CareerBuilder.com just released the results of a survey on the craziest excuses for being late for work. Boy are there some good ones!

Here are the top 8:

8.)  One woman dropped her purse in a newspaper dispenser box, and couldn’t get it out without putting in change, but all her change was in the purse.

7.)  A guy left his apartment with his roommate’s girlfriend’s shoes on, and had to go back to change.

6.)  A guy tried to cut his own hair before work, but his clippers broke halfway, so he needed to wait for a barber shop to open to get his haircut fixed.

5.)  A woman was late because the forecast called for rain, and she needed to put a raincoat on a CEMENT DUCK statue in her front yard.

4.)  One woman drove to her old job by mistake.

3.)  One guy’s car wouldn’t start, because his court-ordered breathalyzer showed he was drunk.

2.)  A guy was late because his car was ATTACKED BY A BEAR on the way to work and he had photographic evidence to prove it.

1.)  And finally, one person was late because they stopped to DELIVER A STRANGER’S BABY on the side of the highway.

I bet there are some bosses and supervisors out there that can top even these!

Now, as far as regular excuses, number one was traffic followed by oversleeping and taking the kids to school or daycare.
