Sure we all make excuses as to why we are late, why we don't want to go to a lunch meeting or why we are sick and not coming in. Some are real, some are really dumb. Here the Top 10 Dumbest::

  1. "My mom just died" . . . from an employee who'd used that excuse once before.
  2. "My girlfriend bit me in a 'sensitive' place."
  3. "I'm stuck in the house because the door is broken."
  4. "I hurt myself during sex."
  5. "The dog ate my shoes."
  6. "My pants split on the way to work."
  7. "I'm taking a bath and my toe is caught in the faucet."
  8. "I drank too much and fell asleep on someone's floor, but I don't know where I am."
  9. "I dyed my hair the wrong color."
  10. "My dog is scared and I don't want to leave him.".
