People who are that bad at lying should just tell the truth.
Tell Us Now: What's The Worst Excuse You've Heard?

They are late because they have rushed and crossed all the barriers from the house to the office. Employees present a plethora of excuses to their superiors, but there are also amusing and unique excuses.

Employees are more inventive and make extreme explanations when they are late to work.

We asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What's the worst excuse someone has given you to get out of doing something?” We were very impressed by the flakiness of your friends but not by their lying ability. 

At some point in our lives, we've all tried to come up with a plausible reason rather than acknowledging failure. Some people excel at it, while others crumble under pressure and say something that is clearly a falsehood. We looked into a Cracked thread and asked Reader's Digest readers to come up with some of the most ridiculous (and hilarious) justifications ever made. Also, take a look at these crazy justifications people have used to avoid getting into trouble.

Here are 13 of the strangest responses.
