Tuesday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!


WELCOME to Tuesday October 16, 2018.

Today we take a look at the top 15 excuses for calling in sick!
In a recent 2019 survey for employees who call in sick with bogus excuses. Thirty-two percent of workers said they called in sick when they felt well at least once during the last year, down from 43 percent in the 2018 survey. This could be because some employers are evolving to a PTO (paid time off) system, which is a more flexible way for workers to take time off from work. But, workers should be mindful of company policies and their responsibilities as an employee.

The most popular motivator for missing work: good, old-fashioned R&R. Almost half of workers said they needed to relax, while 24 percent wanted to catch up on sleep. Other top reasons included running personal errands (20 percent), doctor’s appointments (17 percent), plans with family and friends (16 percent) and housework (16 percent).  Here are the top 15 reasons;

1. Employee was poisoned by his mother-in-law.😱

2. A buffalo escaped from the game reserve and kept charging the employee every time she tried to go to her car from her house. 😐
3. Employee was feeling all the symptoms of his expecting wife. 
4. Employee called from his cell phone, saying that he was accidentally locked in a restroom stall and that no one was around to let him out.
5. Employee broke his leg snowboarding off his roof while drunk.
6. Employee’s wife said he couldn’t come into work because he had a lot of chores to do around the house. 🙏
7. One of the walls in the employee’s home fell off the night before.😐
8. Employee’s mother was in jail.
9. A skunk got into the employee’s house and sprayed all of his uniforms. 
10. Employee had a bad case of hiccups. 
11. Employee blew his nose so hard, his back went out.
12. Employee’s horses got loose and were running down the highway. 
13. Employee was hit by a bus while walking.
14. Employee’s dog swallowed her bus pass.
15. Employee was sad.
