We could turn this into a game:

"The dog ate my car keys."

"Aliens abducted me."

"Someone spiked my drink."

"The big boss gave me an STD last night."

Rainy Mondays were MY favorite day to call in sick. I didn't mind snow as much. Rain is more depressing and you just want to stay in bed.

Reminds me of the joke about the lady asking the pharmacist for poison.

A woman went to the drug store and asked the pharmacist to sell her some arsenic. He asked what she wanted it for, and she said to kill her husband. He said, "Good heavens no, that would be illegal!" The woman pulled out photos of her husband having sex with the pharmacist's wife. Then the pharmacist asked, "Why didn't you tell me you had a prescription?"

Too funny. My thought was:

"The dog ate the tires off my car."

There was a guy I used to work with who once called in sick because he had sunburn on his feet and could not even bare to put socks on....no less shoes.

I thought that was fricken funny.

I have called in late a few times over the years, told them the car wouldn't start. I stood in the window (in my pj's, coffee in hand) and said "Start, car start!" but the car wouldn't start...

Funny, a couple hours later, when I went out there with the key....it starts just fine!

These excuses are usually reserved for Monday so the employee can have a nice, long weekend. Fridays are no good because that's often payday.

It's dark and cold and I don't want to get out of bed... can relate to that
Rain.
Now there's an excuse I've used for being late for work... and always got away with it... even if it didn't effect my time keeping in the slightest :)
Might go all out oneday and use it as a phone in sick excuse

When I was a kid, I worked part time for the post office. One night I called my supervisor and told him I couldn't come in because I had diphtheria, and that I'd be in tomorrow.
