There's always going to be that one guy who always comes in to work late, and has an excuse that works. All the time. It's as if he wrote a book on excuses and is using them line by line. One Redditor decided to document all the late excuses his co-worker used, up until the day he was fired.


Redditor Diondrems documented in a spreadsheet all the ridiculous and overplayed excuses his co-worker used.

“He started in 2014 and was late almost every day for nearly 2 years before they decided to get rid of him. The times he was on time was because he was partying the night before and he’d usually sleep the first few hours of his shift.”


Worst still was that Diondrems had actually helped the guy get the job in the first place:

“Im actually the reason he got the job. He worked with a friend at another job and it somehow came up that we had an opening. To make a long story short I gave my boss his resume vouching for him even though I had never met him. My position in our company is pretty chill so I’m not sure if they didn’t want to train someone new or what but yeah he lasted longer than a lot of people would at other companies.”
