Monday fun – 10 excuses for being late…

I was a little late for work this morning, tut tut and although my reason was genuine, at least 16% of the working population admit to rolling into the office late at least once a week. Of course there are the usual suspects up there in the top 10 with 33% claiming “traffic”, 24% go with “lack of sleep” and around 10% citing “childcare issues”, I wanted something a little more amusing on a Monday morning, so here are my 10 favourite made up excuses you may or may not want to try!!

  1. I feel like I’m in everyone’s way if I show up on time.
  2. My left turn indicator wasn’t working so I had to make all right turns to get to work.
  3. My husband thinks it’s funny to hide my car keys before he goes to work.
  4. I wasn’t late. I just failed to be on time.
  5. I got distracted watching The Jeremy Kyle Show!
  6. I did a really hard aerobics class last night and I couldn’t move my legs when my alarm went off this morning.
  7. I lost my glasses and got on the wrong bus.
  8. I forgot it was Monday.
  9. I was at a job interview.
  10. A hamster got stuck under my accelerator pedal.

But a good rule of thumb is, DON’T BE LATE! and if you are be honest!!

Happy Monday…
