An Observer's Thoughts on the World
November 1, 2017
November begins the holiday event and party cycle and lots of people will be calling off work. If you are an employer, I know your pain. You still might get a kick out of these excuses though...
If you are an employee, feel free to use a few of these excuses...I never questioned any of them.
I’m Not Going to Be In Today
The top reasons my waitresses used to call off work:

I have my period and I’m bleeding all over the place.
I have my period and I can’t walk because of the cramps.
I have to appear in court today to renew my order of protection.

My boyfriend and I are fighting.
