Friday Morning Staffing Humor – Part II: “Sorry, but I can’t work today…”

by Brenda Long

A continuation of my staffing humor post from last Friday where I shared a list of 10 excuses our  staffing software clients have gotten from their employees for not coming to work.  Here’s the next 10…enjoy!

  1. I won’t be in today because I have come down with Spring Fever.    
  2. Can’t make it in. I have a chance of filling in for someone on jury duty.
  3. I’m too high to go to work today.
  4. I had my hair braided last night and it does not look good so I can’t go in! –from a guy!!!
  5. My mom died.  Frank you told me that last month.  She really did die this time.
  6. I had a guy tell me he was not going to be able to be to work because he had 10 tickets to a Brewers baseball game that he had to scalp. He said “I can make more money today scalping these tickets than I can cooking.”
  7. I’m too tired.
  8. Water heater broke; can’t take a shower.
  9. Employee called in VERY sick and could barely talk.  Later saw him on T.V at a ball game. Darn big screen.
  10. My man won’t let me go to work

Feel free to comment with your own great staffing stories and check back next Friday morning for another list of great excuses.
