Funny! Actually, my dad used almost that same one last month. My mom has brain cancer, and between the seizures, chemo/meds, and loss of actual matter from surgery, she gets confused easily. She woke up saying she didn't know where she was. He wasn't about to go to work and leave her alone. So he called in. She also frequently can't remember what the other rooms in the house look like. Amazingly, she has a good attitude and knows what she should/shouldn't do and just kinda rolls with the days now.I just heard this one today:
Everything in this room doesn't look familiar. If I can find my car and I don't get sick, I'll be in later on.
What's the best one you've heard?
Best one I have heard is: "Can't come to work, 'cause my butt is bleeding". Sounds pretty foolproof, I don't think anyone would ask you to elaborate.
Hi, I can't come in....................ever again. lolThe best one I ever heard Was when I worked at G.M. These 4 millwrights hit the lotto. they got like 3 mil each after it was all over & done with. One guy on afternoons. was listening to the news on his radio. And heard the numbers. Checked his copy of the ticket. Well about 2 hrs later. His boss was asking everyone where he was. No one knew. One guy when out to see if he was in his truck. Came back in and said. Ya know what. I parked next to him when we came in tonight. the only thing there is his work boots. His truck is gone. The next morning the other guys called in said they couldn't make it in. Well You have to give an excuse when you call in. So they told the sec that answered the phone was they hit the lotto. All she said was I understand!! No one ever saw them guys at work again. they left their tool boxes , clothes, Can't blame them. Now that the best one I ever heard!
Funny... that's actually almost exactly what a guy at the office said when he quit. He called and said: "I'm not coming in today.... Well, you know, as a matter of fact, I will never come in again. Bye."Hi, I can't come in....................ever again. lol
Michael "...it's red and swollen."I can't wait to use the one from "The Office"...
"Uhm, yeah, I can't come into work because I burned my foot on my George Forman grill this morning...."
You gotta watch "The Office" for the explaination....I am LMAO thinking about it.
