We've all been late for work, it happens. But usually our excuse is "Sorry, I was stuck in traffic", not "I got Vaseline in my eyes".
I'm not going to lie, I've been late for work for a bunch of crazy reasons. From being up all night at the Emergency Room with a kidney stone to my dog have a strange incident with his ummm "doggy parts", I have definitely had my fair share of weird excuses for being late to work.
But not even my story about needing stitches, because I ran into a dog crate, can compare to this list of bizarre excuses from CareerBuilder.
"The pizza I ordered was late being delivered, and I had to be home to accept/pay for it."
"I was cornered by a moose."

"I thought Flag Day was a legal holiday."
"My dad offered to make me a grilled cheese sandwich, and I couldn't say no."
"My mother-in-law wouldn't stop talking."
