Top Ten Reasons Why I'm Late!

Whilst trying to come up with a possible topic for a blog based on self-imposed or regulatory restrictions surrounding information I could blog, it was suggested that an interesting and amusing read may be the top ten reasons for being late to work.
A quick bit of research showed numerous blogs on this subject already unsurprisingly, however interestingly one had a note to the effect that “this is supposed to be a light-hearted look at the excuses used by employees, when arriving late for work – and that no excuse is recommended but perhaps a course in time management may be needed!”  Good point particularly in this pro-litigation society we live in!

Whilst most of us cannot compete with some of the potential extreme examples found, they are quite unbelievable, would anyone really use them as I am sure all would make the headlines exposing a fraudulent excuse very quickly!?

  • Attacked by a swarm of bees
  • Escaped lion roaming the streets
  • Confined to home due to a terrorist alert

On the other hand classic excuses include:

  • Stopped to help someone (aaaaah, there are some nice people out there)
  • Lost Keys
  • Fell asleep late and couldn’t wake up
  • Alarm didn’t go off
  • Ran out of fuel

Can you believe some people even cite wet washing as an excuse for being late – well you can’t go to work in wet clothes now can you??

So to conclude this brief blog, how do you think we at DSCallards rate for variety!?

  1. Flight was late getting in
  2. Sent text explaining to……
  3. Stuck in traffic following an accident
  4. Had to queue at petrol station for fuel
  5. Forgot to change clocks
  6. Fog
  7. Snow
  8. Courtesy car didn’t have any fuel in it
  9. Waiting for a plumber
  10. Overslept
Not bad eh?  Whilst some may not be very remarkable, they are all ours ….. I’m off to find the beast of Dartmoor, I’ll be back to work in a couple of days, wait for the text!
