Excuses:1




So ever heard of some stupid excuses? Life is strange and sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. The reasons are real but they come across as stupid excuses.

Here is one....

I am not making this conversation up. We were watching a football game at home and a kiddo I've known since he was in kindergarten showed up. He is 21 years old now.

Me: Hey H! Thought you were going to be at work today.
H: Yeah but the button on my shorts snapped and my shorts kept falling off. So I had to leave work.
Me: Did you change before you came here?
H: No there was not enough time. The game was about to start.
Me: Hmm...

Ever heard an excuse that sounded way off? Do tell! The inquiring minds want to know...

Funny Story. Sounds like our son, He tells us he didn't need to feed the dog because he noticed the dog over ate the day before.

Jodi said...

LOL That is funny. I wish I could come up with an funny excuse because I do have some that were told to me, I just can't think of it now.

Hope you are having a great day my friend.
Hugs to you!!! :)

Oh that's great. The Hubs is the king of all excuses for calling in "sick" to work. He can never just say he is sick no, no, no. He has "fallen" off the roof, played football and gotten a tooth "knocked" out(um ya, didn't think about this one and had to wear braces wax to work for two weeks so he wouldn't get caught). If it is crazy he has used it, lol!

Jessica Rabbit, the sultry and voluptuous cartoon diva in the film, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", says, "I'm not really bad, I was just drawn that way."

Unfortunately, I can never come up with credible excuses. But, I'm bookmarking this post, so that I learn... fast!

I knew someone who could not own up to his own careless mistakes...and so, when tilting his chair back on its two hind legs, he fell and hit his head on the wall. He took no ownership of the incident, but instead said, " The chair tilted back too far, and the wall hit me in the head!" as though he was an innocent victim of a mugging by the wall and chair.

Nicole: Yeah we spend too much time on the internets:) And with our camera. What else is there? LOL.

Joe: Too cute about your son. Maybe he'll grow up and become a lawyer? Ugh. Both my boys want to become one. Double ugh:)

Jodi: Once I was late to a meeting because I was covering up a huge zit that popped out of nowhere in the middle of the day. I said something to the effect, "sorry I was late. I was preparing for the meeting:)" And it wasn't a lie. Hugs my friend!

Betty: Thank you! Yeah I can tell that you would a problem with that:) I'll try to get some stories out of Joe:)

MM: Lol at your hubby. Too funny!

Mytho: Loved that movie! I had forgotten that line. Thanks for reminding me:)

Blogitse: Yes I know exactly what you mean:)

Sauron: Come on! Surely you made one up?:)
