I won't be in today. My fish is sick and I need to take it to the vet.

My neighbor's daughter got a round hair brush stuck in her hair and I need to help her get it out.

I won't be in today because I have come down with Spring Fever.

I fell off a ladder fixing the roof on my house and I landed on my elbow.

I have a head ache.... # 22...actual times someone at work has called in with this excuse!

I don't think I'll be in work for awhile. Yesterday I was riding my son's BMX bike and I fell and broke my ankle it two places and I'm in the hospital.

I'm not coming in because I need a mental day.

I'm not coming in because I feel too good.
