Do you have a go-to excuse to get out of something you don't want to do . . . or are you someone who tries to mix it up? Personally I try to always tell the truth. But, a new survey asked people what they do when they want to get out of something, and 63% said they try to "find" other, "more important" things to do instead. They also asked people for the excuse they go with most often, and the most common response was: "I'm too tired." Here's the rest of the Top 10:
2. "It's too cold." (we'd never be able to do anything here if we used that one)
3. "I forgot."
4. "I'll start tomorrow."
5. "I didn't sleep well last night."
6. "I'm trying to save money."
7. "I just can't be bothered." (this seems mean)
8. "I've got a lot of work to do."
9. "I've got a headache."
10. "I've made other plans."
Less popular excuses were: "I can't get up, the cat is on my lap." And "I'm busy catching up on household chores." So do you have a go-to excuse that you use. Like I said, I try to use the truth, but for me, that usually is "I'm too tired" mainly because of my weird wonky hours. What about you?
