    2.The cat unplugged my alarm clock.
    3.My bull is running lose.I gotta go find him..Good for a farmer
    4.My dog ran away! I got to find him/her before the dog catcher does.
    5.My pet snake ate my car keys
    6.I can't find my car keys.
    7.I fell out of bed last night and hurt my arm
    8.My husband/wife is lost..I gotta go find him/her
    9.My neighbor cut his tree down last night and its blocking my drive way
    10.Is it MONDAY already?? I didn't know that!
    11.My front door won't lock..I need to call a locksmith
    12.A drunk passed out on my front door..I am waiting for the Police to remove said drunk.So I won't be in.
    13.My husband left me..I gotta go and drag him back

    I used to call in "well" occasionally when I just felt too good to go to work.

    And don't forget....

    I can't find my contact lens - it's on the floor somewhere.
    A pipe burst and the whole house is flooded.
    Someone stole my car.
    Today is a religious holiday for me.
    So is tomorrow.
    And the next day.

    My boss can't fire me, if he did he couldnt take off as much as he does. :curse: ( yesterday was my first vacation day in over 2 years ). Actually I like it when he calls in. :D

    Andy, why the move,? run out of excuses for the boss,so its time to get a new job, and boss. Then you can start the list off again.... have a great time in your new home ...steve
