Have you ever wondered how many excuses you make in a day? Excuses have been an inevitable part of human lives since time immemorial. Children make excuses when they haven't finished their homework, latecomers at office have unbelievable stories to tell their frowning bosses. Adults make excuses to themselves to cover up for unhealthy habits they have built up over the years, especially to avoid the wrath of their spouses and kids.
