The Following Excuse to Skip Work May Not Work as Well as the One Above 

This was a story reported in the Associated Press on Saturday, March. 1, 2008

PASCO, Washington - Sheriff's detectives in Franklin County said a man had his friend shoot him in the shoulder so he wouldn't have to go to work.

When he first spoke with deputies, Daniel Kuch told them he'd been the victim of a drive-by shooting while he was jogging Thursday. But detectives said Kuch later acknowledged that he asked a friend to shoot him so he could get some time off work and avoid a drug test.

The friend had been arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment. Kuch was expected to be charged with false reporting.

Top-10 Excuses to Skip Work 

  • Sorry Boss. I can't come into work today - my spiritual guide says work is for losers!

  • It was such a lovely day that I thought it would be a pity to get up.

  • I have to take two or three days off work to read the international bestseller The Joy of Not Working by Ernie Zelinski. Someone said that this is their second favorite book after the Bible.

  • Working hard ain't what it's cracked up to be. It's just worry and worry, and sweat and sweat, and a-wishing you was dead all the time.

  • I don’t like the smell of the office.

  •  I am over-employed.

  • I don’t like to use a computer.

  • I am making too much money and don’t feel that I am worth it.

  • My co-workers aren't exciting enough.

  • I don’t like the lighting in the building.

Of course you can generate more serious real excuses to skip more if you use your creativity and you work at it. Looking at quotes about work and the workplace and sayings about work may help.

 10 More Excuses to Skip Work 

  • I stayed home to commit suicide by sticking my head in the oven, but there was a cake in the oven, so I didn't do it.

  • There is something wrong with my eyesight. I can't see going to work.

  • I was starting to enjoy my job. I read somewhere that "The more you enjoy something, the worse it is for you." So I will skip work for this reason.

  • I had nothing to complain about today and a guy by the name of Kranske said, "Beware of a day during which you don't have something to complain about."

  • I felt that I was in a hole. As the adage says, "If you are in a hole, stop digging."

  • I am a problem solver. What's the use of being at work? Einstein said, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used to create them."

  • My boss believes he is a master. Sit at the feet of the master long enough and they start to smell.

  • Freedom is where it's at, baby.

  • I like to be happy and happiness is not good for work.

  • If you have work to do, and put it off long enough, chances are that some other employee will do it for you.
