Loving this thread! Lots of funny stories! I usually just try to tell the truth...sometimes it gets me in trouble, but being caught in a lie always results in much more trouble.
Btw...I love how you all are ripping into Tact for this post when I haven't seen anything from him stating that he was posting that from work while on the clock. It appears some of you are making pretty big assumptions...and you know what happens when you assume something...

Interesting.... an opportunity to discuss productivity and excuses for the lack there-of.
Here is a video that I try to share with others when I am given any excuse to do so. And I try to watch it at least once a week so that I can stay motivated.
I hope this works...its my first attempt to imbed a video.
That video was made in 2007....which means the data is 3 years old. In terms of "Information", it might as well be written on papyrus paper (meaning its out-dated).

I have used "Bubble Guts" as an excuse for being late to a meeting. They did not even ask any other questions.

Try dealing with the Chrysler dealer in Price UT...then you will hear excuses they must be the most incompetent people to ever run a dealership. Son's truck has been there for warranty issues for a month. So a rear main takes that long to fix, yeah' right #%$@*! er's

|biffman||This is perfect, can anybody help me come up with a good excuse to keep missing my 8 am Monday morning meeting? I missed this week and the only thing I could come up with was that I forgot, which actually is the truth but sounds lamer then a good excuse.|

seriously, get used to it. the longer you work and the higher you climb, the worse it gets. some of the best coworkers i've had were guys who break their backs and sweat buckets in a warehouse in the middle of summer, while making chicken scratch.

|Gate53||Years ago I had a guy working for me who had missed 17 Fridays in a row. I called him in (due to pressure from HR) to write him up. I asked him, " Joe, why do you only work four days a week?" His reply was, "I have to have 4 days pay to pay all my bills if you would give me a raise I could only work three." I was so suprised by the reply that I didn't even write him up. LOL|

|burton160w||I usually like to go with some elaborate stories for why I was late or why I need to take off... my last one was that they found black mold in my new apartment and I need to take the day off to meet with the landlord and figure out if we're going to stay or have to find a new apartment in the next week.|

|JDsDream||I was going to post a reply, but I have so many other things to do right now, I just can't get to it. Someone let the cat out, my shoelace is tied in a knot, the dog ate my driver's license, it's Monday..............|

I don't make up excuses. I tell my boss like it is.
"Tim, why did you only make 10 parts all day yesterday?"
--well it was Friday, I like to take it easy on Friday.
--my machine is a piece of sh*t that I spend more time fixing than running...you know that!
--I ate taco bell so I was in the bathroom 3 times.
and my latest excuse for calling off my 2nd week in a row...
look, I had a cyst on my tailbone the size of a fist. I can't sit, and I'm bleeding constantly. if you can figure out a way I can get there without sitting down and avoiding this biological nightmare on my a**, be my guest

|nick50471||So you are complaining about why people make excuses about not doing work, while you are posting a thread on WF?|
