I forgot it Wasn’t the Weekend!


CareerBuilder is an international recruitment agency with subsidiaries in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. According to a recent survey of theirs, more than 1 in 4 workers come to work late at least once a month and these are some of the popular excuses, the survey exposed.

  • 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 me a grilled cheese sandwich, and I couldn’t say no.

As is often the case with information such as this, one is left with more questions than answers: Who are these people, who is it that employs them and most curiously, who helps them tie their shoelaces in the morning?
