    I have had to call in because of flats, driveshafts falling out and other such mundane things. But Yesterday tops them all for originality.
    I left for work and the cops had the street blocked off and were turning everyone back.
    I get up to them and I find out that a bomb threat has been called in on the Longveiw bridge.
    And as the road I live on goes under it they were not letting anyone by.
    I was actualy looking foward to going to work as the phone had not been connected and cable is not due till tommorow.
    So I..... started mowing the lawn /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Did the boss have a tough time believing that one? What will you come up with to top that one?

    At least I call in when I am gonna be late, but it seems that lately I am calling in every couple of weeks.
    As far as believing me, I just told him to watch the news.
    I hink he might have doubted me on losing my driveshaft because I drove it into work, but when I welded the caps to the yoke at lunch, that pretty much erased all doubt.
