I know.. I'm such an ass. I don't do it to be a jerk though, I just don't realize I'm being a jerk until after the fact. So dude.. it's their fault for not letting me know I'm being a jerk! *g*
Well I had to choose the tinfoil hat option, y'know.
i figured out most of it, but the pwp lost me. please explain. (:
death via pr0n isn't that bad a way to go... sign me up.

"my dog ate it" has actually been the truth lately. she ate my work keycard, various toys from japan (grr.), my Dust Puppy doll, and my electric bill.
when she ate the electric bill i rubbed her belly and said "Good dog! goooooood doggie! good zimmie!"

Indy actually tried to eat my homework when he was a puppy, there were puppy teeth marks in it.
It was for music theory and he pulled it out from under my pencil and ran around the living room, me chasing him. I kept yelling, "THE PROFESSOR WON'T BELIEVE ME IF I SAY THE DOG ATE MY HOMEWORK!"
I handed it in with the teeth marks on it. :D

Well, not really traffic per se, but there are always problems with the subway in the morning, so that is usually a generally accepted excuse that I one can get away with in this fair city. "I'm sorry I'm late. The trains were messed up." Granted, I left home 30 minutes later than I normally should have, but you don't have to know that. :)

Some time ago I saw a bumper sticker that said: "If you don't like my driving stay off the footpath." Recently some driver actually mounted the footpath to get around the back of me while I was reversing into a dock. When her beloved BMW got wedged between a gatepost and the back of my truck she tried to blame the ugly modifications to its shape on my negligence. Much to my surprise I had the presence of mind to quote that bumper sticker in response. I laughed, but she failed to see the humour in the situation. It is lovely when you know you need no excuse.

I had mono for about a month in april/may this year and it was the best excuse for *anything*. Even after I felt mostly better, i still slept for about 12-18 hours a day and I got away with so much other general incompetence as a result. Just blame the mono.
well I'm crazy as a shit house rat, what can you expect? you're lucky I didn't crap on the floor.

Yep, that's me. If you bothered to understand, then you wouldn't ask me to do that TOO when x y z and q are going on, blah blah blah ...
I whine and deflect. Yep, those are my main faults.

"I was saving a group of girl scouts from a burning cookie factory."
No clue at all any more where I picked that up from either...

I voted "you didn't remind me" but more accurately, in a similar vein, my usual excuse was "I didn't get the memo." :)
