We've all heard some dodgy excuses from people trying to get out of doing a job, but this one beats them all.
Twitter user Ellie recently shared a picture of a work order she found on her door.
Guys maintenance tried to visit my house today and only left this on the door I'm crying
The note they left said...
We could not complete work requested because… black cat said “NO”.

As adorable as the cat is, we imagine it can get violent if needs must.
The excuse has been an inspiration for everyone out there who enjoys procrastinating.
Got a big deadline coming up?
Big meeting in the afternoon?
