Crazy excuses... and quite possibly ALL true!

Crazy Excuses for Being Late to Work

After surveying hiring managers, online site CareerBuilder released some of the craziest excuses they reported hearing from employees this past year for why they arrived to work late. They include:

  • Dropped her purse into a coin-operated newspaper box and couldn't get it back because her change was in the purse.
  • Accidentally left the apartment with his roommate's girlfriend's shoes on and had to back to change.
  • Angry wife had frozen his truck keys in a glass of water in the freezer.
  • Got late start because she was putting a raincoat on her cement duck in her front yard because rain was expected.
  • Car wouldn't start because the Breathalyzer showed he was intoxicated.
  • Attempted to cut his own hair before work and the clippers stopped working, so he had to wait for the barbershop to open to fix his hair.
  • Bear attacked his car (had photographic evidence).
  • Drove to her previous employer by mistake.
  • Delivered a stranger's baby on the side of the highway.

I'm sure this "pastor" made God sad.

Waitress Fired After Posting Receipt Online with Tip Complaint from Pastor

A St. Louis-area Applebee's waitress was fired on Wednesday (January 30th) after she posted a receipt online that had a note from a patron, who turned out to be a pastor, complaining about the automatic 18 percent tip that was added to the bill. The pastor, Alois Bell, found out about it and complained to waitress Chelsea Welch's manager, who fired her. Bell's restaurant bill had the tip automatically added because there were more than eight people in her party. She scratched out the automatic tip and put in a "0" where any additional tip would go, writing, "I give God 10%. Why do you get 18?" Welch took a photo of the bill from a fellow server and posted it on the website Reddit. She told, "I think the note was insulting, but also comical. And I thought other users would find it entertaining." But Bell got wind of it and complained, saying it had ruined her reputation. She told The Smoking Gun website, "[It was] a lapse in my character and judgment. . . . I've brought embarrassment to my church and ministry." Applebee's said it apologized to Bell for violating her right to privacy. But Welch told Yahoo! News, "I had no intention of starting a witch hunt or hurting anyone. I just wanted to share a picture I found interesting." She also doesn't buy that Bell's embarrassed, saying, "If this person wrote the note, obviously they wanted it seen by someone."
