Just in case your boss catches you asleep at your desk, be ready to blurt out one of these excuses:

*They told me at the blood bank that this might happen.

*This is just a 15-minute power nap like they raved about in that time management course you sent me to.

*I was working smarter - not harder.

*Whew! I must have left the top off the whiteout.

*I wasn’t sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm!

*This is one of the seven habits of highly effective people!

*I was testing the keyboard for drool resistance.

*I’m in the management training program.

*I’m actually doing a Stress Level Elimination Exercise Plan (SLEEP).

I learned at the last mandatory seminar you made me attend.

*This is in exchange for the six hours last night when I dreamed about work!

*Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem.

*The coffee machine is broken ....

*Someone must have put decaf in the wrong pot.

*Boy, that cold medicine I took last night just won’t wear off.

*Ah, the unique and unpredictable circadian rhythms of the workaholic!

*I wasn’t sleeping. I was trying to pick up my contact lens without my hands.

*The mail courier flipped out and pulled a gun so I was playing dead to avoid getting shot.

*Gosh, I thought you (the boss) were gone for the day.
