That’s Outrageous

I recently saw a show on Dr. Phil where I noted that the guest made constant excuses for her behavior. It made me realize how I sound when I make excuses for EVERYTHING whether I see them as excuses or not. To show how ridiculous excuses can be, I am sharing the following from Reader’s Digest May 2016:

♦ A former art lecturer at MIT was sentenced to a year in jail for robbing a bank. Although he admitted to committing the crime, he insisted he should not serve time.

HIS EXCUSE:  It was done as a part of a performance art piece.


♦ After a Breathalyzer test showed her blood alcohol level was more than four times the legal limit, a New York State woman was arrested. But, she said, there was an explanation.

HER EXCUSE:  She suffered from auto-brewery syndrome, which meant her body created alcohol.

♦Another disputed DUI occurred in Wisconsin. The 75-year-old driver told officers he hadn’t touched a drop.

HIS EXCUSE:  His blood alcohol level was high because of his dinner – beer battered fish.

♦ On February 7, at 4:30 p.m., a driver was pulled over for topping 100 mph. The man, however, asked the police officer to be quick, as he was in a hurry.

HIS EXCUSE:  He had tickets for the Super Bowl in Santa Clara, California, and kickoff was at 6:30. Police were skeptical, since the stop occurred in Pennsylvania.


♦ When a Florida bicyclist was detained, police found crack cocaine in his pants pocket. “Wait, what?” said the man.

HIS EXCUSE:  He had no idea how the crack had gotten into the pants because they weren’t his pants. The cash the cops found? Yeah, that was his, but not the drugs.

    1. I used to say, “The good thing about accidentally wearing you underwear wrong side outward is that you can wear them on the other side the next day.”☺️ Bet she didn’t get away with her excuse, huh?😆
