Is there anything better than canceling plans? Being canceled on, probably. There's nothing better than when you get that text from your friend that says, "Heyyyyy, can we actually resched?" HALLELUJAH, BRING ON THE NETFLIX AND SWEATPANTS.
While going out is great and everything, sometimes you're not in the mood. We've all been in the, "I need a good excuse ASAP" boat. There's no judging here; we've all done it. But every so often, someone's "insane" excuse turns out to be true. We may think our friend is trying to get out of hanging with us, but when we find out they weren't lying, we can't believe it. Their excuse seemed way too contrived! Their dog really did eat the directions to the party!
There's a Subreddit that poses the question, "What's the craziest excuse someone has given you that ended up being true?" The answers are endlessly entertaining.
