Over the years, I have answered the phones for many, many call in's. Most are pretty standard, some sound legit, other's are painfully obvious that they are full of crap. Then there were a couple that were complete WTF moments. Have you gotten any off-the-wall, crazy reasons why people were calling in? Please share them if you do! Here's a couple of my examples: 1. Employee called in and said he couldn't come in that night because he was stuck on Mars. (Yes, he was talking about the planet). I asked him how he got stuck there, and he said he couldn't find a taxi. 2. Was raining one day, so employee called in due to "Bicycle doesn't have very good windshield wipers." He was not being sarcastic. Completely serious. He also only ever drove a car to work. Mind you, this was the same employee who was sent home one night for being sick, and then showed back up to his area an hour later and told his sup that he couldn't find the exit (about 30 yards from his work area).
