17 Excuses To Give Your Boss When You Sleep In

Sometimes you need to treat yourself to a cheeky sleep in. Maybe it’s because you’re exhausted from putting in the hard yards necessary for maintaining a ‘normal' adult life. Or you took one look at the clock and sent yourself back into a voluntary coma. Either way, it’s well deserved. The trick to getting away with it at work, however, is giving your boss the perfect excuse.

In case you find yourself falling victim to a sneaky sleep in any time soon, the following is a list of foolproof (...and occasionally foolish) excuses that your boss will believe [almost] every time.

  1. I slipped in the shower and hit my head on a Herbal Essence bottle.

  2. I ate chicken ceviche for dinner last night.

  3. I accidentally brushed my teeth with a curling wand.

  4. Both of my cats have clinical depression and I have to stop them necking themselves on the scratching post.

  5. I have a beef stroganoff in the slow cooker that I need to keep an eye on.

  6. I touched down from a business trip to Hobart last night and am still sleeping off the jetlag.

  7. I got mauled by a possum when I was putting the bins out this morning.

  8. I accidentally used Fancy Feast in my tuna bake last night and haven’t left the bathroom for fourteen hours.

  9. I didn’t realise French toast had gluten in it.

  10. I went to bed with wet hair and woke up with the flu.

  11. My bus driver got a DUI.

  12. I am at work, what do you mean you can’t find me?

  13. I dislocated my wrist trying to unscrew the Vegemite lid.

  14. My dog ate my car keys.

  15. The morning shower triggered my thunder asthma.

  16. I thought the laxatives box said take three pills FOURTEEN times a day.

  17. Honestly, I just couldn’t get out of bed. It’s just too damn comfortable.
