Dog-sitting emergency

I remember the days that you only called out from work when you were really sick… And, those who made up an excuse, well, they made up a good one. I work at a law office where students from the local university do internships/externships (for course credit or as volunteers). Today one of them called. She won’t be in because she has a “dog-sitting emergency.” I’m not judging the validity of her concerns or situation; but, as excuses go, only one thing is certain – it made me laugh.

(Here’s my pit Bruce, giving himself a time-out.)
