The Top 10 Excuses People Make When They "Can't Go Out"

Ugh, I don't want to go out tonight. I'm busy doing nothing.

The Top 10 Excuses People Make When They "Can't Go Out"
Just Post

At some point in your life, you've found reasons not to go out, some valid, some just excuses to not leave the comfort of your pajamas and bed. College students have used almost every excuse in the book, just so they don't have to go out. Sometimes, it's the same excuse as the last time they were invited to go out, but with a slight difference, so it makes it more believable.

I use the same excuse almost every weekend: I have work. And it's a great, valid excuse that dismisses me from all "why aren't you going out" harassment. So here are the top 10 reasons why some people can't and won't go out:

1. "I have class in the morning."

No, Julie, you have class at 12:30 in the afternoon. You'll get your eight hours of sleep if you go to bed at 3 am and wake up at 11 am. You'll be fine.

2. "I'm broke."

I just saw you post the two rolls of sushi you had for lunch on your Snapchat story. Was that sushi covered in gold flakes? You're not broke, you're just spending your money on food.

3. "I'm sick."

Oh, come on. When have your allergies ever stopped you from going out before? Take some Benadryl and let's get this show on the road. All You Can Drink tonight.

4. "My boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't want to go out."

Oh, are you two chained to one another? If you can use the bathroom without the other person, you can go out without them. Just don't do anything they wouldn't want you to.

5. "I have an exam tomorrow."

Plenty of people have studied just before their exam- it's called cramming. So come on, I'll call the Uber. You can study on the way to the club.

6. "I don't like the crowd."

Well, you aren't always going to like the crowd. Disney World is full of screaming children, but you don't see me complaining when I'm skipping through the park. Besides, underclassmen are fun to judge.

7. "It's my dog's birthday."

This is the only valid excuse I will accept. Please invite me to the dog party next time. Wish him a happy birthday from me.

8. "I have nothing to wear."

This is the biggest lie ever told by anyone with a walk-in closet. I promise. They have so much to wear, but they've "worn this exact outfit before to the exact bar," so they might as well donate it to charity.

9. "My ex will be there."

You don't have to talk to them. You don't even have to be near them. Do your own thing. The best revenge is living well. And don't even think about texting them.

10. "I'm just so tired."

You know what? I'm tired too. But some of us just spent an hour getting ready so we are going to go out, even if we are yawning on the way there.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
