Career Builder just released its annual list of the most ridiculous sick day excuses people have come up with in the past year.  Here’s the top ten . . .

 

1.  A guy claimed the ozone made his tires go flat.

 

2.  A guy said he had to be a pallbearer at the funeral of his wife’s cousin’s PET.

 

3.  A woman said she couldn’t get out of her house, because the police were raiding it.

 

4.  A woman wouldn’t cancel her hair appointment, because her roots were showing.

 

5.  Someone said they accidentally ate cat food instead of tuna and got sick.

 

6.  A woman called in and said SHE wasn’t sick, but her llama was.

 

7.  A woman claimed she used Nair on her armpits . . . ended up with chemical burns . . . and couldn’t put her arms down.

 

8.  Someone said they couldn’t come in because they ate too much birthday cake.

 

9.  A guy said he couldn’t make it in because he was bowling the game of his life.

 

10.  An employee claimed they had to stay home, because they got bitten by a duck.
