I think every one has had an excuse or two they have given that was a big whopping lie. Well, ok not a lie, but maybe an exaggeration. It’s just me your talking to, it’s ok to fess up. I will tell you when I worked at a bank a few years back, I called out of work. It was awful, I was a victim of attempted spousalcide. (Is that even a word?) Yep, I called out dead. Well, almost dead. Mr. Crunchy tried to kill me.
Before you call the police, let me tell you the story. Mr. Crunchy didn’t really attempt to kill me, so if I had died he would’ve only been guilty of manslaughter. Here’s what happened. In our old house, THE worst plumbing was the worst. Our pipes in our bathroom were always clogging up.
Sick and tired of clogged sinks, my husband bought a professional strength plumbing cleaner. You know, the kind that is sold in a plastic bag on the OUTSIDE of the bottle it’s so toxic. Yep, that’s the one. He used it to unclog our drain, and then covered it like it said to do for a few minutes. After it was all said and done, our sink worked perfectly. It’s scary stuff, but man did it work.
What Mr. Crunchy neglected to tell me, was that he used my bathroom drinking glass to cover the drain! When I went to take my medicine before work the next day, I took a swig and I instantly felt my tongue start to tingle and my throat start to close a little bit. I looked down in the trash can in horror to see that the empty plumbing bottle was in the garbage! Oh my gosh, it was awful! I felt so dizzy and nauseous. I didnt’ know if I needed to call 911 or call Mr. Crunchy first and cuss him out! (I did the latter I assure you)
Ok, so I didn’t actually call out dead, but I did call out sick. It was a lot of fun to explain to my boss the next day why exactly I called out due to “nausea”. Glad she knew us well enough not to call the cops! My excuse did work too. I didn’t get in trouble, thank goodness!
The doctor’s on Children Hospital are always having antics like this. They don’t work Saturdays, so let’s just say their patients might just find themselves in situations like mine, but with no doctor to turn to.
Children’s Hospital: Third Season is coming out on DVD, and it’s sure to filled with crazy stories like this one. Well, maybe not this crazy! Catch a glimpse of it here, and then stay tuned for it to come out on DVD. You can find it in the WB shop for purchase!
What’s the funniest excuse you have ever heard? Did you get away with? I can’t be the only one with crazy story like this one!
