The Top 10 Worst Call Out Excuses

Unless you have a job that doesn’t require actual work (porn star, executioner, congressman, pop star….professional athlete (kidding, slash not), reporting to work in the morning is on par with getting your nail ripped off: painful and difficult to recover from.

What most employers fail to realize that their drones do, in fact, have a life outside of their 4x4x4 cubicle and no, they will not come skipping into the office, breaking into song and whistling while they toil. So whilst your boss is rewriting your job manual for the third time this week, you can extricate yourself from yet one more day of doing his job for him….or at least try to.

Wow, these are really lousy.

    I Woke Up Late and Figured It Was Too Late To Come In

    We’ve all done this. Supposed to report for work at 8am and the alarm maybe didn’t go off on time. You wake up at 10am, figure your boss goes to lunch at 11am or noon, so you wait until then and THEN call in. By that time, they won’t get that message until around 1pm and by then, well, it’s too late. Yes, I've turned this into an exact science.

    "Do YOU want to be the one to tell her that I didn’t listen to her and did what I please instead? I didn’t think so."

  3. 3

    I'm Suffering From Amnesia and Just Wondered What This Number Was

    "Are you sure? Really? I don’t really remember who I am but I’m pretty positive you're sitting in my office and that I'm off today."

    My Therapist Advises Against It

    "I’m exercising my right to say no. NO."

    Al Roker Says It's a Snow Day

    Just don’t do this on a sunny day…. with clear skies…in Los Angeles.

  6. 6

    I’m Suffering From Coccygodynia

    I advise this technique only if you DON’T work in a doctors’ office.

  7. 7

    I'm Clinically Depressed and Will Only Bring Everyone Else Down

    "Well, given that it’s Thursday, I’m pretty sure it won’t clear up until Monday. I’m doing this for ALL of us and I’m almost positive I have extra mental health days stored away. Check my file."

  8. 8

    Power Outage

    "Well, Big Guy, my electric hybrid is dead...No, I don’t have a bus pass and I refuse to use my daughters’ tricycle."

  9. 9

    Someone Stole My Car

    This will only work as long as your boss doesn’t ask for a copy of the police report. And make sure you have a vehicle worth stealing - it won't do you any good if you've gone to lunch together in your 1984 Ford Taurus.

  10. 10

    My Street is being Repaved

    If you’re going to use this excuse, make sure you don’t list off a major boulevard, otherwise your boss (assuming they are lucid) will pull it up on and bust your ass.
