Looking For An Excuse To Call Out Of Work?

These are REAL excuses people have tried to use to get out of work.  It's not clear how many actually worked.

1.  My sister got kidnapped and I have to go find her.

2.  I gave up my plane seat to an elderly person and can't get back for a few days.

3.  My dog didn't wake me up.

4.  There's a snake on my porch so I can't leave the house.

5.  I have to stay out sick because of sympathetic pregnancy. Tha't when a GUY experiences a few of his wife's pregnancy symptoms.  

6. My wife got a bad dye job and I have to stay home to provide moral support.

7.  My dog hid my car keys.

8.  Martians kidnapped my boyfriend and I have to rescue him.
