As someone who would rather be by myself than with a crowd of others, I've got tons of excuses up my sleeve. Although invitations are very flattering, and I do appreciate being invited to hang out with others, many situations throw me off and would make me uncomfortable. My ideal weekend is spending time with my dogs and parents over being with a rowdy crowd of teens. And I'm sure I'm not alone. With that being said, I've put together a list of both believable and humorous excuses to get out of plans, and I hope you may find some of these useful and entertaining.

16. I have to run some errands with my dad.

17. I'm busy that day.

Oh, you didn't tell me the day? I thought you said Thursday. Hmm... Well, I'm a very busy person.

18. It's Joe Jonas' birthday. I've got to celebrate, even if he isn't here.

25. I'm allergic to making plans.

26. I'm supporting my friend John's new project tomorrow night. . .

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it!

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators.
