What's the worst lie you've told ...

to get out of work (or school or other huge commitment)?

I'm too embarassed to admit the doozies I've told in the past!!

ETA: I had a final option of "Other -- pls. explain if not too embarassed" but it wouldn't let me have another one. Hmph.

2nd ETA: WORST lie, not worse. Duh.

I was at my boyfreinds house with his entire extended family, meeting most of them for the first time and I was a good hour late to work, so I told them my car broke and I had to tow it to the shop then wait for them to give me a ride to work...(BMW does that too) it didnt work though and I was fired But it was worth it, boyfreind looked out for me and told my boss what happened and I got my job back. (Probably the only time dating a guy at work benefited me)

My job has combined vacation and sick time (Paid Time Off) so I don't have any reason to lie. In school, I was always the one pretending to be healthy when sick so I wouldn't miss school!

This is my first year taking any vacation - two days for my sister's wedding and one day to go on a field trip with my daughter.

This is SO stupid....the last job I had was 20 years ago ,one day I had a fight with my husband and I was really upset.
Rather than tell my boss that story,I said I fell down the stairs
What a dork :P

I once said I had stomach flu to get a day off from work. It was the only time I ever did that. I felt very guilty.

I know. I'm boring.
