I can't come in today because I'll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work, ok?

"My bed broke, I'm pinned against wall, and I cannot get out of bed."

"I am too queer to work." - used by some as a gay protest.

"I'm not coming to work, I'm an illegal immigrant." - similar to the above.

"I killed someone an am at the police department." - based on an excuse one man used for not testifying in a trial. He claimed he killed 6-7 people and would hurt the case.

When I was a beverage manager at a Casino one of my workers called and said:

I can't come in today because I feel a little wobbley, last night was my b-day.

My response:

Yeah, I guess you don't remember that I was there and I'm the one that took you home after you told me 5 times to eff off. By the way, don't bother coming back to work until you clean the barf out of my car.

I heard, OH GOD, OH GOD, OH GOD, I'm so sorry for the next month!

I know a guy who claimed he was too sober to work, that he had the shakes and couldn't work safely until he could get a couple of drinks. That is an alcoholic for you.

I don't need an excuse. There are no jobs here in Tennessee.
I'm over 50.
I'm over educated.(you can't tell it from my posts.)
I have been paid too much in the past.
It's been two years without work and I cannot find a job flippin' burgers! You need great Spanish communication skills now. This is not racist but fact.

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

Wow MH, I'm really sorry to hear this. I know a lot of people out of work and some that have even lost their homes.

Oh, in the excuse not to testify in a court trial, it was in the Hans Reiser case. Sean Sturgeon really didn't want to testify, so he said he killed 8-9 people.

The following search string should work:
+"Hans Reiser" +serial +"Sean Sturgeon"

That was sort of a scary guy too. I mean, he was into all sorts of kink and all. That seemed to be Mr. Reiser's motive for killing Nina Reiser, since Sean was allegedly doing all that with her and he couldn't stand it.

Back on topic, I could see someone trying that with their boss.
