As an agency specializing in people, we have heard the gamut in excuses. We aren’t talking about your often joked about “the dog ate my homework” type of excuse. The tales we have heard over phone and email are enough to make you move happy hour to noon! So grab your flask and mix a martini, here are our top 5 favorite excuses for not making it into work:

5.  I need to leave the country immediately to have my kidney replaced, because I can’t afford it here

4. I was horse-sitting and the horses got loose

3. I rolled down a hill and am too sore to get out of bed

2. I forgot I was getting married today

1. I needed to fake my kidnapping because I felt unappreciated in my marriage


What is the craziest excuse you have ever heard… or used?
