The Great Canadian Sick Day is clearly alive and well, as evidenced by these 20 hilarious and real-life excuses to miss work.

    These are funny. Personally, I experienced 3 of these situations and was late for work (not a sick call). A bluejay attacked my head on the way to my car and actually put a hole in my scalp; our new to us dog got into the closet overnight during the winter months and chewed every pair of boots we owned; a new pair of pants I purchased completely split in the back while driving to work - obviously defective merchandise.

    My hair was covered in conditioner when I ran out of hot water!

    Hummm, ever hear of rinsing in cold water or boiling some water in a pot or kettle?

    I slept in because my mother who usually calls me every morning to make sure I wake up to wake my kids up to get to school didn't call as the kids were out of town. (37 y.old)

    I was held up at the border because I set off the radiation scanner because I had a CT scan a month before

    My legs are swollen because I sat on the slot machines too long and then got on an airplane to come home and now can't walk

    These are just the a few, some are even better, including multiple deaths of the same grandparent
