Good Excuses for Missing Work
- 12Jan 23 by brian, ADN AdminWe all been there. Calling out is something that everyone has to go through at some point. There are some excuses that work and some that you shouldn't use. Share your thoughts on what works, the funniest, and what doesn't. Do you have a good excuse for not going to work?
"My pipes broke."
What you shouldn't use...
"I got arrested."

Many, many yrs ago, I found the family pet who had been missing for a day.
He was dead, and I was devastated. I knew my husband couldn't come home from work just because our dog died, but I called him anyway. I was so sad.
When he showed up an hr later, I asked how he was able to leave. He told his boss that a close friend of the family had died and he needed to go home.
It was the truth, although "Fido" was more than our friend.

A tractor trailer decided yielding to oncoming traffic while switching lanes was just a suggestion. Hey, he mad at him LOL! Thank god I was wearing my seatbelt that day though, or I may not havegottej away with just a concussion and whiplash.
- 4Jan 23 by J.A.B.,SNI had to call in last semester because I got into a car wreck as well. I was on the highway going to work from school. I truck tried to swerve into my lane and I swerved to avoid them and ended up spinning out and totaling the car after hitting the median. When I called into work my boss acted like she was upset. I had on my seatbelt to and only had minor injuries but it is months later and my knee is still bruised from hitting the dash. My doctor says it is just going to take a long time to heal. I now have panic attacks when i am driving; I can literally feel my heart rate go up when people get to close or pull out in front of me.
- 5Jan 24 by CJ NV"I don't feel good.I'm having palpitation and sweaty"..Called in 2 hrs.before my night shift starts.It was a cold winter time,I must have covered myself with too much blankets and the heater was on.Or it could just be from "hot flashes"...
- 5Jan 24 by mh0712I have called in twice in two years. Once for profuse vomiting and the other because I was snowed in. However, a salt truck came through no joke 20 minutes later and I made it 3 minutes late. My friend once called in because she "didn't feel like working." Needless to say she left her position shortly after.
