(WHAS11) -- Ever had one of those days when you just don't feel like going to work? Career Builder has compiled a list of the most creative excuses workers gave when calling in.

They include: my dog is having a nervous breakdown, my toe is stuck in a faucet, I'm having my dead grandmother dug up for a police investigation and I got upset watching the Hunger Games.

Research shows 30 percent of workers have called in sick over the past year when they weren't.

But if you plan on playing hooky-- be careful! About three in ten employers will check up on you by either calling you-- or requiring a doctor's note.
