It’s hard to make up an excuse to not work when you work from home, it’s not like you can really be too sick to be at home. A recent study has found that 1-in-4 workers admit to making up fake excuses for arriving to work late.

The study says that more than 32% of workers blame traffic when they are late while 17% blamed it on falling back asleep. Part of the survey asked for the most unusual excuses for getting to work late and some of the excuses are downright stupid and the people deserve to get fired for at least not making up a better lie.

The top ten dumbest excuses for being late to work are:

  1. While rowing across the river to work, I got lost in the fog.
  2. Someone stole all my daffodils.
  3. I had to go audition for American Idol.
  4. My ex-husband stole my car so I couldn't drive to work.
  5. My route to work was shut down by a Presidential motorcade.
  6. I wasn't thinking and accidentally went to my old job.
  7. I was indicted for securities fraud this morning.
  8. The line was too long at Starbucks.
  9. I was trying to get my gun back from the police.
  10. I didn't have money for gas because all of the pawn shops were closed.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
