Whether coming in late or missing the day entirely, some employees get pretty creative in their explanation for their absence. Whether it's the crazy truth or an elaborate lie, workers and bosses alike share some of the most insane reasons they've ever heard for why someone was late or couldn't come into work.

His Legacy Lives On 20 Years Later.
1. His Legacy Lives On 20 Years Later.

"In my office there was an employee who was fired 20 years ago, but his excuses for being late or staying home still live on. He had dozens of dead relatives, and multiple ongoing problems with his car. He even was late one day because he backed up over a cat and was too upset to drive. But I think my favorite one was when he was waxing his kitchen floor, and waxed himself into a corner. Apparently he had to stand there for an hour until the wax dried. I've never met him but I feel that I know him well from his excuses. Just the other day, I woke up after a windstorm overnight to find my dead end street completely blocked by a downed tree. I emailed my excuse for being late to my boss. Her joking reply-'You sound just like [fibbing ex-employee].' Even 20 years later his legend remains" (Source).
