No More Excuses…

May 20, 2013

If we’re honest, we can all probably think of a time where we’ve made an excuse for missing a deadline that wasn’t exactly true. These days, however, Buddy Backup has made the time old excuse “my computer crashed” a thing of the past. Its simplistic and reliable approach to data backup means you need never lose a document again.

But just in case you find yourself in need of some extra time on that big project, here are 10 of the more bizarre excuses that have been given to teachers and employers in the past…

“My housemates were doing a weeklong World of Warcraft tournament and used up all the bandwidth, so I couldn’t email the assignment.”

“A refrigerator fell on me.”

“I was in line at a coffee shop when a truck carrying flour backed up and dumped the flour into my convertible.”

“I caught a cold from my puppy.”

“My stepfather was showing off his new gun and shot my computer by accident.”

“My child stuck a mint up his nose and we had to go to A&E to get it removed.”

“I hurt my back chasing a beaver.”

“My brother-in-law was kidnapped by a drug cartel while in Mexico.”

“I drank anti-freeze by mistake and had to go to the hospital.”

“I have a solar powered calculator and it was cloudy.”
