Happy Friday! Congratulations! You have made it through another week and the weekend is almost upon us! Occasionally something might come up that can keep us from getting to work on time or perhaps causing us to miss the entire day. When that happens, I hope the reason that you offer your boss is not one of those below.
Sorry, but I forgot that you hired me.
Sorry, but when I looked at the Lotto numbers last night, I was sure I had won. I was going to quit today but when I double-checked again this morning, I only won $5.
Sorry, but I ate way too much last night at a party and I need a day off to let all of that food digest.
Sorry, but I think my dog is having a mental breakdown.
Sorry, but there is a large, angry dog in front of my house and I think he will attack me if I try to get to my car.
Sorry, but I thought there was a Level 1 Nice Day Emergency and that it was against the law for me to drive to work.
Sorry, but I am so upset about who got kicked off Survivor last night that I just can’t concentrate on work today.
Sorry, but my cat unplugged my alarm clock.
Sorry, but I got stuck in the blood pressure machine at the grocery store.
Sorry, but someone glued all my doors and windows shut and I can’t get out of the house.
Sorry, but I was bitten by a goose on my way to work and need to go to the doctor.
Sorry, but I just can’t find an outfit that works with my mood today.
Sorry, but the cookies I was going to bring to work today did not turn out well and I will have to make a new batch.
