Good Reason For Being Late For Work info


A guy in St. Louis was driving to work on Hwy 144 when he heard a 'pop'. He
thought it sounded like a flat tire, though his ride wasn't affected. After
pulling over, checking the tires and finding them intact he opened the hood
to look at the motor. Before the hood was even all the way open he jumped
back in shock and knoc! ked his head on the p! artially opened hood, unable
to believe what his eyes were seeing! Nobody was going to believe this! sure wouldn't have either! Fortunately, a coworker with a camera
recognized him along side the road and stopped to see if he could help.
Check out the photos to witness for yourself the source of his amazement.
Now, this has to be right up there at the top of the list of unusual but
verified "Reasons I was late for work"!!!!

OTOH, mine's pretty good, too -- I got an email to my BlackBerry this morning saying there was a "1000 minute delay" on the subway line that I ride.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" -- Isaiah 6:8

Poor snake But funny, but sad, but still funny.

What it is to be Australian - - "Being Australian is about driving in a Japanese car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Malaysian furniture and watch American shows on a Chinese TV. And the most Australian thing of all - Suspicion of anything foreign”

Hehe i have seen those pictures circulating around the internet for awhile now.

My most favorite excuse is this: I woke up late.

I am like Radio Shack. You have questions? I have answers!
