That is just one way to call in ill to work If you are ill or if you want to play hooky. Here is a look at some really outlandish and laughable excuses that people have used in the past. There are volumes of wild, stupid, and idiotic excuses, this is just a handful. We take no responsibility if you use any of these and get caught!
Employee’s finger was stuck in a bowling ball.
Yes, I think you will need a dr’s note for that one, unless of course you are the bowling ball.
Employee had to mow the lawn to avoid a lawsuit from the home owner’s association.
This way you can make cutting the lawn on Saturday a Monday or Tuesday experience. If you find a pair of panties like this, then mowing the lawn could be a real pleasure.
I burnt my tongue on pumpkin pie and can’t make it into work.
I guess you can’t talk if your tongue is burnt.
I Lost my teeth
When you hire the elderly or the younger crowd sometimes you have to expect these delays and sick day excuses.

My kid unplugged my alarm because he wanted me to sleep in
Now that is creative, of course, make sure you have children before using that line.
If you use this excuse be sure to pick up a notice from a funeral home somewhere to show at work.
My Pet Rock Died
I have to stay home and add him to the stone garden. Might work…who knows.
This will get you 1-5 days or a pink slip. I recommend using this as a last resort unless your boss loves marriage and romance.
