Craziest excuses for calling in sick
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- One employee said she couldn't come to work because her dog was having a nervous breakdown. Another said he forgot he'd been hired. A third was upset after watching The Hunger Games.None of those are what I'd consider crazy, just kinda stupid. I was expecting excuses like "I was sold into a white slavery ring. I'll be in on Monday" or "There's a van parked outside my house with 'Flowers By Irene' on the side". A dog having a nervous breakdown? Meh. I've heard of someone calling in sick because their kids' guinea pig passed on and they were holding services; that's at least as "crazy" as a harried hound...
What's the craziest excuse you've ever heard (or used!) for calling in sick to work?
That is all.
