“I got sunburned at a nudist beach and can’t wear any clothes”. A list of the most creative excuses to look out for!

As a manager, having a team member take the day off can be a bit of a hassle, especially as when the pressure mounts, people get stressed and often sick. As a manager you’ll also hear your fair share of excuses, including those excuses that need about ten sentences to make the reason why they can’t be at work make sense.

Just for fun, I thought I’d share this old but hilarious blog(1) by Jane Lowder (of Max Coaching) from Career EQ about the most creative excuses according to a absenteeism survey. And if you’ve ever heard “I’m just not into it today” or “I got injured chasing a seagull” or something equally hilarious, share it in the comments box.
