Truthful Tuesday

Today I chuckle at Elizabeth's question for Truthful Tuesday....

What's the best excuse you ever used to get out of an obligation like work, school, or chores...

And did you get away with it?

Back in my working days I had a plethora of excuses that would get me out of my shift at work...I used to work at a grocery store....first as a cashier for 6 years and then as a front end manager. Once I got the manager's job, my excuses dwindled as I knew how small our dept was....stupid responsibility!! lol Plus...I'd have to cover for the cashiers who called in THEIR excuses!!!! Double edged sword then!

But my absolute fave excuse was "I have diarrhea"....why? Because when you're a cashier, you're standing at a register...you can't be running off to the bathroom whenever nature dictates!!! And, you didn't need a doctor's note....and you didn't have to prove it!

Now, I have no excuses for my job! Mom is a 24 hour business!!

Join in the fun of a blog carnival!!!

  1. I used to be a lifeguard, and let's just say "bodily fluid" issues where a top excuse for that group, too!
