The Orgasm Excuse

I was reading my defunct True Employee Confessions blog and found a confession that came from me, from a job I had back in my early 20s.

*****

I was having coffee with my manager, Scott, in the office when an employee burst in, late.
"Mark, you're late!" said Scott.
"I KNOW!" said Mark.
"What happened?" said Scott.
"Well, it was like this. I was having sex with my girlfriend and I got done and she said 'But I didn't have a good orgasm!' so I had to do it again. So I was late," Mark said.
Scott and I just sat there, stunned.

*******

Absolutely true. I can't make this stuff up.

I think that's a good excuse. If he lost his job, I bet he got to keep his girlfriend. :)

But it makes for an excellent blog post all these years ago!

A good retort would have been "she says that all the time, I should know."

Sadly, I had a boss who probably would have given the guy a raise and a promotion for a story like that. Or worse yet, he would have asked for details.

Hah! at least he was honest. Or, if not, very inventive!!

I would totally promote a go-getter, dedicated worker like that.

Okay, and now I'm wondering what the chick said to her boss.

Well it isn't like you can really argue with him.

Note to self: Date Mark.

ROFLMAO!

I laughed out loud, which caused several people to look up at me.

I love that excuse, I'm going to use it one day.

It sure beats "The dog ate my homework."

Good lord....
Reminds me of the old joke where a teacher says "There's absolutely no reason other than death that you can miss the test tomorrow" A cocky jock student says "What if I'm just completely exhausted from having sex all night?" to which the teacher responded
"Just write with your other hand"
