offers up another list with “wacky” in the title.  For web purposes, wacky is a euphemism for link bait, but I’ll bite.  The list is comprised of the most unusual excuses provided by employees for being late.

    1. While rowing across the river to work, I got lost in the fog.
    2. Someone stole all my daffodils.
    3. I had to go audition for American Idol.
    4. My ex-husband stole my car so I couldn’t drive to work.
    5. My route to work was shut down by a Presidential motorcade.
    6. I wasn’t thinking and accidentally went to my old job.
    7. I was indicted for securities fraud this morning.
    8. The line was too long at Starbucks.
    9. I was trying to get my gun back from the police.
    10. I didn’t have money for gas because all of the pawn shops were closed.

As a manager, I would find #8 completely acceptable.
