Long ago, I called my boss in the morning:
"Hi boss, sorry to call you at this time, but I need to inform you that I will be late today for a few hours. This morning, when I opened up the garage, there was a guy lying there blocking the drive way. I yelled but he didn't wake up so I called the police. When the officers could not wake him up, they turned the guy over and noticed he had 5 gunshot wounds. They check for pulse and there was none... the guy is dead. Now they can't move him and I have to wait for CSI to come over, take pictures, look around, etc. So I'm stock here. And I can't take the bus either because since I was the one who found the body, the officers told me to stay home and wait to be interviewed by the CSI team."
So, tell your unbelievable excuses for showing up late @ work... regardless if they were true or not.
