    "I can't come because meteors are outside." Granted it was about two weeks after the event in russia in 2013 but still.
    "The FBI is investigating me."
    Are probably the best of the best as far as my group goes and most recent. But few others like.

    "My grandma is not letting me come over because she thinks its satanic."
    "I have to do laundry!" Was our friends excuse to not show up or go anywhere so was humorous to us at least.

    Mine has been "toothache."

    Which, when DMing, would've turned into "You look up as you exit the dungeon and see a cluster of Daishis dropping on you. Roll initiative."

    " You now I've been feeling short of breath and with chest pains. Well it turns out I fractured my sternum and the doctor has ordered me to hospital "

    (On the other hand once a player informed me he had his university course's final exam the day after the game. He wasn't telling me that to get out of the game, he still came, he was just making conversation )

    "Ran into a van." (OK, that one was for a WoW meetup, but it made a funny story at his wedding a few years later)

    "Wasn't sure game was actually happening because I didn't get a text back when I asked."

    "People's bad planning has become my problem." (Ok, actually it was basically "crunch time at work", but I think that was what he MEANT)

    Guilty and sometimes it was more like "You didn't send a email this week about the game so I thought there wasn't one"

    I think the weirdest reason that a friend ever gave for showing up late was that he fell asleep in the shower...I think he was serious too.

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    Where did you start yours?

    On an island where many NPCs were slaughtered by ooze monsters while the party tried desperately to escape. Ah, Memories.

    I forgot it was Sunday, as in what day it was, not when the game was scheduled.

    'I have to take my dog to the vet.'

    Every week for about four weeks running. Then we stopped asking him. And he stopped coming, and instead went online to trash-talk the gaming group for being 'inhospitable' and 'clique-y'.

    As the DM of that game, I would just like to step in and state that this actually happened and I'm still in shock from it.
