What was your excuse the last time you showed up for work late?
CareerBuilder once again asked employers to share the most outrageous excuses from tardy employees.
Here are three:
- I dropped my purse into a coin-operated newspaper box and couldn't retrieve it without change, which was in my purse
- -My car wouldn't start because the breathalyzer showed I was intoxicated
- My angry wife froze my truck keys in a glass of water in the freezer.
The annual survey also found 26-percent of workers admit to being tardy at least once a month and 16-percent are late once a week or more.
