12 Valid reasons not to come to work

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Broker Owner (The Watz Team)

1. I can't come in to work today because I'll be stalking my previous
Broker, who fired me for not showing up for work. OK?

2. When I got up this morning, I took two Ex-lax in addition to my Prozac.
I can't get off the john, but I feel good about it.    

3. My mother-in-law has come back as one of the Undead and we must track 
her to her coffin to drive a stake through her heart and give her eternal 
peace. One day should do it.


4. I can't come to work today because the EPA has determined that my house
is completely surrounded by wetlands and I have to arrange for helicopter 
transportation.

5. If it is all the same to you I won't be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.

6. I have a rare case of 48-hour projectile leprosy, but I know we have
that deadline to meet....
 
 7. I am stuck in the blood pressure machine down at Tom Thumb.
 
 8. Yes, I seem to have contracted some attention-deficit disorder and,
 hey, how about them Skins, huh? So, I won't be able to, yes, could I help
 you? No, no, I'll be sticking with Sprint, but thank you for calling.


 9. Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.
 
 10. I just found out that I was switched at birth. Legally, I shouldn't 
  come to work knowing my employee records may now contain false 
  information.
 
 11. The psychiatrist said it was an excellent session. He even gave me 
  this jaw restraint so I won't bite things when I am startled.


 12. The dog ate my car keys. We're going to hitchhike to the vet.

So... although I'm guessing a humerous post... it does contain a valid point. We need to be at the office working. Even though some are "slow," progress isn't made laying around picking your nose ;)

No Kim I cant say I've had that pleasure yet.  All though I have heard a lot of lame a@@ excuses!  I love the ones that think I forget...My grandmother is really sick..hmm didn't you bury her 2 months ago?  OMG! They get so caught up in their own lies, they forget which ones they have told you.

Thanks Shane!

It seems old age gets us all in the end.  Also lost my sisters horse last year.  I was caring for him because she had moved to NE.  He was 33 years old and died of a heart attack.  It's like loseing a member of your family.  THanks for asking my friend. :)
