Many employees have the ability to stay home from work when they're sick, but every now and then, people will call in sick even if they're not really feeling under the weather. CareerBuilder is out with its annual survey of the most outrageous excuses workers have given when calling in sick.

One person said his favorite football team lost and he needed time to recover. Another said that a swarm of bees surrounded his car and he couldn't make it in.

How about not being able to decide what to wear? Someone's used that before.

And one employee said that someone glued her doors and windows shut so she couldn't leave the house to come to work

While another worker said he was quitting smoking and too grouchy to come to work.
