Here are five thoroughly modern excuses for being late to your job.
1. I had to wait for my phone to charge.
2. I lost my remote and had no way to close the garage door.
3. My GPS promised me a shorter route and then took me by way of Albuquerque.
4. I received an urgent text message telling me to check my e-mail. When I read my mail, there was a message saying my nephew was in jail in Mexico and needed $500 to get out so I had to stop on the way to work and wire the money.
5. My dog unplugged my car.
