So many times our phone starts ringing at the wrong moment – when watching a movie, when you want to get some sleep, when the one who’s calling is NOT in your favourite people… Then you don’t reply and give a lame excuse the next day when you meet them at work. Strangely, they all believe what you say!
Here are excuses my friends and I use:
1. “I’m out of credit, I couldn’t reply to your SMS.”
2. “My phone was on silent.”
3. “I didn’t have my phone with me all day.”
4. “I lost my phone, I forgot where I last put it.”
5. “Oh? I didn’t receive your call/message! Maybe there’s something wrong…” (delete the call or message before you say that)
6. “My phone’s being repaired.”
7. “My parents took my phone!”
8. “I was busy, sorry.”
9. “I was at a dinner/meeting.”
10. “I changed my ringing tone and didn’t recognise it when you rang.”
Do you have other excuses? If yes, feel free to comment!
If you see yourself through these, like this post.

I have used the exuse “Oh! Really? Damn. I guess my phone is possessed or something. I don’t know what is wrong with my phone. I haven’t been recieving texts or phone calls for the past few days!”
LOL! nice that one!
Very interesting points you have noted , thankyou for posting . “Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.” by Arthur Ashe.
I agree with your 10 Common Excuses For Not Replying to A Call/Message An Evil Nymph's Blog, superb post.
ALL of those reasons seem plausible to me.

I try to pick up unles i’m watching a movie that I can’t put on pause. Mainly, I tell them that when I call back.
Thanks for all your visits and “Likes”.
Number 10 is a great one, bravo 🙂
I would state: So sorry, but I couldn’t come back to you, because just in the moment of typing your number I got a small fly in my eye. Finally, trying hard to get it out… it worked and because of lot of tears, it’s wings have been so wet…
Decided, to take her to the car wash center’s big fan, to dry the wings. All went perfect. With super dried wings she could fly away. But, when I left the car wash, I smashed into a little truck. The next morning, I woke up in the hospital and when I tried to answer you they told me: No phones allowed.
Haha wow I like that xD
Good advice ,as long the excuses work.Have a joyous Christmas and happy new year.jalal
I’ve been in the garden planting plants or putting up the trampoline
You’re not going to believe this but a rhinocerous ate my phone!
I have often used,”Sorry but you know that I can’t hear my phone at the shooting range.” It kinda works because its so loud that you really can’t hear it.
“I left my phone in the locker at the gym”..this works because it hints to her that you are working out and perhaps she might want to treat you better. just in case.
Haha, thanks for the additional suggestions!
