Need an excuse for missing work? These are actual excuses that have been tried (not sure if they worked...but still):

  1. My sister got kidnapped and I have to go find her.

  2. I gave up my plane seat to an elderly person and can't get back for a few days.

  3. My dog didn't wake me up.

  4. There's a snake on my porch so I can't leave the house.

  5. I have to stay out sick because of a sympathetic pregnancy. That's when a GUY experiences a few of his wife's pregnancy symptoms. Or when ANYONE close to someone who's pregnant has a few mild symptoms.

  6. My wife got a bad dye job and I have to stay home to provide moral support.

  7. My dog hid my car keys.

  8. I had to stay home to prepare for the zombie apocalypse.

  9. Martians kidnapped my boyfriend and I have to rescue him.

  10. I'm having trouble with my prostate . . . and the person who used the excuse was a WOMAN.
