Thread Name: BS: being late for work
Subject: RE: BS: being late for work
I used to make up all sorts of excuses for being late for school and get away with it, but the one time our chimney caught fire and I had to wait for the fire brigade with my disabled mother, the teacher didn't believe me and I got detention for telling the truth!

I have the joys of flexible working hours so there is no such thing as being late. I can be too early though, if I arrive before 7.00am (which has happened more than once!) I have to sign in and be escorted to the foyer where I have to wait until 6.55am when the cleaning staff finish and we are allowed up to our desks.
