    well, thats no excuse!!

    We'll see if this works...

    What is the worst excuse you've ever heard? It can be for anything, and, it HAS to be a stupid excuse.

    What have you heard?

    A troublesome employee, who already had a history of not showing up for work and not calling in, took 2 days off, without calling in again.
    When he returned to work that Wednesday, naturally he knew he'd have to come to my office and explain his absence, his excuse was "My goldfish had an abcessed tooth and I had to carry him to the dentist".
    I told him to go home and don't come back without a letter from this dentist.
    My problems with him were solved, but, I have to admit he was quite a clever liar.

    Similar...
    An employee showed up late. The boss asked why. The employee said " I took a dump this morning and my****** would not close, so I showed up late" needless to say, he was fired and is now probably living off of our money....

    Btw, one of my friends told me this, but it is still a stupid excuse

    Having had been in management for the best part of my career, I believe I've heard near 'bout every excuse under the stars, at some point.
    I even had a brand new employee show up an hour or two late the first 3 days of his employment. His excuse? "His car keys needed daylight to shine on them before they would stiffen-up enough to work the ignition switch in his car".
    He was easy to let go.......

    This is more funny than stupid, but thought I would share.

    I have a stick, about 2 foot long; about 1/2 inch in diameter, 2 foot long with a small branch at the end at about a 45 degree angle...I call it my BBQ stick, and I use it to rearrange the coals and wood chips in my BBQ grill and my smoker. I went out one morning, and found it lying on the patio broken in two pieces. I knew my 6 year old Grandson had been out there playing, so I rounded him up and asked him directly:

    "Jarrett, I found my BBQ stick broken. Who do you think broke it?"

    He replied, without hesitation, "It was a T-Rex!"

    Quite possible, as "T-Rex's" have been known to roam the plains of Oklahoma on dark nights.

    I had an employee claim he did not know he had to actually show up for work.

    We fired him, he applied for unemployment. When I was contacted by GA DOL he stated to them he was never told he had to show up for work. The lady doing the "investigation" asked me; "did you tell him showing up for work was a condition of his employment"? I lost it.
