Weirdest Excuses for Being Late to Work

A new survey by AccounTemps finds 58% of workers say they're occasionally late for work while 7% admit they're always late.  And yes, there are some times where folks have a good excuse for being late, but on a lot of occasions people come up with some really oddball reasons why they couldn’t make it into the office on time. Lucky for us, some CFOs are sharing the strangest excuses they’ve heard. They include: 

  • "I drove to my old job out of habit."
  • "I thought I was still on vacation."
  • "I had nothing to wear."
  • "I thought it was Saturday."
  • My hair got caught in a fan."
  • "I super-glued my eye thinking it was contact solution."
  • "Geese chased me on my way to the car."
  • My cat delivered its litter of kittens."
  • "Someone spilled their coffee all over me on the way to work."
  • "I was stuck in an elevator with a kid that pushed the buttons for all of the floors."
  • A truck full of fish flipped over on the highway."
  • "My dog ate my car keys."
  • "I got locked in the gas station restroom and had to wait for someone to get me out."
