I have never in my entire life heard such blatant excuses for being late.
I hit ‘dismiss’ and not ‘snooze’ on my alarm ... used several times
My domestic was late, I needed to discipline her ... used almost daily
I’ve been away this weekend and I’m tired.
I used to find it very frustrating in a supermarket in the UK ... ‘do you sell....? was usually greeted with ... ‘I don’t know’... followed by a long pause before I said either ... ‘well can you ask someone that does know’ or my absolute favourite ‘it’s not my fault you work here’. In South Africa if I ask for something, they don’t tell you where it is or even take you there...they bloody well go and fetch it for you.
