What's Your Excuse For Being Late...Again?

Posted: Updated:

If your motto is better late than never,  think about this.  

A Career Builder poll found 35-percent of employers have fired someone for being tardy. That same survey found 23-percent of employees admit to being late at least once a month.

The most common excuse for being late is bad weather, but an imaginative employee told the boss that a zebra was running down the highway and held up traffic. Or, the employee's cat got stuck in the toilet.

Want more excuses, try this one. One person said she was watching  T-V and really wanted to see the end of the show, putting entertainment ahead of work!
