Tardy Workers Can Blame It on the Bridge

April 02, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Slackers and sleepyheads have a new excuse for getting to work late.

Pennsylvania's Department of Transportation is offering Pittsburgh residents ready-made excuse cards on the Internet allowing them to blame their tardiness on the Fort Pitt Tunnel and bridge construction project.

A Web site devoted to the project, http://www.epenndot.com, allows the city's 75,000 daily commuters to click on "Excuse Me!" and fill out a form explaining their untimeliness.
