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?

Why I was late
This story is not about me,it concerns a young apprentice who I used to work with maybe 10-12 years ago.

Now,said person was not the brightest,constantly irritating our foreman with his sheer stupidity and incompetence.

One stormy morning,lashing rain,thunder and lightning,the young lad appears at about 10:30,after the storm has died down.

"Where the fuck have you been" demanded our exasperated foreman,

"My dad looked out of the window and said,only a fucking idiot would go out in that weather" came the reply

Cue disbelieving looks from eveyone in the work as the hapless youngster was hauled into the office for a final warning.

He didn't last much longer.
