    I've heard my share of excuses for not coming to work in the last 20 years,
    but this morning was a new one.

    I've got an ingrown hair on my peck'r.
    He could be able to work, but it's very uncomfortable to walk.
    He said it was about 3 inches long,
    so I said "That must really hurt on a 4" peck'r"

    He did at least call in an hour before start time.

    NO LIE.

    Maybe guys should do a monthly inspection on their privates
    Same as girls should do for 'lumps'

    I worked with a guy who had a theory that the more outrageous the excuse the better. "Its so crazy it must be true" was the idea. Ingrown hair on his johnson? That is a good one. Make him prove it!!

    My buddy gets them on his "taint" often-After I see the pain he's in, I feel too bad to make fun. I also feel bad for the doctor that has to lance him!
    Yuk!
    Now back to the NFL draft...
