HR Strange But True!
April 04, 2002
We all know that HR is never boring. But sometimes it can get downright strange...

One less excuse

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has withdrawn a light-hearted excuse form that allowed Pittsburgh-area commuters to blame their tardiness on a highway construction project.

The project, at the Fort Pitt Tunnel and Bridge in Pittsburgh, is expected to snarl area traffic for several months. At the beginning of this week, the transportation department's Web site offered a form that people could download and present to their bosses - complete with an entire array of tardiness excuses from which to choose. The form came with a signature from a department spokesman.

But as publicity about the spoof widened, the agency decided to yank the link from its Web site. The department says it was only meant as an April Fool's joke.
