Ever woken up with a killer hangover, perfected your scratchy “I have a sore throat” voice and called your boss, pretending to be sick? You’re not alone.Feigning a bad cold isn’t the lamest excuse in the world. But some employees don’t even bother to base their excuses in reality, coming up with the most ridiculous reasons to avoid work. In a national survey commissioned by CareerBuilder.com, which polled 3,103 workers and 2,203 hiring managers and human resource professionals in different industries, employers shared the 10 most absurd excuses they’ve ever heard an employee use to skip work. Here they are:1. “I just put a casserole in the oven.”2. “I had plastic surgery and need some ‘tweaking’ to get it just right.”3. “I was sitting in the bathroom and my feet and legs fell asleep. When I stood, up I fell and broke my ankle.”4. “I was at the casino all weekend and still had money left to play with on Monday morning.”5. “I woke up in a good mood and didn’t want to ruin it.”6. “I had a ‘lucky night’ and didn’t know where I was.”7. “I got stuck in the blood pressure machine at the grocery store and couldn’t get out.”8. “I had a gall stone I want to heal holistically.”9. “My uniform caught on fire by putting it in the microwave to dry.”10. ‘I accidentally got on a plane.”While these excuses are hilarious, they can have consequences: the survey found that, thanks to social media, one in four employers have busted an employee pretending to be sick, and one in five have fired an employee for calling in sick with a phony excuse.Here’s a tip: If you’re friends with your boss on Facebook, it’s probably not a good idea to post of photo of yourself enjoying a Bloody Mary-fueled brunch with your BFF when you faked a touch of bubonic plague that day. Just sayin’.
