Late For Work. Here Are Some Reasons Why People Are Late

 

A recent survey by Careerbuilder reveals that 25% of workers are late to work at least once a month. That’s down from 29% in 2017. Other findings:

– 12% of workers are late to work on a weekly basis

– 40% of managers have fired someone for being late

Here are the top reasons for being late to work:

Traffic (51%)

Oversleeping (31%)

Bad weather (28%)

Too tired to get out of bed (23%)

Forgot something (13%)

 

And here are the most outrageous excuses for being late:

It’s too cold to work.

I had morning sickness (it was a man).

My dog ate my work schedule.

I was here, but I fell asleep in the parking lot.

Although it has been five years, I forgot I did not work at my former employer’s location and drove there on accident.
