March Madness is 10 days away and now is the time to get your excuses in line to get out of work on March 20 and 21 to watch the two best days in sports. The old "24 hour flu" excuse won't cut it this years so please allow the FlyMaster to come up with some excuses that will keep the workplace off your back for two days. Please help each other out and spread the love, so we can all get a couple days off.
"My son's cub scout troop is going on a camping trip this weekend and I'm chaperoning."
Kids are always great scapegoats.
"My girlfriend's parents are coming into town and I'm going to pop the question. I really need to take Thursday and Friday to meet my new family."
This is a risky excuse because you may actually have to get married to the girl (if she exists). Be careful with this one.
"I hit a deer on the way into work and my car is inoperable."
Highly underated excuse especially for those who work in rural areas or work the night shift. This excuse comes with some built in psychological grievance time because you can always say, "I can't get the image of bambi's bloody noggin smashed on my windshield out of my head."
Cut the power lines at your work.
This is for those of you who want to go the complete extra mile. Not advisable, but sure does show commitment.
"I'm having a vasectomy"
No one will question you on this one. What are they going to do, ask to see the scar? The best thing is, you could schedule a vasectomy and recover over the weekend. What a great health care system we have.
Good luck with your excuses. Choose wisely.
