“I Was Late To Work Because _________” — Excuses That Only Work In Nacogdoches

We’ve all done it at some point. We’ve had to give our excuse as to why we were late to work, or why we missed work altogether. If you’ve never had to give an excuse, apparently you haven’t been employed there long enough.

There’s always the simple ones. Things like, “I had jury duty.” Or, “I was at the doctor.” These are all well and good, but if you’re in Nac, you should give the following excuses a try next time.

Tx Dot construction


There’s still construction on Starr Avenue



This is a great one to use if your boss is a Nacogdoches native. They know the struggle this causes. This will work, even if your job is nowhere near Starr. They’ll sympathize. Trust me.




A New Donut Shop Is Opening



With 10 donut shops in town, this is a sure way to get a good excuse. Nac is always opening a new one. Just tell them you had to be there for the grand opening. On another note, be sure you bring donuts with you the next time you go to work.




SFA Is Back In Session



This one is probably one of the best on this list. In a town that revolves around the university, it’s a perfectly logical excuse. See also: “Traffic on North Street”




I Accidentally Hit A Cyclist On Pearl Street…With My Car…



This one is a tad bit more difficult to pull off in the excuse department…however, hey, it could happen.


DJ trolls crowd


SFA Students Were Protesting and I Couldn’t Get Past



This is another one that could be a real possibility in Nacogdoches. This is an excuse that you could probably use a lot over the next 4-8 years…
