|If you’ve ever bunked a day off work you’re likely to enjoy the latest promotional competition from I-gaming site BetWWTS. In honour of the grand tradition BetWWTS is offering anyone who can come up with an original excuse for playing hooky the chance to win two tickets to their home team’s home opener.|
In the competition simply come up with the excuse you will give to your boss on the basis that you’ve won the free tickets. The excuse can be as outlandish as you like or based on an excuse you’ve used in real life. A personal favourite of mine is to explain to my boss that I’m in bed with a lovely girl and I plan to stay there for the next few days. True story. Though of course she soon left once I fell asleep and bit through the ropes.
Some examples the kind people at BetWWTS provide to give you an idea of what they’re looking for:
I can't come into work today because of eye trouble.... I can't see working today.
If it is all the same to you, I won't be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.
When I got up this morning, I took two Ex-Lax in addition to my Prozac. I can't get off the john, but I feel good about it.
I can't come in to work today because I'll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work. OK?
I am stuck in the blood pressure machine down at Wal-Mart.
Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.
The dog ate my car keys. We're going to hitchhike to the vet.
The contest ends on the 27th of March so if you think you can do better get along to the BetWWTS website. The winning excuse will be posted to our website on the 28th!
