    Here’s one to beat.

    I was allowed to head home from work one day because “I don’t wanna”. No really – I just wasn’t feeling it. Made a joke about it, but my boss was all “Well, we got all the needed work done today, so if you want, you can take some PTO and head some.”

    My mother once signed me out of class so we could see Star Wars episode 3. She said it was a “culturally significant experience”

    This was a fun episode. It’s very interesting and hilarious to learn what types of excuses that Stephen and Matthew can come up with. When it came to Stephen’s #1 I thought he was gonna go all Batman origin and say the crow cracked the glass window, landed on the bust of his father, and then swore to his father to take up the persona of Crow-man!

    I liked how Stephen’s Manager Voice sounded like a character from Sesame Street, pretty funny all around!
