The job website has compiled a list of the most-unusual reasons people call in sick to work.

The list came after a survey of thousands of human resource managers.

Among the stories include one of a worker who claimed to have caught a cold from a puppy and another story from a man who couldn't come in because he ate too much at a party.

One human resource manager said an employee called in because he'd been rushed to the hospital for accidentally drinking anti-freeze. said the weirdest cause they came across was the case of a high-end chef whose several and numerous "food allergies" kept him out of the kitchen.
