Today, I had to explain to my boss that I was late to work because somehow my hand slipped when I was brushing my teeth, and I hit myself in the eye with the brush. I had to remove my contacts, wash my eye, and find my glasses. He didn't believe me, but at least my eye is minty fresh. FML

I guess you could say your vision is in mint condition.

I would think your eye would be a little red and noticeably irritated after that- signs that should prove your story true to your boss!

Right. I would think so too.

Coming from personal experience, the visibility of leftover irritation usually fades after 10-30 minutes

Or the boss would think they were high

Let's not forget the fact that OP had to look for her glasses, which means she normally just uses the contacts. That should also be a clear indication that the story was true to OP'S boss.

do it to him and show him you're being for real :)))

I really don't think that's a good idea.

Somw people just don't know the struggle that comes with brushing your teeth

If that's your first time being late, or you almost never show up late, then I don't understand why your boss doesn't believe you... but if you show up late a lot, I can see where is coming from.

That last sentence made me crack up!

Apparently people are having difficulties with brushing their teeth this week.

You have a valid excuse. However, you need to be convincing when you deliver your story. You don't have to tell the details of what happened if it sounds silly. Try to put some flavors to the story so that it sounds genuine.
