Eight Excuses to Tell Your Spouse, Kids, Coworkers and Friends So You Can Search the 1940 Census in Peace
Posted by Diane

Start memorizing these excuses now! You'll need them to roll right off your tongue next week when you're forgetting about dinner, ignoring the house and putting off work in order to search the 1940 census:

Your spouse:

  • "I'm just trying to deal with some schedule problems. Sorry it's taking so long."

  • “Can it wait? I’m busy doing taxes.”

Your kids:

  • “I was on the internet ordering you presents just for being so good. Now go do your homework before I change my mind.”

Your coworkers:

  • “___ , hold my calls. I’m going to be tied up with the Washington account all day.”

Your boss:

  • "I was just pulling together those names—er, I mean numbers—you requested." (Important: Have a spreadsheet open you can click to if your boss pops up over your shoulder.)

Your friends:

  • “Can’t make it to choir practice/book club/happy hour on Monday—I’ve got a nasty case of enumeritis.”

  • “I can’t talk right now. I'm spending time with relatives.”

  • “Tonight’s not good. I have a date with Steve Morse.”
