Whether coming in late or missing the day entirely, some employees get pretty creative in their explanation for their absence. Whether it's the crazy truth or an elaborate lie, workers and bosses alike share some of the most insane reasons they've ever heard for why someone was late or couldn't come into work.

The Flintstones.
1. The Flintstones.

"Back in the early '80s, my boss hired a young man who came highly recommended by an employee who had just retired. It turns out that while the former employee was very good at his job, he was worthless at evaluation of character. Work started at 8 A.M., but this new employee (30-ish, married) did not show up until (approx) 8:45 A.M. from day-one. On the fourth/fifth day, the boss was waiting at the time clock, and asked the employee if he understood the required hours. With a straight face, the employee said he understood, but, 'They moved the Flintstones to 8 o'clock, and so I can't leave the house until 8:30.' Never saw him again. I could understand the Jetsons, but the Flintstones?!?" (Source).
