a fork lift, he would never have a day off unless he was genuine

    Ok...this is not an excuse it really happened!

    In my old flat our bedroom door handle had broken so we said we would sleep with it open until we fixed it the next day cos if you shut it u could not open it from the inside.......anyway! no surprises in the night one of us must have got up to go to the toilet and then shut it!! got up to get ready for work next morning and hey presto!! LOCKED IN!:D luckily had phone in bedroom so phoned work and told em couldnt make it in as had to wait for my dad to come and then break in to get in front door and get us out!! they pis*ed them selves laughing:smilewinkgrin::D

    My Top 5 Favourites Are

    1) Sorry Boss I can't come into work today...my spirit guide says work is for losers!

    2)When I got up this morning, I took two Ex-lax in addition to my Prozac. I can't get off the Bog, but I feel good about it.

    3)If it is all the same to you I won't be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.

    4)Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.

    5)I just found out that I was switched at birth. Legally, I shouldn't come to work, knowing my employee records may now contain false information.

    Most of these i have used on more then one occasion, to the delight of my former bosses!
