This Woman’s Excuse for Being Late to Work has Gone Viral

Everyone has days that life gets in the way and they run late for work. 

If you’re lucky, you might have a kind, understanding boss. But, if we’re honest, those are rare and most people you report to would have major issues with you turning up late for work. 

A woman in Oklahoma at least tried to come up with a good excuse as to why she didn’t pitch up on time: a flat tire. The unnamed lady sent her boss a picture of her wheel which very clearly had a nail sticking into it. 

The only problem? The photo was clearly photoshopped!

Both the nail and the tire appear heavily edited which did nothing to convince her boss. Her colleague, however, saw the humor and decided to post the image to social media. 

“My co-worker called in (yet again) and said she had a nail on her tire that caused her to have a flat. I need everyone to stop what they’re doing and zoom into the nail in the picture she sent to my boss,” wrote Sydney Whitson on Twitter.

Users could definitely identify with the situation as the post went viral, racking up almost 250,000 likes and 46,000 retweets with many adding their own humorous responses!
