'Sickie' Excuses
Many years ago, one of my staff phoned in sick:-

Worker "Boss, I can't get in to work today 'cos I can't get my car started"

Me " You live just 300 yards from the depot, walk in"

Worker, "But that means I'll have to walk home in the dark!" ( He's 26, married, with 3 kids )

Me "Your choice mate, walk to the depot, or when you get the car sorted, drive to the Job Centre"

Funny, he clocked-on in time to start his shift with 3 minutes to spare.
 
'Sickie' Excuses
I had a friend who worked in the tax office in London.
One of the best excuses one of his colleagues used was...
"I can't come in because I am sexually aroused and cannot get my trousers on".
Needless to say the girls in the office looked at him in a new light after that one!
