    So after skipping work due to a huge project that went wrong in as many ways as possible the other day, I got to wondering.. what was your last excuse to skip work? What was the best one?

    I can't remember the excuse, but one time (quite a long time ago) I called in sick so I could go to a triple A baseball game with my best friend and her boyfriend and his family. It was awesome. :)

    "I don't know what I want to be"

    That one lasted five years.

    Just last week I called in with a "Plumbing emergency". I tried to do some plumbing work on my house one night and I gave up after about 5 tries. I couldn't get the pipes back together without them leaking or spraying everywhere. I needed to take the next day off, hit Home Depot a few times and replace a lot more pipe than I wanted to.

    Of course, I probably should have just gone to work and hired a plumber...that would have been more cost effective. :roll:

    When I'd get called into work: "I didn't hear the phone" (real meaning: I turned the ringer off)

    I pretty much told the truth if I needed a day off. I gave them advance notice.

    I know ive called in sick once or twice to take the ngiht off saying I didn't feel well. Usually when I do it, it's true.
