    One guy I worked with who turns out was an alchoholic would miss at least 1 day a week. He called in one day and said his house flooded. He lived in a trailer house and it was about 2-3 feet above the ground. There is no way his house could have flooded! OMG we used to make so much fun of him and all his excuses!

    The most unique one I have used is...

    Garage door springs broke and I couldn't get the car out of the garage.. I had to wait several hours for the repair man to come and fix it.

    Most people can not lift a double size garage door on their own without the springs.

    each and everyone of us had a time that he needed to leave work for something, so just tell them i have something important to do, its very important, something personal, i dont think they will ask what when u say its something important. try that, i have done that and it worked.

    something in your house broke -- like your washing machine and you have to be home to let the repairman in

    something to do with your kids

    Your cat got sick and you have to take him to the veterinary.

    It will make you look sensitive and believable.

    If you don't have one , later you can say that it is died and you can get even extra day off;-)
