Excuses For Being Late

Introduction:Even the best employee has times with they are running late. Sometime you need to come up with excuses to get out of trouble with your boss. Here are some excuses that should help.

  • 01

    Alarm Clock

    Oh, No! The dog ate the alarm clock again. Ok, this may not go over well. People do, once in a great while, have the alarm clock go wonky. Either from the time changing, power going out, or time for a new alarm clock there are real reasons why an alarm clock can make you late.

  • 02

    Car Trouble

    This can happen to anyone out of the blue. Driving down the road and the car just stopped. This works well until someone asks you what the problem was and how much it had cost to get fixed. Be prepared with a full story.

  • 03

    Accident

    Already got a banged up car? No one will notice if you claim someone else hit you. Better yet, you witnessed and accident and had to wait for the police to arrive. Be careful with this one as some cities list all there accidents and police reports in the paper, while large cities don't have the time or room to report everything to the local newspaper.

  • 04

    Bathroom Trouble

    Uh, OH! You had to spend extra time sitting on the potty and couldn't leave on time for work. This is a good one as everyone has experienced waking up to diarrhea. You got stuck on the potty and took some medicine but had to wait for the medicine to take effect. The boss will be happy that you are just late and didn't call in.

  • 05

    Traffic Jams

    Not all traffic jams are excusable, because if you live in a place that is common to get traffic jams then you should leave early enough to get through it. When a surprise traffic jam happens for accident, down trees, and many other reasons then traffic jams is the perfect excuse for being late as they couldn't have been helped.




Final Thoughts

Being late is never good news for your job, but sometimes it is hard to avoid. When the truth just won't help the situation any sometime an excuse is the only way out of getting into more trouble with the bosses. Being late all the time is very bad and can cause you to lose your job.
