Why they don't start the Super Bowl earlier? I will never understand. 

The Big Game can go pretty late with all the commercials that they have to play and all the timeouts and penalties. So, I am sure that a lot of people already plan on calling in late to work!

Well, don't just call in without an excuse — your boss will never fall for it. Here are some of the worst excuses that bosses have heard from their employees:

1. "I knocked myself out in the shower."

2. "Someone robbed the gas station I was at, and I didn't have enough gas to get to another station."

3. "I had to wait for the judge to set my bail."

4. "There was a stranger sleeping in my car."

5. "I dreamed that I got fired."

I'm pretty sure that if you use any of those excuses come Monday morning, No. 5 will become a reality!
