A new survey by Careerbuilder reveals that 29% of people come into work late at least once a month which is up from 25% last year.

Here are the most outrageous excuses for being late to work:

  • I forgot it wasn't the weekend.
  • I put petroleum jelly in my eyes.
  • I had to watch a soccer game that was being played in Europe.
  • I thought Flag Day was a legal holiday.
  • My pet turtle needed to visit the exotic animal clinic.
  • The wind blew the deck off my house.
  • I overslept because my kids changed all the clocks in the house.
  • I was cornered by a moose.
  • My mother locked me in the closet.
  • The pizza I ordered was late being delivered, and I had to be home to accept/pay for it.
  • The sunrise was so beautiful that I had to stop and take it in.
  • My mother-in-law wouldn't stop talking.
  • My dad offered to make a me a grilled cheese sandwich, and I couldn't say no.

I can't say I used one of these excuses before. Have you made up an outrageous excuse or had an outrageous excuse that was true?!
