Make A Perfect Excuse And A Big Impression At The Same Time!
This article was originally published by Douglas Castle in THE DAILY BURST OF BRILLIANCE .001 Blog,
It can happen to anyone. You are invited to some event that you'd prefer not to attend, but you do not wish to insult the host, hostess or emissary by either 1) telling the truth; 2) lying about the sudden onset of some debilitating physical condition...something on the order of food poisoning which has caused sporatic projectile vomit or excessive intestinal distress; or 3) just failing to show up and saying that your Bentley or Rolls (or your Gremlin or Pacer) broke down on the highway.
What you should say in order to make a perfect excuse and a big impression in one simple statement is thusly (commit it to memory):
"While I would be honored to attend, I'm afraid that I will not be available, as I've been called to testify before a Congressional Subcommitee."
If the event falls on a weekend, simply add (to obviate any suspicions): "I can't believe that they've called this Special Session..."
Please let me know how this works.
