I need an excuse…

…to get out of going to a company Xmas party — and I need it today. I have to deliver the excuse by 4:00pm EST (or 5:30pm NST).

Come on people! I need your help here.

I will be in your debt.

  1. Is there a Taco Bell nearby? If so, go out to Taco Bell, grab bag from trash can, go to favorite take-out, put good food in bag, go back to work, eat food. Blame the Bell. Done.

  2. Migraines! It usually works for me! Say that someone was wearing too much perfume and the smell has made you nauseus, or something like that. Or it’s so dry, your sinuses siezed up.

  3. Go – you might just have a good time. Besides I have to go to mine tomorrow night. So do what I am doing and suck it up and go.

  4. Musherman, I don’t think anyone takes the “Xmas” is “Xmas party” that literally.

    I went with the airborne STD excuse. I said, “I have a sexually transmitted disease that’s mutated and become airborne. I should probably leave. See you later!”
