"Sorry I'm late boss"

Well, was late for work today... just a suggestion, but if you're over 70, and it's been twenty plus years since you drove stick... DON'T BORROW YOUR FRIEND'S CAR IF IT'S A STANDARD!

That made for an interesting excuse for being late today... "Sorry I'm late boss, but I had to help an older lady who was stranded in the middle lane of one of the busiest streets in town!" He just laughed... I guess that means he accepted my excused.

What funny excuses (true or otherwise) have you heard for being late?

A great one I heard from a friend of mine... kid in highschool shows up late for class, and the teacher asks him why he's late... kid responds without hesitation, "Sorry sir, but I had to save a bunch of Girl Guides from a burning cookie factory." Teacher, "Sit down." (normally he'd have to go get a note from the office, but the teacher let him off with that quick reply!)

    I gave my retiring OAC English teacher the best excuse he had heard for being late in his almost 30 year teaching career:

    "Sorry Sir, I was over deleting the pornography off of the computers at the alternate school, but I do have a note from Mr. Spence to confirm this!"

    (The alternate school was for students with big behavioural disabilities or other problems, I'm not sure if the public board has these schools like the separate board does).

    He didn't want to see the note; Once he stopped laughing he allowed me to be excused from class for making him laugh so hard.
