My daughter, who works at Arby’s Fast food restaurant, called me shortly after arriving at work. She told me how she will be home earlier tonight for Arby’s was closed. She said that the toilets exploded! She was helping them clean up and then she would be home. Anxious to know what exactly she meant by “exploded” but in the meantime it got me thinking.
If you have been a manager at a job what is the craziest excuse you have ever heard as to why someone couldn’t come to work? Or a crazy thing that happened at work?
What is something that sounded like a crazy excuse, but was true as to why you couldn’t come to work?
My husband had a very legitimate excuse one time. It was due to very bad weather. A snow storm in fact. We had been out of state and were traveling home and a freak snowstorm came causing a complete whiteout!
One of those times that I really didn’t know if we would make it off the interstate alive. You could not see the lines on the road. It was awful! We got off the exit and took the last hotel room!
The problem….we were on our way back from our Honeymoon! Sooo…claiming there was a snowstorm that just made us have to get a hotel room may have sounded a little fishy. But it really was true. 🙂
