10 Excuses Being Late to Work

What's the best excuse you gave your boss for being late to work? Below are ten examples a new career builder's survey came up with.

thought she had won the lottery (she didn't).
got distracted watching the Today show
angry roommate cut the cord to his phone charger, so it didn't charge and his alarm didn't go off
believed his commute time should count toward his work hours
claimed a fox stole her car keys
leg was trapped between the subway car and the platform (turned out to be true)
said he wasn't late, because he had no intention of getting to work before 9:00 a.m. (his start time was 8:00 a.m.)
was late because of a job interview with another company
had to take a personal call from the state governor (turned out to be true)
