This is a question Why I was late

"On the way to the station, I got hit by a bat, it almost took my head clean off. Then the machine would not accept my ticket and the guy at the gate didn't think I looked like the photo on my travel card. So I had to go home and get my passport.

Then the train was 45 minutes late to the station because of the dangerous badger threat at Carpenters Park.

When I was on the train it took and hour and a half to get past the biscuit factory because the driver was really fat.

Then there was a delay stopping at the station because the train in front had heard we were coming and decided to play a practical joke with a rubber shoe on the track.

That is why I couldn't get here on time today."

What's your best excuse?

at work...
not me, but a bloke from my old job used to come out with some crazy excuses. two that stick in my mind are;

1) he turned up 3 hours late for work one day, claiming that a birds nest had fallen out of a tree in his garden and he had to stand there and protect the chicks from predators.

2) he was 2 hours late one morning, and tried saying that he was due to be in on time, but the traffic was so bad on the road outside work, that he had been standing at the other side, waiting to cross for 2 hours, i kid you not.

he got sacked eventually.
