A recent survey found that 30% of the employees resort to giving fake excuses to be absent from work.
Some of the excuses were so creative that they merit a mention.
One such imaginative reason - somebody actually called their boss to say that his toe got stuck in the faucet.
Some employees did not show up at work after feeling low. One employee said that she got so upset after watching 'the hunger games' that she couldn't bear to get to work.
Some of the employees gave other excuses like getting hit by a bird or a pet suffering a nervous breakdown.
